Kano (www.kanoapps.com) is looking for a junior game developer to help drive development on MOB Wars: La Cosa Nostra, one of our most successful games.

Our goal is to build long-lasting player-centric gaming experiences.

We’re a small team where the code you write gets deployed fast. At Kano, you’ll be responsible for development, testing, and code quality.

If the idea of working collaboratively across creative, marketing, production, and live-ops teams sounds exciting, then we want to hear from you!

We offer flexible hours, an honest and able group of peers, the opportunity to take charge of the work that you do, and the chance to work in beautiful Victoria, BC.

Your background should include:

  • 1+ years development with high-level languages (eg. PHP, Java, C#, JS, etc)
  • Game development experience (side projects count!)
  • Back-end or full stack development experience
  • Understanding of OO and modern software design principles
  • A strong desire to build something that people really want

It'd be a big plus if you have:

  • You have worked with applications serving thousands of people at a time
  • Experience shipping social or mobile applications (iOS, Android, Facebook, etc),
  • Experience with HTML5 and Javascript games development
  • Experience with game optimization techniques
  • Database experience
  • Experience with AWS
  • Working knowledge or experience with Unix/Linux


About Kano

Bootstrapped in 2008, we have been a profitable and growing game studio for nearly a decade. With smash hits like Free Rider HD and Mob Wars LCN (Top 100 grossing game on Facebook), and our recently announced FUBAR: Just Give'r, set to release in summer 2019, we connect people through play and put players first.

Locally owned and headquartered in downtown Victoria, BC, we believe in giving small teams of talented people challenging problems and getting out of their way. That’s why we look for the best and brightest to join our team; people who have talent, vision, and commitment.
