Our goal is to build long lasting player-centric gaming experiences that have challenges and opportunities in both the business and technical realms.

  • Writing efficient and organized code using best practices and standards
  • Monitoring game dashboards, logs and metrics to ensure your code is working
  • Working closely with small development teams in an agile environment (Kanban or Scrum) to continuously ship code
  • Working with product and creative teams to plan and execute development and releases, building towards world-class products


Your background should include:

  • Knowledge of Object Oriented Programming (OOP)
  • Confidence with an Object Oriented language (Java, C#, PHP, C++, Python, Javascript, etc)
  • Experience with modern SQL or NoSQL databases
  • Experience with web development or HTML5/JS applications
  • Ability to learn quickly
  • A strong desire to build something that people really want
