Job description

Project

The world’s first hybrid games platform. Hybrid games are a new category of entertainment that seamlessly mix games with live shows that are embedded directly inside the games. This mobile-first content gives users a more engaging game experience, with stunning visuals and enhanced interactivity while allowing users to compete for prizes. We enrich everyday life by providing captivating, positive entertainment — with rewarding interactions that transform virtual wins into real-world rewards.
Regardless of your role, department, or level, we focus on cultivating a supportive, team-oriented, and collaborative environment. The beauty of joining our team at this stage is that each department is currently relatively small, meaning that you will see your contribution have an impact on our products, and your work will directly influence the evolution of hybrid games!

That’s where you come in!
We are seeking a highly skilled and experienced back-end Software Engineer to join our team in the games industry, with a focus on scalability. The back-end Software Engineer will be responsible for designing and implementing the server-side logic and infrastructure that supports the development and operation of games, with a particular emphasis on ensuring that the systems are able to scale to support millions of live active players. This role will involve working closely with game developers, operations teams, and other stakeholders to ensure that the back-end systems are reliable, scalable, and efficient.
Your challenge
Join our dynamic team as a back-end Software Engineer and take our games platform to the next level as we scale. With the challenge of supporting millions of requests per second, you’ll have the opportunity to ensure the reliability, scalability, and efficiency of our back-end systems and make a significant impact on our success by:

  • Design, build and maintain highly scalable and resilient distributed systems.
  • Integrate with third-party APIs and services as needed.
  • Collaborate with game developers and other stakeholders to ensure that the back-end systems meet the needs of the organization.
  • Continuously improve the back-end systems to ensure maximum reliability, scalability, and efficiency, with a particular focus on supporting millions of live active players.
  • Monitor and troubleshoot issues with the back-end systems, and take corrective action as needed.

Who you are
If you have experience with and a strong understanding of event-driven microservices architectures and the ability to work collaboratively with other team members, we encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity. We are looking for someone who has:

  • 7+ years of experience in software development, with a focus on horizontally scalable back-end systems.
  • Experience with microservices and event driven architectures.
  • Strong technical background and good knowledge of data structures and algorithms.
  • Excellent system design skills.
  • Proficiency with programming languages such as Typescript.

Experience with the following technologies:

  • Node.js

  • Google Cloud Platform (GKE, Cloud Run, Cloud Functions, LB, VPC)
  • Amazon Web Services (Lambda, DynamoDB, S3, Route53, CloudFront, etc)
  • Strong problem-solving skills and the ability to work collaboratively with other team members.
