Role Description

We're looking for an excellent C# engineer to help us build our next mobile game. You don’t necessarily need experience in game development, but we do need you to have plenty of experience of end-to-end product delivery as a Senior Engineer, ideally working the full stack.

You'll have proven software engineering skills, practising clean code with an emphasis on design patterns, testability and quality. You should have a good understanding of different architectures, algorithms and data models. If you have previous experience of application development, this would be a great opportunity for you to move to a game development environment.

We build our games on the Unity 3D engine; if you don't have Unity (or similar) experience we'll trade that for UX skills, but strong engineering practices, C# and Agile experience are essential.

This is a permanent position in an incredibly exciting, fast moving field. We are a small team and you will be one of our senior programmers, so you will be working on some of our most complex challenges. Every task you undertake will have a direct influence on the game, will make our players happy or will further your knowledge - hopefully all three. You'll work alongside our CTO and will be instrumental to the team and to the growth of the company.
