The world of startups can be tough, but infinitely more rewarding. You’ll have a lot of responsibility, impact and importance. There can be a lot of hard work and a lack of resources; but if we succeed we will have made a dent in the gaming industry.

You'll be working with solving quite a varied set of game-play and programming problems and innovating creative solutions in a unexplored niche. Our games have quite a lot of depth, and you implement advanced systems well as creating fun gameplay. You'll get to work on different parts of the game and have a big influence on the codebase and the mechanics of the game. You'll shoulder responsibility over the project's code and technical side.

This is a senior programmer role. What we hope you can bring:

  • 5-10 years in a programming role.
  • Confidence in leading projects and shouldering responsibilities
  • Experience with the Unity engine and C# programming.
  • Ability to write good, well structured code.
  • Working knowledge in developing mobile games.
