Web Developer - Impact 11 billion gameplays each month!

Have you spent your days working in the LNMP (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP) stack, playing with PHP, Python or Erlang (or others) on the side? Are you looking for a way to actually have impact on millions of visitors every day? This is the place for you! Regardless of whether you know PHP, Python or Erlang. We just want someone with solid fundamentals who wants to learn new technologies.

Great web developers are generalists. To understand the web, you need to know a lot more than how to render variables in templates or pull objects from an ORM. You need to have spent time learning about networking, software architecture, web protocols and standards, graphic design and user interfaces. Most of all, you need to be passionate about the web and the amazing impact it has on our daily lives!

The tasks and responsibilities of this role include:

  • Designing and developing dynamic, large, and scalable high-traffic web applications;
  • Participating in the evolution of the platform architecture;
  • Participating in full life-cycle development, including quality assurance;
  • Keeping up-to-date with the latest technologies and applying them to your work; and
  • Contributing to unit, integration, and load tests.

Your Profile:

  • 3+ years of experience with high-volume, high-availability web applications
  • Solid understanding of object oriented design (OOD), coding and testing patterns (unit testing, automated testing, TDD, and/or CI)
  • Experience writing and maintaining code in an interpreted language including, but not limited to: Ruby, Perl, PHP, Python, Erlang
  • Demonstrated ability to learn new technologies and/or frameworks
  • Some experience with front-end development (HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery) is a plus
  • Good communication skills in English, both written and verbal
