  • Ensure that new features and systems meet high performance requirements and match the project’s C++ code style
  • Analyze and solve bugs
  • Document your work to share knowledge on how to use the new systems and functionalities
  • Contribute to planning sessions and code reviews with your peers

Qualifications

You as a person
You have a genuine interest in creating scalable online systems that can serve millions of players.

  • Have good understanding and professional experience of working with modern C++, including package management, refactoring, optimization, debugging and testing

Good to know 
As we aim to build a team who continuously push the boundaries of what’s possible within game development (and because we love to learn and grow from the people around us), we might ask you to do a practical test as a part of the recruitment process.
