  • Collaborating closely with all departments and key members to create and deliver an exceptional and involving online game play experience
  • Considering and weighing all aspects of proposed solutions from a technical point of view
  • Creating and assessing technical design documents and content created by other project members

Your Profile:
  • Strong passion for online games
  • Great development skills in server-side Java, PHP frameworks and MySQL (please provide references of relevant projects)
  • Ability to articulate and document technical designs clearly and analytically
  • Ability to produce concise, performant, well documented and easily extendable code (please provide samples)
  • College degree and/or equivalent game industry experience
  • Ability to communicate effectively and objectively
  • Great organizational and problem-solving skills
  • Strong analytical, communication, intercultural and interpersonal skills
  • Willingness and stamina to work with tight deadlines under stressful conditions
  • Readiness to travel internationally
  • Excellent oral and written English skills

We aim to keep rocking the games market with new quality titles – so our team is the foundation for that success. If you want to join us, drive your projects successfully and enjoy the great Mediterranean style work life balance, send us your application
