PlayerLands is a venture capital-backed shopping platform designed from the ground up for video games. It lets developers and PC game server-owners set up secure, good-looking, user-friendly stores that sell in-game items to players. There is a share options scheme available for employees.

As Senior Software Engineer, you’ll be one of the leading lights in our growing team. Your experience and proven track record will help your more junior colleagues develop best practices, but since we’re a start-up the ability to muck in and get the job done is also an essential part of your mindset.

 

You’ll be working with non-technical stakeholders, so your strong communication skills and ability to think and work in an agile manner will help you turn fuzzy requirements into practical, well-architected working systems. You’ll also need to innovate on the fly, applying your ingenuity to the issues of the day, whilst keeping an eye on longer-term goals.


Experience

An understanding of video games, payment providers, messaging queuing, distributed APIs and components would all be an advantage, as would several years’ engineering experience.
