  • Experience with using Git or similar source control systems.
  • Experience with debugging and optimizing software.
  • You’re eager to learn new skills.
  • You’re able to work independently.
  • Having a strong vision and drive.
  • Having a strong user-oriented mindset.

What do we have to offer?

  • Be able to make entertainment games with a purpose to make our world a better place.
  • Responsibility and freedom in organizing and executing your work.
  • Room for experimentation and growth.
  • Scheduled time and budget for personal development and training.
  • Work with a creative and driven team of professionals.
