Senior Backend Engineer (Java)


5+ years of relevant coding experience

Playstudios is responsible for building real-time MMO (massively multiplayer online) games, played by millions of users across the world, with new features released on a daily basis.

We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our Platform domain and play a key role in our growth while taking ownership of the platform’s backend discipline across multi apps.

We believe in clean architecture and implementations that plan ahead and see the big picture (product-wise and technology-wise), we encourage learning (and failing) and sharing, and we deeply believe in taking responsibility and ownership of our projects.

In this role, you will develop core capabilities of the backend platform as well as the platform’s BE framework on which our micro-services ecosystem is built. Additionally, you'll manage the roadmap of the domain’s backend, execute full software development lifecycle of new components and business features, build high-scale cloud-based real-time systems in the multiplayer world, and develop microservice-based distributed systems, both from scratch and by decomposing legacy components.
