HTML5 Games Developer

We are looking for team-players who combine meticulous attention to detail, along with the ability to get behind the team vision and help us deliver the roadmap.

You’ll have the ability to write clean, understandable code and be keen to share knowledge across the studio and beyond. We want developers who are passionate about perfection, are capable of self-managing, and who know how to deliver applications on time and issue free. In return you’ll be given licence to express your creativity and work as part of a collective delivering compelling player experiences, having fun while you do it!

 

Responsibilities:

You will be required to provide Front End development for our online gambling games. Typically, projects can be broken into two types: new games and portfolio support. 

New Game Projects: You will develop HTML5 casino games (predominantly slots) using Typescript on a Robotlegs/Inversify architecture. You will be able to adapt to changing functional and design requirements during an Agile development process.

Portfolio Support: You will work with current code on our live games portfolio. This may be in response to a bug identified by one of our partners, a game change to meet new regulations, or in order to reskin an existing game. This is mostly a Typescript./PureMVC stack, but older games may require a little native javascript.

Whatever type of project you work on you’ll be expected to contribute creatively to make games players want to play, and also help the team refine our processes to become leaner and more efficient.

 

Your Experience:

We have positions available at all levels, whether your background is currently online casino development or more casual Canvas/WebGL games.

Technical requirements:

Ability with Typescript (or experience with Actionscript)

Demonstrably knowledgeable in the principals of Object-Oriented Programming

Professional or extensive personal experience with Pixi.js
