Working at Social Point
My team builds scaleable ands highly dependable IT infrastructures, whilst reducing both operational and infrastructure costs. As games grow and produce new features, the challenge is to grow these infrastructures and ensure that they remain stable and failsafe.
From a global perspective, it’s awesome to be part of a Barcelona-based company that is still relatively small but is making noise all around the world. From a more personal perspective, I am incredibly proud of our systems crew. Working with these guys is amazing.
