About us:

We are a rapidly growing social game developer, with top ranked games on Mobile and Facebook. We have over 50 million fans worldwide playing our games all over the world!

There are about 350 of us creating super fun games in our offices, located 10 minutes from the beach, in the beautiful and sunny Barcelona.

Last year we were acquired by Take Two Interactive (GTA, Bioshock, XCOM … ) and have been expanding our activities, creating exciting new opportunities for top people to join our teams. We are currently looking for a Senior Backend Engineer!

Join us and help us make this year the breakout year in mobile social gaming!

What will you do at Social Point?

As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will help us to solve exciting technical challenges like serving more than 200K concurrent players!

Our backends are developed using several technologies and programming languages (PHP, Golang, Python, Lua, etc…), so you should not be afraid to work with our existing code,  extend, maintain and continuously refactor the backend of our games.

Your job is not only about coding. You will also have to work with other teams like mobile, analytics or systems to integrate your components, as well as writing technical designs, documentation, knowledge sharing and training other team members.

As a backend engineer, you will also work in designing and implementing high available systems for the server part of our games. You will be part of our games team and work closely with systems, frontend, and other departments. You will be integrated with business decisions as part of our technology strategy.

 

This is you

  • More than 5 years of programming experience.
  • Worked and mastered languages like Golang, PHP, Java, C#, …
  • Intermediate systems knowledge and understand what happens behind your code
  • Experience designing and implementing complex systems with multiple parts and technologies
  • Experience with application scalability, performance, and reliability
  • Experience with application and system orchestration: understand where you code fits within the big picture
  • You accept challenges: you’ll be happy to see our traffic doubling instead of being daunted :-)
  • You are able to explain technical issues to both technical and non-technical people.

 

You also are

Professional, problem solver, proactive, team worker, rigorous and detail oriented.

You are smart, creative and practical at the same time. And you have the ability to work fast, quickly get up to speed with existing code, and learn new concepts easily.

 

As a SocialPointer you will enjoy...

  • You’ll get the newest and most powerful devices and equipment to work with, along with a Spotify Premium account.
  • “Mens sana in corpore sano” is the Latin for “a healthy mind in a healthy body”. Our SocialPointers get a healthy Monday breakfast + delicious daily lunch menus! Want to stay in shape? We have a brand new gym, football and basketball teams along with a fantastic physiotherapist.
  • “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” so we get fresh fruit at the office every day but of course you also get a private medical insurance, just in case.
  • Monthly events are there to get you to know your colleagues, drop by our hairdresser’s to get ready (and forget your wallet). 
  • People development is key for us: coupling an amazing training budget just for you and our internal mobility programs you get real growth opportunities!
  • If you are new to sunny Barcelona you can also join our Newbies Club: we offer weekend activities once a month, Spanish lessons and help with all your boring paperwork!

 The list just goes on and on... so get your game on and apply now!
