In 2017, we became part of the Take Two Interactive Family, that has legendary labels & studios such as Rockstar or 2K (GTA, Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock, NBA, X-Com...) & we have been expanding our activities ever since, as well as creating exciting new opportunities for super talented people to work with us!

Join the challenge  & help us make this year the breakout year in mobile social gaming.

We're looking to welcome yet another talented Junior Backend Developer that will work on services for games that are played and loved by several million users every day, all over the world. Those services must scale-out to serve high users traffic every day and must be developed with the highest quality this competitive industry requires. We expect from our developers to keep our tech state-of-the-art and, at the same time, come up with great new ideas.
 

What will you do at Socialpoint?

  • You have a public portfolio of programming projects or have collaborated in open source projects
  • You’re interested in highly scalable, performant and reliable applications development
  • You accept challenges: you’ll be happy to see our traffic doubling instead of being daunted
  • You think outside the box & have the capacity to provide creative solution to day to day problems.
  • Eagerness to learn & work in a team
