What will you do at Social Point?

We're looking for software engineers 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.

Our backend applications are developed using several technologies and programming languages (PHP, Golang, AWS EC2, Kubernetes, 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 be part of our games team and work closely with game design, player experience, mobile, 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!
