We are working with a new Social Gaming start-up (no gambling parts to the game), they currently develop RPG based games for mobile devices and have plans to expand into other genres in the future. They were founded by social gaming veterans who have spent time at some of the largest and most successful gaming houses in the world. They are currently looking to add a developer to the team to work on a highly performant and scalable games platform written in Scala whilst also utilising Akka, Reddis and DynamoDB. They are ideally looking for people who are open minded, enjoy solving logical problems, complex challenges and a fast paced environment. The team practice Agile (SCRUM), and Continuous Delivery through automation of build, tests, and deployments. They place an emphasis on code quality and are looking for like minded people to join the team. Everything is currently hosted on AWS, an interest or understanding in DevOps or Continuous Delivery would be beneficial as the current team contribute to all aspects of software development.

There is an emphasis on finding a bright individual who has an interest in gaming and can pick up Scala and other new technologies on the job – previous Scala development experience (personal or commercial) would be handy, but it’s by no means essential. The role would also suit a Java developer interested in moving to Scala.

If you are interested in finding a job with a good working environment that will also allow you to code in Scala on some complex problems around games platform development – this could be a really good option.

1-5 years commercial Scala or Java development experience (personal or commercial)
Interested in the gaming industry
Computer Science/Software Engineering or Maths/Physics related degree

It would be beneficial to have an interest or experience in some of the following:
AWS, DevOps, NoSQL

The company is not necessarily looking for the finished article in a developer and will be happy to provide training and mentoring to new recruits.

If you like the sound of this role, we’d love to hear from you. You can send your CV to or call us on 020 7866 8155.
