Full Time

Happy Volcano is looking for a Backend Developer who is experienced in putting online services and “games as a service” live ops solutions into practice.

We would like to meet someone with experience and self-motivation, who can help us lift our game You Suck At Parking (and future projects) to the multiplayer behemoth we intend it to be. This will involve creating load testing scenarios, measuring and optimizing how many players can be packed onto a server, setting up automated testing solutions, creating and optimizing in-game events and promotions, handling user generated content and developing monetization solutions, estimating the cost of infrastructure based on the number of users by location...

If these are the things that get your blood flowing, we really want to talk to you!
