Hidden Door is an early stage company building the future of immersive narrative entertainment. Our first product is an online multiplayer experience for playing and sharing adventures across a variety of creator-led story worlds, enabled by a new kind of narrative AI.
We're looking for a platform software engineer to help design, build, and maintain the backend for our game and platform. Our server architecture is substantially written in Python to support our machine learning systems (e.g. spaCy, PyTorch, Hugging Face).
You'll be joining our small and mighty engineering team, with opportunities to work on all parts of our system! If you're interested in working on creative experiences at the intersection of software engineering, ops, gaming and AI, we want to talk to you 🙂
We'd love to meet if you have:
