Leading-edge gaming studio looking for an experienced web developer with good coding skills and an excellent understanding of web development, frameworks, and back-end technologies, to join our fast-growing team.
We are developing Ember Sword, a groundbreaking platform-agnostic and Free-to-Play MMORPG set in a player-driven fantasy universe, with digital collectible cosmetics and a blockchain-enhanced economy.
It’s a universe where the players control the world through true land ownership. A game in which all valuable cosmetic items are tokenized as scarce non-fungible crypto-collectibles, which are acquired by players through gameplay objectives, instead of sold through loot boxes. With a fan community spanning more than a hundred thousand people, a strong advisory board, a $2M investment round this year, and a very successful first land sale campaign ($1.5M) that sold out in just a few hours, Ember Sword is aiming high and growing fast.
As a web developer at Bright Star Studios, you'll be doing front-end and/or back-end web development. We care greatly about the quality and performance of our code and don't shy away from refactoring if needed.
You are a creative coder with a strong feel for design and microservices.
You have good coding skills. Specifically in HTML5, SCSS, JS (Vue JS) for front-end. Golang or Nodejs for back-end. Postgress and Redis for the database.
You can do rapid prototyping to evaluate ideas.
Experience in backend services such as Postgres for DB + Redis, microservices architecture, Prometheus for data aggregation, Logstash for logging, and Docker for all microservices.
You are willing to relocate to Denmark (Aarhus or Copenhagen) or able to convince us that you won't have to.
