Medior/Senior Backend Developer

Salary Competitive

CREY is building the most accessible non-technical game creation ecosystem in the world. Taking formats traditionally known from professional studios and giving them to the creators in all of us.

We are looking for a Backend Programmer who can take part in our multi-service system development in .NET 6/Core. 

Your day-to-day work will include

  • Building new features: our multiple service backend is based on C# / .NET framework and deployed in Kubernetes. Help us add more features for users or create tools to improve our productivity.
  • Shaping our architecture: we are always looking for new technologies that can make our services faster or solutions that make the product scale.
  • Deploying your changes to users: the code you write has little value unless it actually reaches the users. Evolve our deployment pipeline, add metrics so we can collect feedback, or alerts to detect failure. Don't forget: you build it, you run it.
  • Collaborating with people: most features require work in other areas, like UI, game code, art, etc. As a backend developer you'll get plenty of opportunity to coordinate work with other people, both in Budapest and in Copenhagen. Be prepared to teach and coach other devs, especially when it comes to client teams.

Your mad skills

  • C# & .NET practical and theoretical knowledge (2+ years of experience)
  • Basic understanding of microservice architectures
  • Experience using continuous integration / delivery tools (Azure DevOps, GitHub Actions, etc.)
  • Working experience with git (preferably GitHub)
  • REST API knowledge
  • Working experience with T-SQL or other SQL dialects
  • Familiarity with non-functional requirements (security, Clean Code, SOLID principles, availability / latency requirements, etc.)
  • Worked with asynchronous programming
  • Have met agile development (Scrum, Kanban, etc.)

We would love it if you also have experience with one or more of the following

  • Public cloud environments (Azure, AWS, GCP, etc.)
  • Other languages (Rust, C++, Python, Javascript, Typescript, etc.)
  • ORMs (Entity Framework, etc.)
  • NoSQL (CosmosDB, MongoDB, etc.)
  • Static content hosting providers (CDN solutions, cloudflare, netlify, etc.)
  • experience with monitoring systems (Thanos, Prometheus, Grafana, Application Insights, LogAnalytics, etc.)
  • Game development
  • Multiplayer development (server hosting, low latency reliable UDP communication, etc.)
  • GDPR knowledge

This role is for you if you are

  • Capable of independent work
  • Proficient in English, both spoken & written
  • Open for learning new technologies
  • Creative, friendly

What's in it for you

  • Cutting edge technologies
  • Continuous development opportunities (technical trainings, English lessons, etc.)
  • Participation in warrant program
  • Work-life balance
  • Traveling opportunity to Denmark
  • Sport opportunity
  • On-site work and social life in our brand new office in Budapest
