Back-end Game Developer

Salary Competitive

Stay awhile and listen, 

Back-end Game Developer

Are you the person who can program the back-end of new games based on a concept description but at other times be a part of a team working to improve a live title? - then please read on:


Just around 1.000.000 users around the world play one or more Trophy Games titles every month - and that number will rise over the coming years. One way that we want to ensure this is through adding new games to our already 15 games strong portfolio. With this position we want to expand our around 50 person strong development organization with a back-end focused person who primarily can participate in taking 1-2 new game titles through the process of getting from their current concept stage, all the way through to live - and life thereafter. But at other times it is likely to be more relevant that you’ve got a steady hand in developing the back-end of a game that’s already live and is built by somebody else. The job is a full-time position (not a project hire) ideally covered from our wonderful Copenhagen office.


We’re looking for a person who feels comfortable applying their creative talent on developing the best (mobile first) manager game experiences on the market. This position is with a team that will be put together to execute these new titles and in order for you to add to the small but efficient team, you’re probably thinking “damn - I’m good at that” to the following:

  • Work on a game from concept to live

  • PHP programming

  • PHP/Laravel package development

  • MySQL

  • Performance focused development and optimization

  • Developing new features based on existing code framework

  • Git experience

  • Linux experience

On top of feeling comfortable with the above, you're a team player who's used to achieving your goals in collaboration with others and you’re not afraid to air your opinions whilst listening to your teammates as well. Oh - and by the way: You also love games :-)


You will join an organization of geeky and creative professionals on a mission to make games people want to play for decades. We have an office filled with awesome people, lots of coffee (and beer!) and great vibes - which is basically all you need to create awesome games! To create games, we play games, we discuss and invent, and then we are pretty good at celebrating. Some of the other perks of working at Trophy Games are the location in the center of Copenhagen, a flexible working schedule and the possibility to work from home when needed. This creates the perfect work-life balance and carve out time for your kids, friends and personal side projects.

We favor diversity and embrace individuality and different backgrounds. We strive to create a relaxed and comfortable environment where everyone is encouraged to be their authentic selves.


Apply no later than Sunday December 11th, we're excitedly awaiting your application!
