Senior Backend Engineer

 Creatubbles is developing Super Code Strike, a gaming platform that lets players create and explore 3D worlds in a multiplayer setting. Most things in Super Code Strike can be “hacked” using code to customize and modify how they function. We are looking for an experienced backend software engineer who has the skills, experience, understanding, and drive required to join our team delivering robust, high-performance APIs and services.

As a backend developer at Creatubbles you will be our back-end specialist, responsible for designing & maintaining the services that Super Code Strike depends on. Your primary focus will be development of all server-side logic, definition and maintenance of our databases, and ensuring high-performance and responsiveness of our APIs. A solid understanding of front-end technologies is therefore necessary as well.

 

YOU WILL

  • Design, build, and maintain high-performance APIs used by our internal services.

  • Strive to produce well-documented, reusable, and testable code.

  • Work closely with the team to determine priorities, specs, and report progress.

  • Help design and develop a scalable and flexible architecture.

  • Help refine engineering practices, standards, and tooling.

  • Experience building complex user-facing applications, reusable code and libraries for future use.

  • Experience developing and maintaining robust APIs (or components).

  • Experience implementing unit tests and automated testing platforms.

  • Experience with Node.js and TypeScript.

  • Experience working with NoSQL databases (MongoDB, DynamoDB, etc.)

  • Knowledge of relational databases (PostgreSQL, MSSQL, etc.)

  • Knowledge of security best practices.

  • A proven track record of delivering well-designed and tested software.

  • Integration of user-facing elements developed by front-end developers with server side logic.

  • Securely storing and processing personal information is extremely important to us and our users. You have extensive proven experience dealing with this.

A compatible mindset and approach

  • Empathetic, and energetic, and intellectually curious.

  • You insist on clean code that leads to awesome user experiences.

  • Confidence to explore and try, with the humility to ask questions.

  • Understanding of, and fundamental interest in, the trends and disruptive impacts of technology and how they can be used to innovate for our users.

  • Passion for problem solving.

  • Grit and perseverance.

  • Ability to see Super Code Strike not just for what it is but what it can be with the understanding and practical ability to bridge the gap between the two systematically.

  • Place a high value on security.

BONUS QUALIFICATIONS

  • Management of hosting environments, including database administration and scaling an application to support load changes.

  • Deep understanding of the interactions and growth dynamics inherent in successful social platforms.

  • Experience working on large scale social platforms, creativity applications or platforms, and/or on innovative 21st century education / learning solutions.
