Lead Software Engineer - Game Optimization Platform




Paris, France


Programming and Development




Mid-Senior Level

Permanent | Full Time


Voodoo is a tech company focused on creating mobile apps for a wide audience. 

Our goal is to entertain the world with snackable content and gaming apps! 


Leader in the mobile gaming market, we are the n°1 company with the most monthly downloads worldwide on the App Store. 


Based on our principles and values, you will have the chance to join a small, independent, and helpful team. 

You will have full ownership of your role allowing you to be unique and continuously strive for excellence to deliver innovative and creative projects.




As a Lead Software Engineer, you will lead the Gaming Engineering team, in charge of the Game optimization platform.


The platform is used internally (by our live-ops team and internal studios) and will be open to external use at a later stage. It is key to fast iterations and data-driven decisions.


The platform empowers product managers, allowing them to seamlessly and remotely: 

- configure games (change gameplay elements and parameters, optimize meta features…)

- set up, launch and stop AB tests

- target specific segments of our audience and offer them tailored gaming experiences


Down the road, it will also fully leverage Voodoo’s custom analytics capabilities and become the one-stop shop for efficient, data-driven and long-term product management.


The platform is therefore crucial to the core business: all launched games will be managed via our internal platform to offer the best experience to millions of users worldwide.


Main technologies we use: Vuejs for the front, Nodejs, Kubernetes, DynamoDB, S3 and SQS for the back.


  • Lead a team of software engineers while contributing technically to projects.
  • Architect, design, and build projects in a fast-paced environment.
  • Contribute to promoting a strong engineering culture, passion for quality and things well done.

Must have

  • Experience with balancing a hands-on engineering role while managing teams of 5-10 engineers.
  • Rock-solid foundation in Computer Science (data structures, algorithms, software design) and solid experience in Object Oriented Programming and architecture.
  • Have worked in Agile environments, are passionate for shipping quality code and for automated testing.
  • Great oral and written communication and presentation skills in English (French is a plus).

Keep Calm and waka waka...
