If I said to you 'dog face filter', what do you think of? Snapchat, right? The camera app that is recognised around the world and used and loved by millions!

Well, I have a role there as a Front-End Software Engineer that's just waiting to be snapped up! I won’t need to use a fancy filter on this to make it look good, it speaks for itself.

Snap Inc are looking to bring a Front-End Software Engineer into their PlayCanvas tech team to shape and create the games you'll be able to play in the app with friends, family and strangers all around the world.

PlayCanvas are based in Snap Inc's central London offices from where you’ll be collaborating with tools and engine programmers to build a truly remarkable next-generation platform for creating incredible HTML5 games.

What you’ll do:

Develop a world class web-based game editor front-end
Work with engine run-time programmers to expose engine features to game developers
Optimise and maintain your codebase across different operating systems and browsers

Essential skills & experience...

  • Professional experience developing web application front ends
  • Exceptional coding skills in JavaScript (ES6), HTML5 and CSS3
  • Experience with Node.js
  • Understanding of game engine architecture
  • Knowledge of 3D mathematics

Ideally you'll also be able to bring...

  • Practical experience working on game editor front-ends
  • Experience in either real-time graphics, animation, or physics
  • Experience with content creation apps like 3ds Max, Maya or Blender

Snap Inc also offers relocation assistance and visa sponsorship as well as medical, dental, vision and life insurance benefits ….and then they offer a personal pension plan, gym membership, maternity, paternity…I could go on but you get the idea!

When you join this newly created team you'll also enjoy a start-up feel and atmosphere, coupled with the financing and security that comes with the backing of a global entity as large and recognised as Snap Inc.

Keep Calm and waka waka...
