About Fireteam

Fireteam doesn’t only create backend services for games, we also help development teams with integration and do custom development for them based on our expertise. As an online services engineer you will work with our clients to improve their games or build features for them, but also work on the SDKs for Fireline. We find that the best way to get a great SDK is for it to be written by a developer that actually uses it and has experience shipping games.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced software engineer who can help us further develop the Fireteam online services. Most of our infrastructure is written in Python and our primary database is PostgreSQL. The responsibilities of a software engineer working on our platform will go beyond the server side however, so additional experience with front-end development (HTML, Javascript, React, CSS, etc) is preferred.

As a software engineer you will join the team responsible for the Fireteam backend services and work together with game teams to implement features as they become required. This work can bridge to the game client SDK code as well as to our web-based developer-facing tools.
