Karlsruhe | hybrid working | full-time | from now
We are one of the leading publishers of free-to-play online games based in Karlsruhe, Germany.
The Platform Team develops and maintains a sizeable chunk of the backend services responsible for steering, streamlining and integrating the operations and communication that happens between our partners, the Gameforge Client and our users. API development with focus on performance, stability, interoperability and reliability is our forte.
As a Node.js Developer you will help build, evolve and maintain Gameforge's ever-growing publishing platform and it will be up to you, together with your teammates to create state of the art applications and refactor or maybe completely overhaul older solutions. You will be joining us as a full on Node.js Developer but for our team that also means analyzing how our services operate; consulting on new features and keeping an eye on not just the present but the near future - in other words - we don't just write the code, we own our codebase it with all the responsibility and pride that entails.
Please submit your application in English.
