UNITY TECHNOLOGIES FINLAND, Kaivokatu 8 B, 00100 Helsinki
In Helsinki, you’ll be using technology like machine learning, micro-services and messaging-based architecture on a scale you won’t see many other places. Essentially, you’ll be doing what Google does on the web (only you’ll be doing it in games). What’s more, your work will have a positive impact. It will help creators get paid for all their hard work by powering ads in hundreds of thousands of games. And it will give people the option to play for free by putting those ads in front of close to one billion gamers.
We are looking for an experienced Back-End Developer to join our Unity Monetization team in Helsinki. To qualify, you should have a solid background in software development, preferably in positions where you’ve already had to take initiative and make decisions on how things are done.
Our technology stack is built to create solid products that allow us to operate in a high-volume environment. Stability, quality, and robustness of code are requirements in our development environment, as our advertising network reaches millions of game players each day. Our teams take the lead and responsibility in designing and developing solutions that enables us to scale towards the future and meet the customer requirements. The model of continuous deployment enables us to move fast with small iterations and base most of our decisions on data.
Rather than requiring a specific technology, we value experienced, versatile people with a broad range of projects and solutions under their belt. Also, you should like bad jokes.
