A self-driven Backend Programmer who prefers game backends efficient, secure and scalable?

Familiar with C# and .Net Core and MySQL RDS databases?

Who are we looking for?

Metacore is a team-first game company, looking for a self-driven Backend Programmer. Our journey has just begun, so you will have a great opportunity – and a great responsibility – in shaping how we go about backend programming.

As a backend programmer at Metacore, supporting and maintaining our server applications is your primary responsibility – yet not the only one. Our autonomous game teams have the full autonomy and responsibility on what to build, how to work and when to ship. From start to finish, game backends need to be represented, both matching and setting the standards for our games. You don’t have to know what it takes but you do thrive to find it out.

Naturally, we hope that you already have the technical skills, experience and ambition to program smoother game backends than anyone. But even more than that, we hope you share our passion for serving the desires of our players. In the end, that’s what Metacore is all about.

How do we work?

At Metacore, independence and responsibility go hand in hand. Our small, autonomous teams have full decision-making power over their games and full ownership of their – mostly excellent – results. But topping charts ain’t always smooth.

That’s why we dare to stumble. Failures keep us humble, teach important lessons and get us closer to success. We crave for constructive feedback. It’s the highest form of caring for each other, and for the games we build.

We also like hearing the feedback from our players. We’re great at assuming what could work but only players can prove our hypotheses to hold true. Falling in love with our own ideas is fine as long as players love them too.


Here's what your new role at Metacore looks like:

Responsibilities:

  • You design, implement, and test game backend functionality for games using C# and .Net Core
  • You drive feature implementation from design to deployment and monitoring
  • You create, maintain, and operate the game server cloud infrastructure
  • You make sure that game backends are efficient, secure, and scale well
  • You integrate other cloud services to game servers
  • You’ll be involved in designing client and backend communication protocols


Requirements:

  • You know how to build and operate scalable applications for a large mass of simultaneous users
  • Talking game architectures and technologies is your choice of smalltalk
  • You’re comfortable with debugging, profiling, and performance optimizations and have a couple of previous projects down your belt
  • Deploying and operating log collection management and monitoring systems is right down your alley
  • You’ve got strong C# programming skills
  • You understand what needs to be understood of MySQL RDS databases
  • You know your way around Kubernetes and AWS

When we harness our passion to serve the desires of players, chart-topping games will come out. Note the plural: we are not settling for a one-hit-wonder. We’re in this for the long haul – and hope to have you along from early on.
