Live Ops Engineer

Happy Volcano is looking for a Backend Developer who is experienced in putting online services and “games as a service” live ops solutions into practice.

We would like to meet someone with experience and self-motivation, who can help us lift our game You Suck At Parking (and future projects) to the multiplayer behemoth we intend it to be.
This will involve creating load testing scenarios, measuring and optimizing how many players can be packed onto a server, setting up automated testing solutions, creating and optimizing in-game events and promotions, handling user generated content and developing monetization solutions, estimating the cost of infrastructure based on the number of users by location,...
If these are the things that get your blood flowing, we really want to talk to you!

We are excited about candidates who value efficiency, have a pragmatic approach to problem solving and an eagerness to get shit done. We're looking for a positive, active, and contributing team member with good communication skills.

Candidates from under-represented backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

You would be a great fit if...

  • You have worked on live games before
  • You know the ins and outs of live ops development
  • You have experience with CCU optimization
  • You know how to optimize infrastructure for location
  • You're not afraid to figure out budgetary consequences of various monetization scenarios
  • You have experience with multiplayer engines like Photon,...
  • You have experience with managing cloud infrastructures
  • You know how to set up online services like Playfab, Game Sparks,...
  • You have experience with CI/CD pipelines
  • You have experience using Unity

It would be even better if...

  • You have experience using task management tools (JIRA)
  • You have experience with GIT/Bitbucket version control
  • You're in a timezone roughly around GMT+1 (give or take a few hours)

What you'll get...

  • A full time position
  • An appropriate salary
  • A small team of friendly colleagues
  • A life outside the office, because seriously, work is not all that matters.
