Job Title Software Development Engineer
Job Description

The Job

You will work closely with artists and designers to make our games the best products they can be. You will design services used by a large number of concurrent users, and implement scalable, reliable and maintainable technologies for both client and server. You will have a major impact on the end product and see millions of people using what you create.

The Team

Engineers at ATA are involved in all aspects of the products we create. You will have the ability to influence the design and development of nearly everything that we build. You will be provided with challenging work to continuously improve and grow as we believe strongly in the continuous growth level of the human brain. Though we are language agnostic in our interview process some of the technologies we use include: Django (Python), Unity (C#), Java, and Objective-C.

Things You Will Work On:

  • Building new features in our games
  • Scaling our back-end systems to support millions of players
  • Using player-metrics to make decisions and improve the games

Who You Are:

  • You have an itch to make something people want and enjoy working on massive scale technical problems that reach a huge audience
  • You communicate your thoughts and ideas clearly in code and in writing
  • You have a solid knowledge and understanding of mobile application architecture

Tell Us if You:

  • Have worked on any cool side projects, games, open source projects, or anything else - show us what you've built!
  • Have participated (or placed in) any programming competitions
  • Have participated in (or won!) any hackathons
  • Have any experience working with Unity

While All our Apes are Different, to Thrive Here You Should:

  • Be self motivated, take pride in your work and enjoy huge amounts of ownership
  • Set aside your ego and have wonderful arguments with your coworkers in order to create something better than any one person could individually
  • Challenge your own assumptions and use data to make decisions whenever possible
  • Be passionate about teaching others what you know and continuing your own growth every day
  • Not be afraid to fail, you experiment and learn from your mistakes
