ABOUT YOU (AS A HUMAN)
Fuelled by a growth mindset, you’re resourceful and curious—a problem-solver at heart. While you may have your head in code strings much of the time, you are determined to use your growing experience to help build a better world. Through your life experiences, you fully appreciate diversity of thinking and believe that others have different, equally important areas of genius to contribute. A passionate player of games, you’re obsessed with the latest mobile gaming best practices and trends. You may, from time to time, think about how amazing trees are.
ABOUT YOU (AS A SOFTWARE ENGINEER)
You are a curious and ambitious engineer on a mission to create memorable experiences. You enjoy being part of a dynamic team and you communicate questions, issues, progress, and wins. Colleagues would say you are confident in your gift for solving problems in a start-up environment and you can give and receive constructive feedback. Ideally you’ve worked on the back end of a large scale Mobile, PC, or Console game. With strong experience in back-end gameplay systems, you’re able to adapt your coding style to embrace shared coding standards. You write clean, simple, well-documented code from design requirements; code that’s easy to read, test, and debug. You are able to independently design and code web applications, including frontend and backend systems. You care deeply about quality and always consider solutions through a lens of performance, reliability, testability, security, and scalability.
3+ years building products across the stack, with a firm understanding of web frameworks, REST APIs, databases, and cloud-based backend systems.
Excellent debugging and optimization skills
Writing efficient, scalable, and testable code
Strong orientation towards unit/integration testing
Interest and ability working independently and collaboratively in a dynamic team setting.
The ability to effectively communicate with technical and non-technical team members.
A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related professional development experience.
Familiarity with software design patterns and data structures.
CONSIDERED A PLUS TO HAVE:
Programming experience with React, Typescript, and Promises
Experience with cloud-based services (Firebase, PlayFab, GCP, AWS, etc.)
Some exposure working in Agile, Kanban, or similar project management methodologies
ABOUT THE JOB
You’ll work as a part of our engineering team with a diversely talented production team to scale up our game-related back-end systems and admin tools. You’ll collaborate with other developers to build backend systems, review and help on their code, and stay current on new coding environments and programming standards. You will assume responsibility for new projects to build internal tools and processes designed to support millions of game players.
We are a fully remote team, and we find it most productive if you are located within North American time zones (PST to EST) in order to attend and/or lead our team’s Sprint Ceremonies that land within the PST timezone.
ABOUT THE CARBON COUNTS TEAM
Biodiversity is the word for the varied animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and other life forms that are connected and intertwined within an ecosystem. The more biodiversity, the stronger the ecosystem. We’re obsessed with the idea of biodiversity—for the planet, and for the team! Currently, we’re a small, mighty team with different, varied roots in different realms. Some of us have come from entertainment (think Disney). Some from game dev (think EA, Adventure Capitalist, Kabam, Activision, and Club Penguin). Some from business (think tech start-ups and Lululemon). Some from tech (think Google). Some are in conservation (think Rare.org). All of us are inspired by the possibility of changing the world, one moment, one laugh, one step, one community—one tree at a time. We know our players will come from all walks of life—and so do we. We’re hiring exceptional people from a wide variety of backgrounds—it’s the right thing to do and it makes Carbon Counts stronger. If you share our values and love for trees, animals, and nature, please consider applying!
