Lead Server Developer

  • Location: Dublin, Ireland
  • Salary/rate: €45,000 - €90,000
  • Date posted: 28/10/19
  • Job reference: 7520
  • Permanent

We're working with Ireland's largest Game Development studio; following the success of their game release earlier this year, they are now looking to expand the studio's technical capabilities. This role sits directly underneath the Server Technical Director, it is a Lead role where you'd be hands-on but also leading a small team of coders who are spread among numerous feature teams. I asked the CTO why someone should be interested in this role, he said a few things that stood out such as: The game has upwards of a quarter of a million Daily Average Users, the team uses the most up to date, open source technology and all their services are built in Python. Those three things alone should show to you that this is an interesting and challenge role, which should see you at the cutting edge of this discipline. 

To be considered for this role we'd ideally be looking for:

  • Recent background in Game Server development. Ideally for large scale MMO's
  • Broad knowledge of different game architectures
  • Solid programming skills in Python and another programming language (e.g. C#, Elixir, Java, C++)
  • Ability to write efficient low-latency and low-IO code
  • Experience working with Redis, ORMs and migration scripts
  • You work in a collaborative and inclusive way
  • Passion for technology and Games
