Platform Engineer

Summary

Beamable is reinventing how live games are built in Unity. Our goal is to eliminate all barriers to building, launching, and operating successful game businesses with low-code/no-code social, commerce, and content management features integrated into the Unity editor workflow.

Platform engineers own the distributed and highly available backend which powers games built on Beamable. This backend serves as the backbone for the managed services Beamable provides out of the box (e.g. inventory, tournaments, leaderboards, etc.), as well as for custom microservices game developers create to power novel features in their games.

We embrace our high-performance culture so we’re looking for a history of outstanding accomplishment and a willingness to lead in the face of ambiguity. If you like to think big, move fast and build cutting-edge solutions with outstanding colleagues, we’d like to talk with you.
