About Pocket Worlds
Sitting at the intersection of social networking and gaming, we empower creativity and connection in a digital world. Our mission is to build deep, rich virtual worlds where everyone belongs.
We have been working towards this mission for a decade. We are the creators of Highrise, the first virtual world on mobile, which has seen extraordinary growth over the last few years and now boasts over 20 million users across iOS and Android. Every day, the citizens of Highrise come together to hangout, explore, create, collect, and trade in our metaverse, and we are on the precipice of making history once again with our expansion into Highrise World.
Pocket Worlds is currently seeking a senior software engineer who is not only skilled in coding, but also loves innovation, is approachable, and can work well with others. The ideal candidate should be comfortable working with team members located around the world and communicating through various channels such as Slack, or other tools (sorry, no carrier pigeons!).
If you're the kind of person who thinks that code and architecture can be beautiful, we want you! We want someone who can build amazing apps that make people smile, while still adhering to best practices and writing clean, maintainable code.
You should be able to work independently and be self-motivated because we won't be there to hold your hand (but we'll send virtual hugs whenever you need them). And since this is a remote position, you'll need to be comfortable managing your time and staying focused.
So, If you're a software engineer who is not afraid to get your hands dirty, and you want to work for a company that greatly values both hard work and passion, apply now! We can't wait to meet you.
Here are the skills and qualities we're looking for in our ideal candidate:
- You have exceptional C# design and programming skills with at least 10 years of software programming experience.
- You must also have at least 4 years of experience in programming with the Unity engine.
- You have experience architecting, designing, and implementing a wide array of software products.
- You have experience supporting mission-critical applications at scale.
- You have experience developing mobile apps for both iOS or Android.
- You have built any side projects or games outside of work or made significant open-source contributions.
- You have experience programming in Lua.
Imagine a virtual world where socializing and gaming collide to create a world of infinite possibilities. That's Pocket Worlds. We've been sitting at the intersection of social networking and gaming for some time now, and we're here to inject some play into the digital world.
Over the past 10 years, we've been building immersive virtual worlds that provide a sense of belonging to all who enter. We've got over 20 million Highrise citizens, and every day they come together to play, build, explore, and trade with each other.
As we continue to build and expand our platform, we remain focused on our mission of creating deep, rich virtual worlds where everyone belongs. As part of our mission, we've been actively developing the infrastructure to support user-generated content. This empowers our players to craft their own worlds and brings them one step closer to realizing their visions.
We believe that the future of virtual worlds is bright, and we're excited to be at the forefront of this industry. As we continue to grow and expand our platform, we're looking for talented individuals to join us on this journey of innovation and creativity. If you're passionate about building virtual worlds that bring people together and push the boundaries of what's possible, we want you on our team!
