- Autonomously take projects from vague design specs/prototypes to fully featured, production-ready web applications that will be used by a wide range of users

- Develop a world class, web based platform as well as specialised tooling, to help users understand and grow simulations that can contain billions of complex entities

- Enable users to manipulate persistent, simulated worlds in a real time environment

- Create a set of foundation features that will act as the basis of an interactive community offering feedback, iteration and sharing ideas

Skills & requirements
- Experience writing backend services in Go

- Experience writing single page WebApps in Javascript

- Experience working succesfully with Product teams and gathering requirements

- Able to work in cross-functional teams and iterate with different employees

- Interest in distributed cloud-based systems and associated technologies (Go, GRPC, Apache Thrift, Docker etc)
