Job description
Summary:
We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to work with the development of our core backend service and provide leadership and mentoring within the backend team.

The Position:
In this role you will be tasked with designing and developing our backend services as well as supporting our customers when they need technical help. You will be working with a team of Senior Backend Developers, participating in planning and implementing long term technical roadmaps.

Our backend services are implemented in Go and PHP, where the PHP parts are considered legacy and will be replaced with Go over time. Our storage solutions vary from MySQL, over AWS Athena to Redis, and asynchronous jobs run with AWS Lambda. Our frontend is written in React and NextJS with Tailwind CSS. You will be expected to be able to implement interfaces for features you develop in this frontend too.

As we are a small team you will be working closely with the CTO and other Senior Engineers to define the scope of work before executing the planned tasks alone. Because of this we are looking for a candidate who is a strong communicator, works well in a remote setting, and can solve technical problems without much guidance. This role can eventually evolve to a Team Lead within the LootLocker technical organization as we grow the company.

Required Qualifications:
Minimum 5+ years of professional backend development experience
Strong knowledge of Go and TypeScript/JavaScript
Working knowledge of PHP
Extensive experience from storage technologies such as MySQL, NoSQL and Redis
A great sense of technical excellence, functionality, and problem-solving
Excellent verbal and written English

Bonus Qualifications:
Experience with AWS services such as Lambda, EC2, Fargate, RDS and other services.
Experience from the gaming industry
Knowledge of C# and / or C++
Previous work with high availability solutions
Passionate about gaming

About LootLocker:
LootLocker is the game backend that unlocks cross-platform game services for all types of developers. As a company, we are passionate about helping indie and small game development teams succeed in making the best games possible. We believe that the most influential and groundbreaking games are made by small, independent developers; but the playing field is not level and these studios need access to the same firepower as the biggest AAA titles in order to compete. LootLocker aims to provide all the tools necessary to run a successful game.

LootLocker was founded pre-pandemic as a remote-first company, as we believe that efficiency is created through trust, focus, and most importantly a healthy work-life balance.

Working at LootLocker:
We strongly believe that a certain quality of life results in efficient and high quality work. Therefore we aim to provide a salary, (description) remote work environment, time to exercise, and down time as integral elements of a balanced life.

At LootLocker we provide a competitive salary (for a start-up), investments into your home work setup, and flexible working hours to ensure you are able to focus when you feel productive, and exercise or rest when needed.

We also provide:
30 days of paid vacation
Employee stock options
Free Fridays
Monthly game purchases
Biannual in-person company get togethers
