WE’RE HIRING

You are itching to create the best in collaborative gaming experiences that keep players coming back. Join us in downtown Seattle and help us reinvent how games are made.

AS HUMANS, WE ARE...

  • Driven individuals that work well without management, and know that this freedom can be as challenging as it is liberating.

  • T-shaped teammates with deep knowledge in one field, and a broad range of experience in others.

  • Excellent communicators that share a deep mutual respect with their team in a highly collaborative work environment—who aren’t afraid to challenge ideas.

  • Fast-movers with an iterative mindset, valuing tangible outputs and daily play tests.


AS A COMPANY, STRAY BOMBAY IS...

  • Devoted to innovation and the future of games — and the future of game creation.

  • A flat organization dedicated to small tight-knit teams of talented friends. You are always part of the decision-making process.

  • Team first. Take care of the people and the games will flourish. And when the company does well, we all do well.


BENEFITS

  • HEALTH CARE
    Excellent medical, dental & vision benefits for employees & dependents

  • PROFIT SHARING & STOCK OPTIONS
    Everyone shares in the success of the company.

  • WORK AT WORK
    There is no expectation for you to be always available or checking your email during all hours. Work hard when you are in the office and relax when you're not!

  • FLEXIBLE HOURS
    Life doesn’t happen on a conveniently structured Monday to Friday schedule. Take the time you need, when you need it. And those days when you’ve got a cat on your lap and can’t come in? We get it. Work from home.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT STRAY BOMBAY

Who are we?

We are a team.

Great games are made through culture and process. We do things a little differently at Stray Bombay, with progressive profit sharing and a small team of passionate and equal developers who take co-operation seriously - from the games we make to how we make them. We want to help players play better together and unlock the best that co-operative games can offer.

We believe in hard work and passion… and balance. We know “work/life balance” isn’t just a tick box but an active pursuit that is different for everyone. And time away from work should feel like time away from work (not just working through email). That’s part of how we support each other and do our best work.

We also know that communication isn’t easy. We have to work at it. But it’s the ability to challenge each other that helps make awesome games and forge a strong team.

We don’t have all the answers (no one does!), just trying to do things differently and seek different perspectives.

CURRENT OPENINGS

Help us define and architect innovative, best-in-class co-operative multiplayer games at scale. You are passionate about architecting robust foundations we can keep building on, and awesome, player-centric features. In this role, you will be responsible for leading development on a suite of background services, including metrics, matchmaking, player profiles, in-game purchases, social infrastructure, and more, as well as deciding on server OS, hosting solutions, and preferred development language for backend services. 

Along the way, you’ll be helping to define the product direction and how we work alongside the rest of the team. 

(This probably looks like 5+ years experience in gameplay and gameplay systems, networking, and storage, but you tell us!)

Tools and talents of the trade

  • Architecting and managing dedicated servers  

  • High familiarity with public cloud providers (e.g. AWS, Azure) and their services. 

  • Building distributed, scalable systems that grow with our player base 

  • Maintaining live software services to support millions of daily users around the globe 

  • Fostering an engineering culture compatible with Continuous Delivery 

  • Development and deployment on both Windows and Linux 

  • Demonstrated ability to ship games at a high level of polish with high standards (and an eye to scope)  

  • Capable of owning critical live operations, including reliability, performance and availability  

  • Fluency in UE4 and C++, or related skills an asset 

Other stuff

  • Excited by a blank canvas (vs. an established code base)  

  • Enjoy leveling up those around you as you build out a robust foundation  

  • Self-driven creative problem solver with a team-first mentality 

  • ‘T-shaped’... you go deep in one or more areas, but can contribute to many across production and development  

Together we’re building a new studio and a new culture and we hope you’ll join us.
