Job Description

Contribute to the design, development and technical delivery of the Illuvium Zero mobile game. The ideal candidate would be someone who can make significant contributions to both the design and the development of a backend for a Unity game using AWS Serverless (Lambda, DynamoDB, SQS, etc).

You would design both client side unity components, and server side components, and ideally develop shared libraries used between both (as we use C# in our serverless backend). Take this chance to leave a major stamp on an exciting, first of its kind, crypto game.
