Senior Unity Developer - Backend (Illuvium Zero)
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 develop 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, blockchain game.
Illuvium Labs is an independent game development studio based in Sydney, Australia. We develop blockchain based games for the Illuvium DAO. We have developed a strong culture of independence with our team, preferring candidates who can articulate their own vision and goals. We operate almost entirely remotely so each team member designs their own hours and work schedule. In the end all that matters is the delivered product. We hire based on people’s abilities to adapt and change quickly, valuing underlying core abilities above specific skill sets.
