Plato is a fast growing social games platform made by the creators of Yahoo! Games and backed by early investors of WhatsApp. We currently have over 40 million players who spend more than 1 billion minutes in our app every month (growing mainly through word of mouth).
We love going against the grain and charting our own path to success. As an example, we’re making a stand to reject the current advertising industrial complex: https://platoteam.medium.com/killing-ads-e0e12073a923
We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic software engineer to join the games team at Plato. Develop new lightweight multiplayer/social games and extend/improve existing games, working with a group of senior game developers. You’ll be tasked with developing games from the ground up on our framework and libraries, including the engineering to build it, ensuring that it works correctly, and also making sure that it’s a fun, delightful thing to play.
As a engineer on the games team, you’ll be expected to work closely with senior engineering to get you started on projects, all the while becoming more independent and capable of self-direction.
