Role description

In Helsinki, you will work on Unity Monetization platform, building high-throughput distributed systems on a scale you will not see in many other places. Essentially, you will be doing what Google does on the web (only you will be doing it in games). What’s more, your work will have a positive impact, helping game developers get paid for their work by powering ads in hundreds of thousands of games.

Our technology stack is built to create solid products that allow us to operate in a high-volume environment. We use Golang, Apache Kafka, Apache Cassandra, Kubernetes and many others selected to fit for purpose. Stability, quality, and robustness of code are requirements in our development environment, as our advertising network reaches millions of game players each day. Our teams are highly autonomous and take the lead and responsibility in designing and developing solutions that enable us to scale towards the future and meet the customer requirements. The model of continuous deployment with multiple deployments to production per day enables us to move fast with small iterations and base most of our decisions on data.

Responsibilities

  • Design, develop new services and improve our existing services
  • Ensure service scalability and reliability through effective code and data storage design
  • Ensure quality by supplying features with the right combination of unit, acceptance and end-to-end tests

Requirements

  • Solid experience in software development
  • Experience in taking initiatives and making decisions on how things are done
  • Ability to communicate clearly your ideas, solutions and discuss them with the team
  • Ability to design and reason about services in a distributed system, including communication patterns, data protocols and reliability
  • Understanding how different data storage engines and messaging systems work and what are their limitations
  • Quality-driven attitude
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills in English

Bonus Points

  • Experience with Golang is a huge plus, we use it as our primary language
  • Experience with Node.js is a plus, we have services which still use it
  • Experience with Kubernetes is a plus, we run our services on GKE
  • Experience with Terraform and Google Cloud Platform is a plus, we build and own our infrastructure
