Senior Developer for Minecraft Realms

Stockholm, Stockholms län, Sweden · Realms

Description

Mojang AB is a games studio based in Stockholm, Sweden.

We were founded in 2009 by Markus “Notch” Persson. He’s also the creator of our best-selling game to date: Minecraft. Since then, we’ve released our second game, the card-collecting tactical battler Scrolls, and dabbled in publishing with Oxeye Game Studio’s awesome side-scrolling robo-blaster Cobalt. We’re developing more games too. You might hear more about those in the near future.

In 2014, Mojang was bought by Microsoft. The acquisition hasn’t changed much about our company - we still release and support our games on multiple platforms, including iOS, PlayStation and more, as well as Windows and Xbox. We plan to keep our independent spirit and we’ll continue to treat our community with the respect and honesty it deserves.

We’re currently scaling up our team with the expansion of our multiplayer service Minecraft Realms and are in need of skilled engineers. The service has traditionally only been provided for PC but is now being launched for several mobile platforms including, but not limited to iOS & Android served to a worldwide audience. Without going into too much jargon, our stack is a classic set-up built with Java, backed by MySQL and Redis hosted on AWS.

The team is relatively new and has ownership over the service. We’re looking for someone who wants to grow with it and participate in shaping its future. Considering you’re thinking of applying for a position here, you’re probably a friendly, talented person. Good luck with your application!
