Server Developer

We are looking for a Server Developer!

Is your desire to shape the future of mobile gaming evident from your previous body of work? Does your eye for technological detail and flawless design leave a trail of dropped jaws wherever you go? Is your understanding of the app development cycle – from idea generation to development to commercialization – on the nextest of levels?

Well, you’re in luck! We’re on a mission to grow our team behind the Drive Ahead! Portfolio game and we’re pretty sure we’re looking for You!

As a Server Developer you’ll play a key role in the design and development of our platform for physics-based online multiplayer games, as well as setting up and optimizing servers globally. Regardless of what project you’re working on, you can be sure that everything you ship will instantly reach millions of active fans.

We expect you to be a curious problem solver who enjoys learning something new every day, as well as sharing those learnings with your team. What we offer in return is a fun and creative working environment with top professionals, the opportunity to be part of leveling up our current games, and to play a part in creating our next hit!

And this is what we’re hoping you’ve already checked off your bucket list:

  • Design, implement, test, and deploy game backend functionality
  • Create and maintain the game server infrastructure
  • Maintain data analytics pipeline
  • Work with other developers, designers, and artists

And this is what we’re hoping you’ve already checked off your bucket list:

  • Minimum 5 years of server programming experience (C#, .Net Core)
  • Strong programming skills using C#
  • Experience with cloud platforms and related technologies (AWS, GCP, docker, kubernetes, helm, terraform)
  • Being comfortable with git
  • Strong skills with SQL databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL)
  • Experience with other programming languages and technologies (python, shell scripts)

Would be a plus:

  • Experience with CI/CD platforms (TeamCity)

The position is full-time and based smack dab in the coolest area of Helsinki – Teurastamo.

About Dodreams

We do More than Games. We Do Dreams.

We’re on a mission to craft shared moments of thrill. Our games offer outrageous fun with friends. They’re hobbies you master and share with pride in our video community. Disposable entertainment or competition against faceless strangers is simply not our thing.

We’re the makers of Drive Ahead! – the best of Head-to-Head Battlers. Our vision is to be the best in humor and fun. Buckle up and strap your helmet over your eyes to enter the gladiatorial racing arena. The brakes have been greased, your tank is full of rocket fuel, and your co-driver is… a cow.

This wacky premise of hitting friends on the head with a car has taken us to 150 million organic downloads. Thanks to our active community of 1.5 million fans, we’re speeding up. Our roadmap offers challenges in the most exciting areas of the industry: real-time online gaming, streaming, self-expression, and deep social meta.

Learning and impact are the foundations of our culture. We spend 3-4 days a month on individual and team rapid learning and hackathons. Reach your full potential in your craft, and ship games defining quality entertainment and how it’s done.

Founded in 2008, our goal is to have as much fun making games as playing them. We’re based in Helsinki, and it really is a blast working together. But we also support working remotely.

In addition to a competitive salary, we support setting up a home office if needed and offer a comprehensive health care plan, flexible working hours, and employee development programs and activities.
