A bit about us:

$100bn was spent on in-game items last year. $0 went to players. We believe that games should provide more than just entertainment value for the time and money invested. At Immutable, we are combining blockchain technology and gaming expertise to solve this problem. Specifically, blockchain allows players to truly own their in-game items and to sell items for real money. Our goal is to create a technology platform where developers can easily integrate blockchain into their games. 

We are looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our growing team. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to Immutable's mission of making digital worlds real by working on our very own blockchain game: Gods Unchained. 

You will be a curious skilled software engineer who demonstrates initiative to dig deep and find creative ways to use value-oriented tech. You enjoy working with teams and have strong communication skills to communicate effectively and can comfortably deal with ambiguity. 

We don’t need you to know anything about blockchain or game development: we have in-house experts who can teach you everything you need to know. We do however need a Senior Frontend Engineer that is able to work with our pre-existing stack, built with Angular 10+, SASS and Web Components.

  • Lead and deliver multiple projects within the Gods Unchained team
  • Help estimate and prioritise proposed features
