A bit about us:
We are on a mission to disrupt the gaming industry and to build the future of play-and-earn. Every year players are spending billions of dollars on digital items that they don’t actually own. We see this as a massive opportunity for disruption by introducing NFT games which are play-and-earn, where someone can play a game for fun while also earning digital assets.
The journey still needs some work. Currently, transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Ethereum can process fewer than 5 NFTs per second for the whole world combined.
To solve this problem, we have created a first-of-its-kind exchange, Immutable X. This is the first layer-2 scaling solution for NFTs on Ethereum, with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and zero gas fees, without compromising user custody.
A bit about the role:
As a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer, you will work in a high performing and passionate team focused on taking our flagship game asset exchange "Immutable X" to as many players and gamers as possible. You'll help them build innovative growth features and incentive schemes to maximise this expansion. You'll have a lot of flexibility in terms of tools, technology and architecture: most of your goals will be product-driven rather than tech-driven.
You will play an integral part on the Immutable X product, personally working on both frontend and backend features, but you will also be involved in product design and development. You'll help the team estimate, prioritise and scope features, and contribute to product discussions at all stages of development.
