Kabam is looking for a Mobile Platform Engineer to work on a very experienced development team whose task it is to build and improve the platform.

You will be joining a team of very experienced Senior Engineerswho are all very open to discussing problems and helping each other over the difficult hurdles of coding for such large scale projects. Everyone gets to produce, test what's produced and ship what shows to be working and effective. When work is done, the team still enjoys spending time together, going to dinners and events.

Day to day:
What do you want a normal day to be like?

The team is largely self-directed so a "normal day" can be whatever each Engineer decides. There are daily standups but all other meeting are kept to a minimum. You'll be measured on your effectiveness, productivity and results. The team works hard to foster an environment where everyone is encouraged, and more importantly, allowed to improve.

Career Progression:
This role is flexible in level from mid-level to very senior depending on the experience of the candidate.
Mid-Level candidates will find an environment that fosters learning and development, while still giving breath to work and contribute on a daily basis. With continued contribution and growth of knowledge set, a mid-level candidate would find themselves moving into more complex projects with the potential for more reward and large scale responsibility.
Senior candidates will find a group of peers who are equally experienced and passionate, who want to share their ideas and are open to new creative mobile solutions. The scale with which Kabam operates will ensure constant learning and development. With so many new products shipped monthly, the motivated Senior candidate could define his/her own career path based on interest and ability.

Full Health, Dental, and Vision; 401k matching; commuter benefits; $250 gym reimbursement; $1000 per year educational stipend; daily catered lunches; tons of snacks, drinks, etc.

C.S. Degree or Equivalent

Years Experience:
Minimum 3+ years in Tech industry; Mobile Gaming industry preferred

MUST Have Skill Sets:
Experience with Mobile development is a must.

Proven working experience with backend systems engineering; Java, Ruby, and/or Scala preferred

At least some knowledge of security and performance optimization.

Test-driven development experience (and the desire to work in such an environment) is a plus.

Efficiency with SQL skills: including experience querying large, complex data sets.

Efficiency in writing and executing detailed test cases.

We will assist with relocation for the right candidate.

  • When asked, What is the one thing you wished a Kabam employee would have told you before you started working here, current Team members responded:
“Each person's experience at Kabam is very much what they make it, much more than any other company I've worked for.”

“Feel free to go and talk to anyone - I mean anyone - at the company and say hello and get to know them and what they do. You never know when someone else's work could interact or even help your own.”
