Job Title Online Services Developer
Skills Required Network / Online / Server
Job Description Our newly established Total War Arena team are looking for a skilled software engineer to become a key member of the group, working on a brand new and exciting F2P title using the world renowned Total War licence.

The successful applicant will be working in a close knit and adaptable team, dialoguing daily to ensure development is carried out as effectively as possible. An important portion of development will be in the Erlang language, so previous experience in this would be a huge bonus, though not essential as we are more than happy to develop skills in this language in the successful candidate, so a passion for self-development and improvement will be looked upon very favourably. This is a truly unique opportunity to join a hugely talented team, working on a world class entertainment project within a fun yet professional, non-corporate environment.

Key Responsibilities
  • Take ownership of certain aspects of the Total War Arena offering, including architecture and interface design, implementation, and testing.
  • Dialogue with core team on a regular basis to keep everyone aware of developments.
  • Offer implementation solutions for design-led requirements.
  • Create development breakdown and schedule in collaboration with producers and leads.
  • Drive test plan for areas of responsibility.
  • Analyse problems when arisen and suggest solutions for dealing with them.

Knowledge, Skills and Experience
  • Two or more years experience of working on a server-side large project with online databases and high-volume/highly concurrent traffic, including but not limited to an online video game.
  • Experience of working in both Windows and Linux environments.
  • Working knowledge of C++ would be an advantage.
  • Knowledge of Erlang a big plus.
  • Previous experience with a cloud service such as Amazon's AWS is a bonus.

Personal qualities
  • Self-motivated individual.
  • Eager to learn new technologies.
  • Interest in video games and their inner workings.
  • Methodical approach and good communication skills.
