Building Our SDK

Our team continuously strives to create engaging, innovative, and exciting game play for our players. We believe our platform is the future of competitive multiplayer, and we do everything in our power to make that future a reality. Are you an Apple fan? Do you love your Android phone? Either way, you ll quickly become comfortable working with both platforms here.

We spend most of our time working in a React Native stack, but we embrace the chance to dive into native technologies as well. You ll work with player chat, our friends system, game play video streaming, over-the-air deploys, real-time matchmaking and synchronous game play support. As an SDK team member, you ll be learning and working with many of these technologies, and related tech stacks.

Producing a cross platform SDK is a hard thing to do. Our team is excited by these challenges, and takes them head-on. When we come up against a difficult problem, or a new technology, we make it our mission to forge a path to success. We take pride in being able to plan, estimate, and deliver complex asks on time, and consider our work a reflection of ourselves.

Does this sound exciting? Do you want to push yourself to new heights? If you re bored when you re not being challenged, then we want to meet you!

  • Become an expert and mentor in our fully cross platform iOS/Android development environment.
  • Collaborate with teammates who care about building phenomenal products as much as you do.
  • Design, plan and implement player facing features designed and defined by our world-class Product team.

  • Deploy continuously-integrated over-the-air updates containing all the amazing work you ve built to thousands of games and millions of players, instantly.
  • Cultivate our diverse player base, currently over 18 million players, more than half of which are women.
