Back-End Developer

About us

Playmore Games started when 2 geeks founded their own company and somehow got enough funding to hire 2 other geeks and one beautiful mermaid (who is writing this job ad). Now, with even more funding, we are able to expand and hire actually talented people.

We published our first board game, Race to the North Pole, in 2015, and amassed a wealth of knowledge and networks in the board games industry. Now we’re focusing our attention on making an amazing app that will help people find, learn, enhance, and play more games.

Dized

Dized is the revolutionary smartphone app that will change how people learn and play board games. No more studying before a game, you can now skip the rulebook and learn while playing. Dized also has a powerful rule lookup tool, a tool to help you set your games up, and more. We’re always cooking up cool features for the app!

The position

As a back-end developer you will be responsible for creating API’s together with our team. A big part of your job will be creating and documenting plans, and then building API’s according to that documentation. You should be familiar with SQL databases, mainly PostgreSQL. You should have expertise in Node.js, and little bit of Go-ness wouldn’t hurt. You might need to touch the front-end javascript code here and there, so willingness to pull that repository is a plus.

We also go to a lot of conventions and conferences around the world, and we try and take any team members that want to go with us. If travelling the world and expanding your network in the games industry sounds good, this job is definitely for you!

While we prefer someone who will be in our Helsinki office on a daily basis, remote applicants are welcome. You will have to be able to travel to the Helsinki office at least once a week.

We value your experience and contributions to projects more than your years of experience.

Requirements

  • Experience with SQL databases, mainly PostgreSQL
  • Experience with Node.js
  • Ability to understand requirements from different departments
  • Good English written and verbal skills
  • Ability to motivate yourself and take initiative

Bonus points

  • Experience with other Javascript frameworks
  • Experience working with or understanding of React
  • Knowledge of different board games
  • German, French, or Finnish language skills
