Job description

CrazyGames, a fast-growing browser games platform, is looking for a remote Full-stack Typescript Software Engineer

You will be the main full-stack developer working on a complex responsive server-side rendered React application. The application has built-in internationalisation and high performance requirements. It is made with Typescript, Node.js, Next.js, and GraphQL. You will be working with our tech lead and front-end engineer on code used by up to 1 million people every day. 

In a typical day you might:

  • Improve our performance by running testing tools, experimenting, and diving into browser rendering specifics.
  • Build a complete new feature based on a 1 page specification (all the way from the database migration to the react component).
  • Propose and implement improvements to our build system and testing framework.

Key outcomes for the role:

  • Within 2 weeks you pick up and close your first issues independently.

  • Within 1 month, you can fully understand and give valuable feedback on complex Pull Requests.

  • Within 2 months, you achieve a development speed similar to the rest of our team.

  • Within 3 months, you execute an investigation task and have made a 1 page proposal on how to solve a complex technical problem.

  • Within 4 months you fully understand the codebase of the main project that you will be working on. The project is a complex responsive server-side rendered React application, with built-in internationalisation and high performance requirements.

  • Within 6 months, you fully understand the codebase of a secondary project.

  • Within 12 months, you re-organize and improve critical pieces of code.

What we offer:

  • 5 talented, skilled, and motivated colleagues

  • A modern tech stack: Node.js, React, TypeScript, GraphQL. Terraform infrastructure on AWS.

  • A lot of responsibility and freedom. We hire only experts and trust them to deliver excellent results.

  • Flexible working hours and location. The results are what count!

  • Visits to Leuven: you will visit our office in Leuven (the world’s capital of beer) a few times per year. We pay for flights and accommodation so you can have fun with the team.

  • The opportunity to play games and claim it's work.

Reach out if:

  • You are intelligent, efficient, and organized. You have an attention to detail.

  • You like open, efficient, and to-the-point communication and you have experience in working remotely.

  • You have a strong understanding of a wide range of technical topics (ranging from databases and UNIX to software engineering patterns and browser rendering).

  • You have experience with server-side rendered React applications and with Typescript.

  • You like diving into new things, open-source libraries, browser APIs, and more.
