🤩 About the Role
Bunch is kind of like Nintendo or Sega. Just like Nintendo comes with Mario, or Sega comes with Sonic, we make our own games that are built into the app as well! Some of them like Mars Dash are already becoming hits in their own regard. At the same time, our users can play their favourite 3rd party games like Minecraft and Roblox as well.

We are looking for an amazing game developer with strong networking/multiplayer experience to help us make new games and make our existing games more awesome.

This is a unique opportunity for someone looking to join a small team working on a fast growing consumer product; and make an impact. We are a talented team that likes to move fast, we are on a mission to build a lasting internet company and we like to have fun along the way.

    • You'll help to set the standard for exemplary software architecture, making sure we write beautiful code.
    • You'll help ensure our networking code is up to snuff, so our multiplayer always works flawlessly.
    • You'll do R&D for experimental new features that explore what's possible with videochat inside games (think: audio/video filters, video capture/sharing, smile detection, speech detection, and more!)
    • <your ideas here>: We love new ideas, so bring them!

📐 Requirements:

    • 5 years of experience in software development
    • Have expertise in networking for multiplayer games, what's possible and what's optimal (i.e. you know what predict/rollback is 🤯)

    • A good grasp of software architecture, particularly in game development
    • Can collaborate with technical and non-technical staff, including designers
