Our game backend platform is all about Java and scalability, supporting games like Candy Crush, which means handling many millions of requests per second. As our games and tech evolve we also have to scale our people and the team. This is where you come into play!
About us? Our teams are responsible for the heart of the game backend platform, a fine tuned, high performant Java framework and the foundation that run game backends at a vast scale serving millions of players.
We are now on a mission to transform and migrate from our on- premise infrastructure to Google Cloud Platform. We are redefining the core of our platform to leverage cloud technology and enable rapid innovation across all of King.

We are looking for candidates for multiple teams, each with different responsibilities of the platform, for example game development support and capabilities for persistent storage and event streaming.
