Games Streaming – Software Engineer

Appland AB, Gothenburg, Sweden
July 2021

Do you want a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a global game streaming platform for 5G mobiles?

Do you want to work in a small tech team in central Gothenburg (and from home) for a public global mobile entertainment company with offices in India, Sweden, Canada, Spain and other countries?

Streaming games is interesting and complex because the player continuously interacts with the game and the stream must be adjusted in real-time without lag, which is not needed for music or movies.

We handle backend development, cloud and on-premise hosting, database design, network security, modifying Android emulators, big data, web frontend and much more.

Below are some tasks you might be involved in:

  • Develop and deploy petascale Edge Computing Services in the cloud and on-premise.
  • Create new global microservices in Node.js/Javascript running on AWS Lambda or dockerized on large autoscaling bare metal clusters.
  • New functionality in our React frontend.
  • Running, adapting and compiling Android and Android emulators.
  • Dynamically optimizing framerate, image compressions and resolution.
  • Implement big data analyzation and neural network prediction of user behavior in real time.

Sounds amazing! What skills are needed?

  • 3+ years of backend development (preferably Node.js).
  • 3+ years of experience with DevOps, Docker, Linux & AWS or other cloud providers.
  • A genuine interest in everything from software development to hardware to Linux kernel compilation.
  • We expect you to be eager to broaden your competence and learn a lot of new stuff each and every day!
