Our team is looking for a new Software Developer to take a co-leadership role, working alongside our Product leaders on Adventure Capitalist to take ownership of the game’s technical solutions, exploring new systems and tools and implementing solutions that ensure performance is optimized and our game’s code and backend are in great shape.
You March to a Different Beat
You’re not looking for a job, you’re looking for a balance your leadership skills with the ability to have hand-on problem solving opportunities in our tools and systems.
You’re in the Driver’s Seat
As a Software Developer (Tech Lead), you’ve tackled interesting problems around infrastructure and scalability to help your teams deliver seamless games across multiple geographies that are optimized for performance and fun. You’ve suggested new ideas and even implemented a few new tools to help your teams work smarter and anticipate challenges down the road. You’ve also helped grow your team, mentor other developers and provide strategic leadership to your team.
Our Culture – Happy Life, Happy Hippo.
We care about making great games because we love games and are rewarded for our hard work in spades. Our benefits and working vibe encourage and allow you to live your dreams in Kelowna: an affordable, picturesque, and diverse city, only an hour flight from Vancouver, BC Canada.
Every Hippo is an entrepreneur. Here at Hyper Hippo you – yes, YOU – are the master of your destiny and the creative expert of your domain. Say goodbye to the days of meeting after meeting and embrace the chance to own and be accountable for your success. We enable our team to create beautiful and fun experiences that our global community love to play. We answer to our players, not shareholders and the entire studio is invested in the success of our games.
“Wait, what?! This isn’t how game studios operate!”
Well, we’re putting the creative power back in the hands of our team to help us explore, fail fast, and create amazing games. We are disruptive in our approach to management and assume that if we’ve hired you, YOU are the best person to lead and direct us within your area of expertise.
You’ll make decisions that you’ve never had an opportunity to make before and toggle between the bird’s eye view of helping grow a successful games studio and the granular details to ensure we’re keeping our community and team engaged and motivated.
When every person in the studio is accountable for their realm of expertise, something magical happens. We make great games. This is because we innovate (and fail) fast and support one another to be the best version of ourselves.
Welcome to Hyper Hippo.
We envision a world where our global community is always excited to play our next game.
We believe entrepreneurs will rally passionate teams to grow the best games.
At Hyper Hippo we really care about our players. Our first objective is to make really great games. But equally important is great customer service!
