Job Description

The world of Esports, to most, is a relatively new concept. However, for those non-spectators, it is a multi-faceted gaming experience streamed live for the masses around the world. Now combined with Blockchain technology, the landscape has drastically changed and you no longer have to be in the hot-seat to become an active participant.


The Company….

Founded in 2012, this company has always sought to change the way fans interact with their favourite sports and esports teams by providing an increased level of engagement. Using blockchain technology, they have transformed fans from passive spectators into active participants who democratically control the competitive arena they love to follow. Through their own utility token, fans will be able to enjoy a ‘fantasy esports’ experience with a single, fantastic caveat – that every voting decision will directly affect real-world esports teams and competitions. Their diverse team have been the driving force behind their success with one key concept in mind - creative thinking is at the heart of anything and everything that they do.


The Opportunity that is knocking…

Due to continued growth, this company is looking to recruit a backend guru to join their team of talented engineers. You will be part of the team responsible for building the systems that power their flagship platform. While this is an individual contributor role, as a valued member of an autonomous, cross-functional agile team, you will be involved in many aspects, helping to evolve existing architecture and implementing new features and functionality.  


Who they need…

Someone who is self-driven, eager to learn new things and has a proactive approach to work. You are passionate about either Esports or Blockchain (perhaps both) and you want to work with smart people who have fun building great things. You must have at least 3 years’

experience in hands-on coding and software design in backend development, more specifically with PHP & Symfony as well as relational SQL databases. You also have a good knowledge or aspirations to learn the following areas: system design, algorithm, design pattern, data structure, API & caching strategies.
