Madbox is a mobile gaming company, creating and publishing its own games worldwide. Since 2018 Madbox has gathered more than 300 million players, still growing. We are looking for top talents with mad skills, a mad passion and a mad ambition to join us.

Madbox has very ambitious goals that would usually require gigantic hundreds-of-people teams. But with such teams, impact and responsibilities are diluted and, as these values are important to us, the bet we're making at Madbox is to build very powerful automation tools destined to our teams so that we maximise the impact of every Madboxer and achieve our ambitious goals.

This philosophy has been standing since the beginning of the adventure, especially in Game Automation. The idea of game Automation is to stick to the DRY principle : Don’t Repeat Yourself ! Everytime we code something that would tend to be re-used, we centralize it in a module.

In the past year, we’ve pushed forward the idea that every game developer at MadBox should contribute to the tech stack instead of having a dedicated team to it. This was the best way to make sure that the tools we write are actually used because the person needing them was the one writing them. That way we now have a stack of more than a hundred modules that our integrated in all our portfolio including remote settings, progression save, ads manager, analytics manager… to state the biggest ones.

However, we have noticed that, quite often, the modules that are core to our stack needed some changes to be applied and that this job couldn't be done by any game developer. Additionally, despite our hundred modules, there is still a whole panel of tools that we don’t have yet, and that we will need, to manage online games or live ops for example.

That’s why we’re now looking for a Senior Game Automation Developer. This person would be in charge of pushing forward the state of our stack by contributing to it themself but also guaranteeing the global coherence of it by reviewing its current state and any important contribution from our game developers. Of course, that person wouldn’t be the only one making reviews as we encourage every developer to do that. Finally, we’re expecting that person to hold a senior position as we’re looking for someone who knows the best practices in the market and that would be a great ally we can rely on as we enter the world of live Ops and online games.

What will you do?

  • Being the main engine behind the development of the core of our tech stack.
  • Reviewing contributions of other developers to the tech stack to guarantee global coherence.
  • Shaping our stack architecture: how things interact and work together.
  • Defining the best practices in terms of (module) development for the company (what are the common patterns to follow, what should or shouldn’t be done)
  • Document how modules should be integrated into the games.
  • Be ready to assist any game development team in smoothly solving the technical issues that might require your help.
