Description

Demonware, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Activision Inc., specializes in creating client- and server-side networking software for video games. We have worked with many publishers and games studios to create compelling online and multiplayer experiences for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, PC, and iPhone/iPad.

 

Some of the titles/franchises we have worked on include:

  • Call of Duty
  • Guitar Hero
  • DJ Hero
  • Tony Hawk: Ride
  • Blur

 

 

Demonware works very closely with website developers to produce feature-rich, player-stats-driven websites like http://hub.guitarhero.com/ and http://www.callofduty.com/. We have two openings in our Dublin, Ireland office for developers responsible for the webservices interface to the Demonware server backend.

 

 

Responsibilities of the web developer role include:

  • Designing and maintaining the Demonware webservices framework
  • Writing custom webservices to serve game data
  • Working closely with both game studio developers and website frontend developers

 

 

These are the qualities we look for in the ideal candidate:

  • Has a degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or equivalent program
  • Has excellent Python skills, especially experience with Django
  • Has experience with web application development, with focus on security and scalability
  • Has experience with XML-RPC- or REST-based webservices
  • Has experience with SQL and database design, specifically MySQL
  • Has experience with Linux/Unix
  • Has strong skills in statistics and analytics
  • Has a broad understanding of networking protocols, e.g. TCP, HTTP
  • Has initiative, and is able to complete complex tasks with minimal supervision

 

The ideal candidate may not have the complete list of bullet points mentioned above, but more generally speaking, we're looking for the same qualities that Joel Spolsky looks for: "smart, and get things done". For that reason, we welcome you to apply even if you're a new grad without any or much work experience (please attach your transcript with your application). Demonware is a team of exceptionally gifted people that, despite its small size, is able to accomplish a lot; we do this by making sure every individual plays a major role at Demonware.

 

 

If this job description sounds great to you, we look forward to meeting you.

 

Benefits include:
Excellent salary (DOE),
Medical plan
Pension contributions
Annual bonus plan

5 weeks vacation allowance annually, to start
Free games
