Do you like to build tools that accelerate software development?
This is an exciting opportunity to integrate an agile and skilled Technology team. You will be creating cutting edge tools that support the development of our games, played by tens of millions of people.
Your primary responsibilities will be:
- Design and develop in-house tools to be used in our game development process

- Help shaping the future of our technology
We’re looking for a social, hard-working person who embraces teamwork and is passionate about their work.

- Previous experience within Software Development
- Good at Python scripting
- Familiar with any of C++, C# or Java
- Capable of prioritising your work with autonomy
- Very good written and spoken English
- Eager to learn and challenge yourself
The Client Technology team creates the foundation on top of which our client developers shape our Miniclip games.
Each team member has their own skillset, takes ownership for their work and does so with autonomy.
Nevertheless, everyone is in constant collaboration as areas intersect. We communicate a lot and help each other on a relaxed teamwork environment.
On this collaboration setup, you can expect contacting with some of the following technologies and processes [previous experience is not required]:
- iOS, Android and Unity development
- QA and Test Automation
- CI/CD tools, such as Jenkins
- Build tools, such as Gradle
To apply please submit your CV with your cover letter explaining why you want to be part of our team.
You will be working in our fashionable, open plan studio in Tagus Park (Oeiras, Portugal) with enthusiasts and professionals from the games industry. We like to maintain a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, with regular team building and social events (virtually, currently). We understand that being tied to a desk all day is not fun and that’s why there is a games area and fridge with complimentary drinks and fruit for all staff.
