Mobile App Developer (Android)

| Greater LA Area

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR . . .

Versus is looking for an Android developer to help us change the gaming industry. You’ll work with our game development partners to build, integrate, and customize the Versus in-game prizing platform. The Versus platform is a custom white-label solution allowing game developers and brand partners to offer unique, prize-based matches to their players. Playing games for real prizes will change how video games are played - and you’re going to help us do it.

We're a fast-growing team with a strong product focus. We value collaboration and creativity - every single engineer, product designer, and member of our team contributes to the roadmap of the company.


WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING . . .

As an integration engineer you will become an expert in our technology and a go-to resource for internal teams and Versus’ partners. You’ll work alongside our development partners to integrate Versus directly into their games. As an engineer working on custom integrations you will help define the future vision for developer focused tools, SDKs, libraries, and/or plugins to integrate Versus in to the games of our partners.

This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who loves working on games and gets excited about being on the bleeding edge of prize-based gaming. Your work will help our partners leverage Versus to maximize player engagement and make their games more fun.


WE NEED . . .

  • Strong programming, architecture, and development skills
  • Significant experience in Unity or Unreal and the ability to extend and customize the engine’s functionality
  • 3+ years professional experience with client-server development with REST or RPC based APIs and real time servers (TCP/UDP, Websockets)
  • A strong understanding of asynchronous and event based programming
  • Autonomy and self motivation with a ‘get it done’ attitude
  • A knowledge of how to build 2D UI systems in Unity uGUI or NGUI, Unreal UMG or similar
  • An excitement to help, teach, and mentor those around you
  • Great communication and team-work skills and experience collaborating with other developers via version control and bug tracking


WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE . . .

  • Experience with multiple programming languages, especially C++, Python or JavaScript
  • Experience working on building game servers and real-time multi-player systems
  • Knowledge of Flash and AS3
  • Proficiency with 3D tools, e.g. 3ds Max, Maya
  • Engine-level development or rendering pipeline development with OpenGL/Direct3D or similar

An Insider's view of Versus Systems

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office fosters creativity and individuality. While we all have our roles and tasks to accomplish, we celebrate each others differences, tastes, and hobbies.

We encourage personal and professional growth, as well as sharing of experiences, which in turn helps build camaraderie.

QA Analyst

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

At Versus, we're working on solving a problem that cuts both ways: gamers hate ads, and brands hate that gamers don't click their ads. By allowing people to compete for cool prizes, we give gamers a fun way to raise the stakes and help brands reach them in ways that aren't rage-inducing.

Lead Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Versus supports our career growth by encouraging us to pursue areas of interest where we want to learn and develop. Examples for me include paying for me to take a visual design course, pairing me with coworkers who can help me gain new skills like brand design, and sending me to conferences like the UX Summit.

Sr Product Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The open door is central to our worldview. The CEO's door is always open, as are all doors. Collaboration is natural due to diverse teams and real relationships with one another, not just formal processes. What would take countless weeks to resolve at other companies, I have seen resolved in mere moments, due to a synergy that is precious and rare.
