WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR . . .

Versus is looking for an Android developer to help us change the gaming industry. You’ll work with our content partners to build, integrate, and customize our product suite. The Versus platform is a custom white-label solution allowing game developers and brand partners to offer unique, prize-based matches to their players. Engaging with entertainment content for real rewards is changing how the world consumes content - and you’re going to help us do it.

Our stack is based on Elixir. React and Redux power our frontend applications, and we have SDKs for iOS, Android, and Unity. You may find yourself working on any of the three: Kotlin (Android), Swift (iOS), and Unity.

We're a fast-growing team with a strong engineering culture. We value collaboration and creativity. Every engineer contributes to the overall development process, product design, and roadmap of the company.

Did we mention we have a Kickass MAME Cabinent awaiting our post-COVID return to the office?

 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.

We recognize the skills we require are across a variety of ecosystems. It should be noted that we don’t expect you to be a master of them all. We want to hear from you if you are either heavily weighted in one with some experience in the others, or the equivalent of a Swiss Army knife - proficient in a number of them, yet master of none.

This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who 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 . . .

WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE . . .

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.

Mike Spragg

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.

I've grown to consider issues holistically - not only from a gut feel, but also what data is most important to our internal stakeholders to move forward.
