Server Side Software Engineer

We Want You

Synapse Games is dedicating to building fun, strategically deep, and socially engaging free-to-play games on both mobile and web.

We are a dedicated and fast-paced team that enjoys making games as much as playing them. We measure our efforts through results rather than hours worked, and value the importance of a work/life balance on top of offering competitive pay/benefits. As our portfolio and teams grow, our culture remains built around gaining knowledge through collaboration. From board game nights to role-playing campaigns, we all continue to learn from each other and grow.

As a Server Side Software Engineer with Synapse, you will work with PHP, MySQL, Memcached, and Redis among other technologies. Candidates should be smart, eager to learn, excellent communicators, and extremely tenacious.

You will be shipping code that impacts millions of players.
