Love sports? Love computers? We have the job for you! Fantasy Moguls creates web-based sports simulation games and is looking to add an engineer.
We’re a small company with a great work environment. It’s a fun place to be where people actually enjoy coming into the office (as well as their work).
At Fantasy Moguls, we all contribute to the creative process in coming up with new game ideas and features. As a small shop, you’ll have exposure to everything from implementation to debugging, from AWS to source control to monitoring to load testing and everything in between. There’s no IT department here, just us – getting the job done and learning what we need in the process. It’s a great combination of challenges that will enhance your skill-set tremendously.
If you excel in server-side programming using Java and SQL, you’re in the right place. You’ll be given a task and expected to work independently, find what you need, and get it done. Candidates should (naturally) be proficient in Java and SQL. At least a year of experience with java-based web server development required. Knowledge of Spring, memcached and unit testing is a plus. An interest in (or even passion for!) sports will certainly help.
Position is full-time 40 hours per week. Salary Competitive, DOE.
Fantasy Moguls is a small social gaming company based in the Pioneer Square area of downtown
