With over 200 game studio partners and hundreds of thousands of matches played daily, Skillz is changing the gaming industry with the first mobile tournament platform featuring real cash prizes. Our technology enables a unique monetization method that enhances gameplay instead of interrupting it, increasing revenue by monetizing gamers in a way that aligns with their competitive nature. Now, game developers can enable a full-featured multiplayer gaming system with cash and point prizes, achievements, loyalty rewards and more with a simple 10 minute SDK integration.
We are venture-backed by well known venture capital firms including Atlas Venture and Nextview Ventures and growing rapidly. In our quest to make games better for both gamers and developers, we seek the right team members to join in our vision.
Our team is comprised of passionate, sharp, creative individuals who constantly seek out new challenges and knowledge. We come from diverse backgrounds, having funded and sold successful startups, built award-winning games, and worked at well known companies such as Google, Atari and ITA Software. We know how to build and scale disruptive technology companies, and we want your help!
You can find us playing video games in the office every Thursday night or discussing everything from hip-hop to Bitcoin to cutting-edge player matching algorithms over dinner. The rest of the time, we're working tirelessly to build a truly novel and groundbreaking company. We are creators and builders with a “do whatever it takes” mentality, and we’re building out our core team who will constitute the foundation on which monumental success will be built.
Who we’re looking for:
You love games and software, have side projects that you can't wait to show off and are looking for a place where your contributions matter. You take pride in doing things the “right” way and you’re excited to play a big role on a small team.
Pursuing a degree in CS or a related field
Sound understanding of OOP, algorithms, data structures and design patterns
Experience in modern static languages like Java/C++ (Python or Ruby is a plus)
Experience with databases and/or RESTful web APIs is a plus
Our office is located right downtown by the Boston Aquarium with T access in building. We're a small team where you’ll get startup equity and big company benefits. We’re aggressively hiring so drop us a line!
