Web Developer (Fullstack) (m/f/d)

Sandbox Interactive is an ambitious Game Studio located in the heart of Berlin. Since 2012, we have been developing the online game „Albion Online“, which has already established itself as the first truly cross-platform MMO for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. With its sandbox nature, a player-driven economy, classless character customization as well as full-loot PvP fights as core features, it has had a successful year-and-a-half since its official launch in July 2017, further broadening its audience with a release on Steam in May 2018 and exploding into the mass market with its Free 2 Play release in April 2019.

Currently, we are looking for a full time web developer to support our web development team in the development of web services and website features. Albion’s website is a critical part of our business operations as we handle the entire publishing side of the game through its website. As such this position covers a wide range of tasks from integrating payment solutions to optimizing user experience to implementing out-of-game features extending the game experience of our players.

If you are confident in your ability to deliver high quality solutions in a wide variety of web based technologies and would love to bring those abilities to bear to deliver an exciting and unique online game experience, we would love to meet you!
