About the Opening:
At PlayShifu, the small development team builds the core of the overall experience. Right from the foundation of Augmented Reality, to strong data driven app content customization APIs, they are the creators of magic!
The focus of the development team is on the mobile stack and supporting APIs. The team works closely with the design team and users. We have iOS and Android apps and there is an opportunity to build great things on both the platforms.

Current stack:
- AWS, lots of it - beanstalk, EC2, S3, Lambda, API gateway, RDS, CloudFront
- NodeJS
- Wordpress (PHP)
- Basics of front-end (HTML, JS)
- Tableau (analytics)

Out of the above, NodeJS is a must - you must have working experience of that. You must also know HTTP and how a website interacts with the server. Knowledge and/or working experience of progressive enhancement is a huge plus.
For new systems, you’re welcome to introduce any languages/frameworks/styles you want to. We plan to stick with AWS, though.
Bear in mind that it’s a startup so the work can be in a “grey area”, at times - not necessarily “back-end” and not pure “front-end” either. Depending on the situation, you should be prepared to write whatever system (either well-designed or ad-hoc) to get the current job done. Not all systems need to be “online and deployed” — you should be able to discern between what’s required to be “online” vs what’s a throwaway, one-time-required job.

Our games are played by more than 250k users all over the world. Some of the possible work you’ll do:
- APIs for the games - scoring APIs, data analytics APIs, security, auth, in-app purchases, etc.
- AI-driven game data engine - changing features and game levels based on the gameplay data
- Cleaning and slicing and dicing data analytics
- Customer-facing order management, communication (email and SMS), invoicing
- Company-internal analytics dashboard and order management tools

What We Are Looking For:
- 3+ yr of core backend systems and API development experience
- Remarkable aptitude to learn
- Nimble on feet

What We Offer:
- Opportunity to experiment with new technologies
- Competitive salary, equity in the company
- Ability to lead a team
- Central location, a full stocked kitchen
- No hierarchy, startup environment
