We are proud of what we have achieved so far. We have come a long way since Goodgame Studios was founded in 2009, now entertaining over 500 million players. We are leaders in gaming software, specializing in the free-to-play market. With lots of incredibly talented employees from more than 40 nations, we are among the largest German companies in the gaming industry.
With all relevant professions working together under one roof, our success is built on the enthusiasm and collaboration of a talented team. It is for this reason that we place a great deal of importance on a corporate culture that nurtures diversity, work-life balance and creativity. We always stick to our basic recruiting principle: Hire excellence! We believe that only the most talented recruits can create the best products. A culture of appreciation is a must for us - no matter what level you're at. Discover the world of gaming with us and help continue our story line. There are lots of exciting jobs to be unlocked!
Our aim is clear: We want to entertain millions of players around the world with our games, therefore we joined the Stillfront AB in 2018. Stillfront AB is a group of independent creators, publishers and distributors of digital games - with a vision to become the leading group of game creators and publishers.
Thanks to our sustainable growth strategy we are looking forward to many more years of amazing games. Our portfolio combines long-lived top international brands with very loyal players and new, innovative titles, all developed and published in-house. Be part of our next creation!
Work is not everything...
...but it’s a big part of our lives. To make the best out of it, we have a culture of appreciation and empowerment as well as a good life-work balance.
Some technologies we are using
We’re focused on one mission: to make our successful MMO games technologically fit for 2022 and beyond. (Imagine re-building an A320 while in the air).
Our legacy codebase has been around for a decade, keeping our players happy and engaged, but also outlasting the many hands that built it over the years. We respect it, but it comes with debt. We refactor it, trim it, or build around it. We run mission-critical functionality as serverless micro-services, all while feeding our huge Java monolith that just kept growing over the years, building for the future while respecting our past.
Clearly this isn’t for everyone. It’s for the daring, the creative, the out-of-the-box-thinkers, the experienced, the multi-linguists, the hungry, the curious, the foolish, the getting-sh*-done-ers.
Technology we use:
- Core Backend: Java 8, Java 11, Spring IoC
- Core Persistence: MySQL
- Serverless Backend: AWS Lambda (Node.js); SNS/SQS; API Gateway
- Modern Persistence: DynamoDB, Aurora Serverless, Elasticache
- Build & Deployment: Maven, Jenkins, Gitlab
- Testing: jUnit, Mockito, Mocha/Chai, JEST
- Monitoring: ELK; Grafana; AWS Cloudwatch
