High Performance Hosting

Software Engineer – Backend

Akliz is a game server hosting company that believes in providing the best technology, while also providing community to our users and our employees alike. We are a small, friendly team that cringes at each other's dad jokes and enjoys each other's company ... most of the time ;). However, we have a large scale system with tens of thousands of game servers.

We're seeking an exceptionally talented software engineer with backend experience to bring people together. How, you might ask? By creating a highly intuitive control panel and game server platform that they will want to use for their game nights with friends, family and communities.

We don't use cookie cutter software because we want to innovate in the space. Rarely does an opportunity come along to change an industry forever, but this is one of those. You'll have the opportunity to gain experience in a wide breadth of technologies in our stack while also applying your development knowledge to something that makes people smile!

Key Responsibilities

You'll work with our team to design and write clean, well-designed, and tested software that delights our users. You need to be able to work independently and communicate in a remote setting over text and voice.
