Wooga is a European startup based in Berlin operating in the social game business.
Founded in 2009 it's already the third largest social game developer by size on Facebook just after titans like Zynga and EA.
Every day over 7 millions players play one of our games.
We have very interesting technical challenges to solve, some numbers from our live systems are 5 millions SQL + NoSQL queries per minute, 7000 http requests per second and a read/write balance close to 50/50.
Our first 100% erlang based game server was put in production 2 months ago and we want to expand our erlang usage and use the strength of erlang to bring new levels of interaction in social games.
We're ideally looking for someone who already has experience in building OTP applications and in running distributed systems.
Our environment is informal and flexible, each game is made in a small multidisciplinary team with typically 2 to 3 backend developers. We have a strict no nonsense policy, we believe in good test coverage and we have the freedom to decide how to develop, host, deploy and operate our systems.
We are frequent speakers at conferences, you can find slides from our talks here http://www.slideshare.net/wooga/tag/backend
If you don’t have erlang specific experience but you have a strong technical background and an interest for functional languages you’re also very welcome to apply.
Telecommute is not an option so you'll need to work in our nice office in the city center of Berlin.
