At MAG we have a firm belief that the key to producing great games is teamwork and trust. We trust everyone in the company with the freedom to decide what team they want to work with and how they can most effectively contribute.
In turn, each team owns its respective game and decides on how best to proceed in development. This way, everyone at MAG feels valued and has the opportunity to work on the projects that they love within a positive environment.
In order to drive innovation within the company, we have monthly hackathons during which everyone in the company comes together to learn new things, work on side projects, develop game concepts, and/or build prototypes for new games. We believe that happy people with the freedom to flex their creativity to make great entertainment, and this is how we nicknamed ourselves The Good Times Factory. Making great games should be fun, and we encourage that!
The Role: Front-End Engineer (React)
Our teams here at MAG are growing and we are adding to our game portfolio. As we grow, we want to ensure that our teams are working in the most efficient way possible to streamline our processes and this is where you will help!
This role will work closely with our server team here at MAG. In this role you will be building and improving internal tools which will be used by various teams for administering, scheduling and configuring our games. These tools are currently being used by many employees as part of their daily work. For example; our monetization and live operations experts spend large parts of their day working with these tools.
Your challenge would be to re-design these tools to transform them into super user-friendly, easy to access and efficient programs. In this way, your work will impact all the teams here at MAG! You will work closely with a product manager who will support you in this ongoing project.
This role would suit an engineer who enjoys problem solving and who can get to grips with the needs of the various teams who will use these tools. You will enjoy the satisfaction brought by helping teams become quicker and more efficient through using your tools.
This role will sit within the server team, but as part of the 'tools group' you will collaborate with various different teams here at MAG.
