Behaviour Interactive

The roleHeadquartered in Montreal, Behaviour has more than 1, employees worldwide with studios in Toronto (Behaviour Toronto), Seattle (Midwinter Entertainment), Rotterdam (Behaviour Rotterdam) and in the UK (Behaviour UK North & South).

This role is part of our business unit working on original games. These teams focus on the creation, development, and maintenance of Behaviour-owned IPs such as Dead by Daylight and Meet Your Maker and other unannounced titles in development.

We are looking for a senior full-stack programmer to join the core technologies (Core Tech) team. Core Tech is a team that develops a collection of backend and frontend services that support and enhance Behaviour games.

The services are very diverse, but all have in common that they consist of the underlying cloud systems that games like Dead by Daylight use to develop their own in-game features : matchmaking, player progression, in-game purchases, friends' system, messaging, are but a few examples.

There are more. To help us achieve our long-term vision with this technology, we are looking for a senior full-stack programmer to integrate the team and be accountable for the delivery of front-end and backend-end code for diverse features. In this role you will :

  • Deliver backend and frontend features. You will develop (design and code) new systems and refactor existing systems, working on a wide variety of features that are fast, secure, and scale well to millions of concurrent players;
  • Fix bugs. Core tech services involve features that are added or improved all the time. With the features come the bugs as well as other issues.
  • Bugs come in all shapes, forms, and priorities, from a simple fix, to a very hard to reproduce critical issue;
  • Optimize both performance and memory. Issues with slow performance or poor memory usage do occur. You will profile features, detect bottlenecks, and optimize them;
  • Test. You will write unit tests, functional tests, and load tests to ensure the robustness and the quality of the features you are working on;
  • Work with peers. You will work with fellow programmers, tech leads, and managers on the Core Tech team, as well as programmers and developers in other disciplines on game production teams or publishing teams.

Most features require working closely and collaborating with members of other teams.

What we're looking for :

  • This is a senior role. You need to have at least eight years of experience as a full-stack developer. Experience in the gaming-industry is a plus;
  • Versatility. You need to be a full-stack generalist who is comfortable working on a wide variety of features : low- and high-level code, features and bugs, frontend and backend;
  • Experience with databases. You need to be very comfortable with relational and non-relational database technologies like DynamoDB, Redis, MySQL, and others;
  • Experience with NodeJS, Typescript, web frameworks (React / Angular), and AWS services is a big plus;
  • You need to be solution-oriented and possess a collaborative spirit.
