The Company

Signify Technology are working with a small reputable gaming company based in the heart of London. They have several successful and profitable games with more to released in the next month or so. Our client reaches millions of users from all over the world and is looking for someone to help increase this even more.

Our client has created an amazing and very collaborative environment, where the founders are heavily involved in the culture of the company and all the fun activities they do outside of working hours. They have created learning clubs, taken trips abroad and to the theatre, board games nights and a very welcoming onboarding process.

They believe in creating a culture like this so that their employees feel happy and enjoy coming into work! With working in a small company like this, you will have a generous amount of autonomy and your voice will be heard with any opinions that you may have. All the teams work cross-functionally and are all able to have 4 days of personal development through the year with a generous budget for this too.

Although their environment is fun, all of the hard work that the team do has not gone unnoticed and have won many gaming and ‘best place to work’ awards.

So, if you would like to work for an award-winning company, please do get in touch! And they are also going to host one of our future Scala in the City events, so this would be a great time to join and be a part of an event that is well-known within the Scala community.

  • You will primarily be working in Scala with some Java. They are very open to someone that hasn’t used Scala in their workplace with a Java background or someone that has been working with Scala for a while.
  • You love what you do and you love technology!
