Help redefine how users participate in games on their mobile devices.

Join a truly unique company within the game industry and it’s based right here in Belfast.

You would be joining yet another highly attractive start-up in the thriving digital sector in Northern Ireland.  The founders have a long track record of success in building technology businesses around the globe. They now aim to redefine how users play games on their mobile devices.

This company launched in 2018.  They currently have two senior developers in place, and they are currently recruiting for a Product Manager and a Lead JavaScript Developer.

The founders firmly believe an opportunity exists to fundamentally disrupt the User Gaming Experience on mobile devices which can be currently characterised as static, repetitive, boring and counter-intuitive. They have developed a specification for a new type of application targeting the Gaming Industry which has already been prototyped and end-user tested with very encouraging results in 2017. 


This is the first start-up in this space in Northern Ireland providing a unique opportunity to be truly disruptive within a very lucrative industry.

They have launched their first product in July which is currently on the App Store and they are recruiting  Lead JavaScript Developer who can take ownership of the development plans for future products. This is a hands-on position and you will need to implement the core development processes as well as tool adoption.


The focus of this  Lead JavaScript Developer job is the end-to-end development of the overall architecture of the platform.  You will also be representing the technical solution to clients and investors.


We are looking for a  Lead JavaScript Developer who has at least 5 years’ experience of platform development in a multi-tenant model.  You must be strong with JavaScript and the React and React Native frameworks. You must have worked in an Agile environment and have demonstrable experience in team leadership. It is important that you have some experience in mobile development, with Android or iOS.


The technology stack will include JavaScript (React and Reactive Native), Unity 2D, Firebase and AWS.

A highly competitive salary is on offer (£60k - £70k) per annum along with an equity stake in the business.


The first stages in the process is a coffee with one of the founders.  They will go into detail about the product, future plans, and more. This will give you a clear understanding of what is expected before progressing to a formal interview.

Simply give me a call/text/WhatsApp on 077 8988 6539 and we can start the conversation.  Anything that we discuss will be kept in the strictest confidence.
