Software Engineer

Star Stable is growing rapidly, and with increasing complexity in our development infrastructure, we’re now in need of a Software Engineer to strengthen our Core team. You own the project you work on, with both the responsibility and the freedom in how to solve it. We work frequently in pairs; but not always. That part is largely up to you! A big challenge for us the coming year is to scale up our systems and to be able to handle ten times our current load. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to have a lot of influence and contribute in these areas.

What impact will you have?

By making our launcher and core backend services even better you'll play a huge role in the overall success of our game! We have high ambitions to become the best in continuous delivery and your knowledge is crucial on our journey towards that goal.

As a Software Engineer at Star Stable you will:
  • Work with our current tech stack which includes Python, Docker, Redis, RabbitMQ, Salt, Electron, AWS, Terraform, Kibana and New Relic
  • Explore new technologies, maintain and make changes to backend services as well as work on the launcher
  • Have the opportunity to work with both backend and frontend
  • Work (at times in pair with someone) with the whole life cycle of a task, e.g. understanding the problem, evaluate possible solutions, design according to target architecture, implement by coding and deployment of solution
  • Interact a lot with everyone in the organization
  • Mentor more junior team-members
  • Grow in your position as all devs rotate between tasks to learn and evolve in their role
  • Laugh together with a great team of diverse people. We often have lunch together and a fair amount of fika, too!
Who are you? We hope that you have at least a couple years of experience in some or all of the following areas:
  • Python
  • Back end frameworks (e.g CherryPy, Django, Flask or Tornado)
  • Docker
  • SQL
  • Modern JavaScript frameworks
  • Electron
  • Unix/Linux environments

We look for passion and skill; experience and genuine interest. We love what we do; you should too!

Where work meets play

Here are just a few of the many benefits you'll enjoy at Star Stable:

Positive work environment:
We love to laugh, high five our successes, and help each other out.  We promise you a fun and positive working environment where you can be yourself and fit right in.

Off-site events:
As much as we accomplish in the office, we know the importance of getting outside, too! That's why we frequently plan team outings to get out and explore the best that Stockholm has to offer us.

Health allowance:
Run for the hills! Heck, we'll even give you 5,000 SEK a year to get there.

Snacks on snacks on snacks. When hunger strikes, we've got you covered.

Fun, interactive workplace:
We have an entire section of the office dedicated to every gaming console imaginable, and it's all for you to enjoy!

Breakfast and fika:
It's a little easier to hop out of bed on Monday mornings when you know there's a nice breakfast waiting for you. To top that; we make Fridays so much sweeter just by adding some cake. These are regular occurrences here and ones that you're surely to love as much as we do!

Life comes at you quick, luckily we have a generous insurance package and pension so you can sleep at night knowing we've got your back.

Sweden is home to the second-highest concentration of video game studios per capita in the world, and we're at the center of it all!
