C# Engineer - Work on a greenfield gaming related website at Scirra Ltd (London Borough of Wandsworth, UK)

Who Are We?

We are a successful 6 year old company that develops software that allows you to make your own games.  Construct 3 is our latest release of the software - the unique aspect of it being that it runs entirely in the browser (and we think we've nailed it!)

The previous version of Construct has around ~45,000 monthly active users, and the website has received in the region of 30,000,000 visits and 130,000,000 page views.  It's a very active website with a thriving community of game developers.

What You'll Be Doing

Our old website is and it has suffered for it's success - it wasn't written to scale.  We've taken the decision to launch Construct 3 on a new website,  The new website is launched, runs well and is built to scale.  The architecture is already developed and now we're looking at building new features for the new website and moving content over from to

Some of the more interesting features we're looking to get developed that you could be working on are:

  • Writing a new online arcade for our users to upload games to and play, along with extended features such as leader-board services

  • Redeveloping the asset store allowing users to sell and buy game related assets from each other

  • Other community based features such as a blogging platform, comments system

We often take a "let's do it ourselves" approach so we can have features of both the product and website working exactly how we want them to.  This allows us to develop with a shallow stack, and enjoy working on problems and challenges you might not get the chance to in other jobs.

We release early and often - it's not unusual for us to push out a few updates to the website on a single day.  We're not scared of breaking things and trying out new ideas.  It's rewarding to get feedback from our users - and they'll be honest with you as well!

You'll be working along side one of the founders of the company Tom (hello!).
