We deliver the networking and replication layers for both game client and server, integration with online platform services (e.g. PSN), authentication, matchmaking, inventory, store, server allocations, etc. The team works in close collaboration with our Online Infrastructure team, which designs and maintains the build and deployment environments for our services, servers and tools.

Our Technology:

For our services, we use industry-standard web technologies: Java, Spring, OpenAPI.

  • Work closely with the engineers in the Online Infrastructure team to ensure robustness, scalability and performance of our services;
  • Keep up to date with the Java world and introduce new technologies when they are relevant for Guerrilla.

  • You are comfortable working on a large codebase;
  • You have a firm grasp on software design and architecture, and enjoy writing code that is both maintainable and performant;
