Brainium - Software Engineer

Portland, OR, USA Req #95
Monday, December 4, 2023

Brainium, a PLAYSTUDIOS company, doesn't just make simple & beautiful mobile games, we dream about exceptional design and crafting wonderful experiences. We’re an eclectic group of creative problem solvers working together to have fun and make great things that delight millions of people around the world.

We’re careful & deliberate. We ask a lot of questions along the way. We iterate on our successes (and our failures) and strive to push the boundaries of quality in every aspect of our creations. We make sure that every interaction, animation, color, word, light, sound, and pixel in our games exists with intention.

We’re not rockstars or ninjas; we don’t crunch or glorify burnout. We’re just smart, dedicated, fun-loving, and take immense pride in our work. We believe in true work/life balance and don’t take ourselves too seriously. We see our responsibility to our players as a privilege and believe solving even the smallest problems can have big impacts.

If you read that and thought, “that feels a lot like me” – then we should talk. We love meeting people that are curious, inventive, detail-oriented, and excellent at what they do.
