You should be someone who builds clean, well-documented modular code and is comfortable in a leadership role. Do you love smooth animation, physics engines, and game theory? If so, this may be the right place for you.

For this job we need you to be local (that means the NYC area).

iOS Engineer | Preferred:

  • Active contributions to open-source projects.

  • An environment where all ideas are given consideration.
