About MSP

This vacancy is provided by Copenhagen Capacity.

MovieStarPlanet ApS is the company behind the games and social networks for kids aged 8-13 years - MovieStarPlanet, BooniePlanet and BlockStarPlanet. In the virtual worlds each user designs their own MovieStar avatar, BlockStar and Boonie, which are used to play the games, engage and have fun with other friends. In the games there is a wide spread of options to dress-up, chat with friends, design looks, making movies and scrapbooks, design clothes, building robots and play mini games.

Position

The core of our Social Network is friendship, fun and creativity. All our games have highly customizable avatars, playful and creative user generated content as well as friendships, chat and other social features. We also strive to make our games the safest social network on the planet.

Our new platform encapsulates all of these aspects, and then leaves the rest to the imagination. Our goal is to allow our feature teams to take the platform and build any new game that fits our network, without having to worry about compatibility to the core network.

In short, you will be enabling the creativity of our game teams, who in turn enable the creativity of millions of kids worldwide.

You will be part of a small Scrum team and be a central player, impacting our architecture and core decisions for the product.

With your unique insight into Unity, you will be able to work independently, but also to challenge, learn and collaborate with the other team members.

Being one of our Unity front runners you will also help mentor other Game Developers in their transition from Flash to Unity. As Senior Developer you will report to the Programming Domain Manager.

Your qualification
  • You have 5+ years’ experience building games using Unity
  • At least 5 years technical expertise coding in C++, C# or similar compiled languages
  • You hold a degree in Computer Science or a similar field of study within software development
  • Knowledge of Game Design Patterns and Unity best practices
  • Experience of collaborating in a SCRUM environment with minimal supervision
  • You have excellent communication skills
  • Your English skills are excellent - verbally and in writing
Will be a plus
  • Experience of memory management and optimization techniques
  • Experience with test-driven development
  • Applied knowledge of Network monitoring tools

You are self-motivated and enthusiastic, both when it comes to solving complex problems, learning about new technology, building a great solution and communicating your ideas. At the same time, you really like working with other brilliant developers and exchange ideas with your peers, always respecting the viewpoint of others.

You have a knack for explaining complex concepts in a simple way and can communicate smoothly across departments, with techs and non-techs alike.

You can foresee and identify issues, both local and across platforms, and can collaborate in working out their solutions. You always strive for the best quality, and take personal pride in developing a scalable, maintainable and stable platform that just rocks.

You love collaborating and troubleshooting with your team mates, and are willing to go an extra mile to help a team mate who is stuck with a tricky problem.

What we offer

Touch the lives of millions of kids every day, and be part of a fast-growing company, producing one of the most popular games and social networks in the world for kids.

Your colleagues are highly qualified, creative, and friendly people. We are ambitious and strive to develop and support the world’s most inspiring social network for kids by delivering safe digital entertainment for fun, creativity, and sharing. We believe in learning by doing and taking ownership of tasks and projects, so you will be given a lot of freedom and responsibility from day one!

We have around 20 nationalities working with us, which provides a vibrant atmosphere. We value diversity and believe this contributes to a greater variety of viewpoints, a broader range of individual talents and professional experience.

Our passion for people and the products make us an inspiring, fun, casual and challenging place to work and creates an environment where ideas can flourish.

‘Social’ is both what we do and who we are – so every week there is a social event going on ranging from Friday bars to casual game nights to running clubs. We have a canteen in the building so lunch is served just downstairs and we offer free fruit and healthy snacks daily. For our future foreign colleagues, it could be interesting to know that we offer 5 weeks of vacation for all nationalities (paid when earned), free child 1st sick day and the right to take up to 52 weeks of combined parental leave.

So, if you want to work with passionate colleagues who care for kids and work hard every day to give them the best platform to have fun with their friends then MovieStarPlanet is the right place for you.
