Backend Developer (m/f/d)

Hello! We’re Maschinen-Mensch, an independent game studio founded in 2014 in Berlin, Germany. We made Curious Expedition 1 & 2 and Codecks.io.

We are working on a new game IP set in imaginative caves of an alien world. This will be a cooperative multiplayer game made with Unreal Engine 5, where players interact both in shared social spaces hosted on AWS Gamelift dedicated servers, and via peer-to-peer gameplay sessions.

You will be part of a small, agile team in a creative environment. Together with the Technical Director, you will implement the backend systems required to support the multiplayer aspects of the game. You will also work with the design team to support their vision for the game’s progression systems. Required is that you have previous experience working as a Backend Developer, and that you enjoy problem-solving, working in a team, creating new worlds, and working self-sufficiently.

Your responsibilities:


Nice to have:

What we offer:

Working remotely is possible from anywhere within Germany. If you’re based in Berlin (or willing to relocate) that’s definitely a plus, so that we can work together in person. Our studio is located at Saftladen, an indie game collective and co-working space for game developers that we co-founded in 2015.

We particularly encourage applications from women, people with disabilities, people of colour, and other groups that are underrepresented throughout the game industry.

Earliest start date: August 2023
