Who are we?

We’re Pixaera, a gaming start-up with a mission: to empower people through play, by building immersive technology that transforms world-wide access to learning. Think Roblox for professional learning and collaboration. Today, our products save lives by making people safer at work, both physically and psychologically, but we’re not satisfied- we’re going to change the way people learn in all industries and environments.

We’re backed by leading venture capital firm LocalGlobe (the backers of Wise, Monzo, and Improbable) and gaming veterans (like the founders of Faceit) to help us change the way the world learns- forever.

Who are we looking for?

An experienced backend software engineer who is excited by the challenge of building products at the cutting-edge of technology. You will work closely with teams across the business to build our tech stack and ensure Pixaera has a strong foundation from which to grow.

You will be responsible for:

  • Working closely with the product management team to establish a roadmap

  • Building core functions and systems to support Pixaera's product goals

  • Owning code quality and ensuring the best practices are followed

  • Maintaining and improving our engineering processes and software

  • Working closely with the Game dev and front-end teams to provide support

Who are you?

A successful candidate will have the following skillsets and experience:

  • 4 or more years of solid backend experience

  • Experience with NestJS, PostgreSQL and AWS

  • Experience building and maintaining APIs, data structures & algorithms

  • Has worked in agile development and in complex team structures, including remote teams

  • Has clear communication skills- is able to break down complex issues and communicate to non-technical team members

  • Is highly motivated, owns tasks and takes initiative

  • Enjoys solving difficult problems and is constantly innovating and recommending solutions

  • A love of code, but also wants to be involved in working with a product team

  • A desire to help a startup scale from seed to acquisition/IPO

Gaming experience is not necessary, but gamers are more than welcome!

How do we support and benefit our employees?

  • Work from anywhere: Fully remote set-up, with 2x company-wide meetups per year to meet and bond with colleagues

  • Flexible working hours: as long as you deliver, we don’t mind when you work. Delivery is more important than face-time

  • £2k hardware stipend, so you can kit yourself out with all the equipment you need to succeed

  • 25 days company vacation allowance per year in addition to local public holidays. If there is a public holiday that you would rather work, let us know and you can swap it for another day in lieu

  • Competitive stock options

We are in the process of reviewing our company-wide benefits with our team, which will be rolled out in the coming months.
