Senior Front-end Developer
💪 The mission
We are redefining the future of gaming by bringing professionally-made games to the browser.
Why is it important?
Billions of people surf the web daily to entertain themselves, reading blogs, watching movies, listening to music and much more. But what they have not been able to do is play high quality games. If you want to play professionally-made games, you either need to download and install game clients on your computer, or reach to your mobile for a more accessible experience.
By enabling professionally-made games to be played in the browser, more people are able to enjoy great games, and game studios can find brand new audiences.
How are we different?
Pley makes gaming easier than watching YouTube by allowing games to be played in the browser. No downloads. No installs. No paywalls. Just play. The time it takes to start playing a game on Pley is less than the time it takes to finish reading this sentence. Don’t believe us? Just visit www.pley.com and enjoy zero-friction gaming.
Our mission is to bring down the barriers to gaming by providing creators with tools that make their games truly accessible, easily discoverable, and virally shareable - with games just one click away from billions of potential players.
🎮 The role
We are looking for a senior frontend developer to join our growing team and help us build the best games platform, both for users and game developers.
We are still a small team so you will have a strong impact in our company and engineering culture. We want to work with people who are curious and passionate about their craft.
For us, this is a long-term relationship, we believe our employees are our greatest assets and hope that you can grow with us, and have fun along the way :)
Our tech stack consists mainly of a GoLang backend and a React front-end. The backend is deployed in GCP using Kubernetes. Most of the inter-service communication is done through gRPC.
Develop and maintain the front-end of our platform.
Work closely with the design team providing them with feedback and proposing alternative solutions when required.
Evaluate and communicate the pros, cons, and costs of each potential solution or implementation.
Be proactive about necessary architectural changes and refactors.
Mentor junior developers.

🕹️ Work = Play
Work tasks include playing games ;)
We're situated right in the middle of the popular Stockholmsverken district on Södermalm. A lively place with restaurants and bars that, together with innovative and creative companies, create a unique meeting place that just continues to grow.
There are great commuting options with pendeltåg, subway (green and red lines), and blue buses (4 and 3) nearby.
We're a small crew with large ambitions and a lot of faith in our mission. We value playfulness and curiosity as much as courage and candour, and believe that the journey is at least as important as the goal.
When we're not hammering away to reach a milestone or overcome a challenge, we're known to goof around and dissect various subjects far beyond what's reasonable.
We're in this boat together and value the input of one another highly. No discipline is more important than the other and we strive to keep a flat organization with a high degree of transparency to help keep us all rowing toward the same goal.
Our guiding principles
- Focus on creating value, not extracting value.
- Quality over quantity.
- Keep it simple.
- Make it fun.
