You’re probably asking yourself “Why should I read all of this?”        
Well, are you looking to work with living legends, in a superb environment, on exciting projects and get a mind-blowing package at the same time? Then look no further! 

We are Videoslots, the world’s BIGGEST online casino!

We were born in 2011 as a result of a handful of entrepreneurs who not only had a knack for entertaining others but also an affinity with the iGaming industry. They teamed up and went about building an industry leader, setting the bar to an all-new high. Now in just ten years we now offer over 6,000 games from over 170 different game providers and we are set to keep on growing! Naturally, we can't do all of this as well as all the exciting things we have lined up for the years to follow without the living legends that make our business the success it is today.


You will play a crucial role in the development life-cycle while taking part in our exciting journey! 


What will you be doing?

As a Backend Developer, you will be working on our in-house projects: designing features, writing code, performing code reviews, solving problems, tracking down bugs, and delivering stable and well-written solutions. You will form part of a cross-functional development team where the team owns and drives the continuous improvement of our products using agile methodologies.

Our backend is powered by a LEMP stack, GraphQL and we rely on Vue.js for our frontend. We are inherently a curious team and are always on the lookout for new technologies that could potentially be incorporated into our stack.


You will:

  • Design and develop new Backend features
  • Perform functional requirements analysis
  • Write high-quality code and documentation
  • Work closely with other developers, QA, and product teams
  • Apply analytical skills and be committed to quality
  • Help track requests, issues, work progress, and any other changes using our project management tools
  • Provide estimates and technical documentation on request
  • Write code with performance, reliability, and maintainability in mind
  • Manage individual project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables
  • Work in collaboration with external partners when required
  • Manage code changes using our version control system
  • Perform code reviews

 

Who are you?

  • You have experience in a comparable software development role, and you master PHP as a programming language
  • You have good knowledge of REST or GraphQL web services
  • You are proficient with development in Linux environments
  • You care about software quality, you care about software engineering and you want to make a difference.
