Millions of players interact daily with Outplay’s cloud-based server infrastructure. While it is vital that our systems are always reliable and responsive, it is equally important that we continually develop new features to improve and expand upon the needs of the business. 

We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer with a passion for working on scalable, distributed cloud systems to join our back-end technology team.  

Someone at ease with Agile practices and looking forward to getting hands-on with our Python microservices infrastructure hosted in AWS, its extensive REST API, SQL and no-SQL databases, queues and analytics.
