Looking to hire unicorn programmer for Spry Fox

Hi everyone -- my company Spry Fox is looking to hire a senior-level engineer/developer. If you are not this person but have worked with someone you love and trust, let me know!

Job title
We don't really do titles here. Feel free to call yourself something amusing and/or impressive.

What we're looking for...
  • Senior level engineer (five to ten years of work experience, minimum.)
  • Can program both the front end and back end of an original online game - by themselves or as half a team of two
  • Has worked on multiple shipped games in the past
  • Very comfortable with frequent, rapid iteration (daily to weekly)
  • Excited about original, free to play games
  • Familiarity with Flash and Unity is a major plus but not a requirement. It's actually more important for whomever we hire to be flexible and not wedded to any given language, as we frequently find ourselves adjusting our tech to meet specific circumstances.
  • You must be a self-starter who can work effectively without being closely managed or prodded. This is a company for entrepreneurs, not worker bees.
  • Reliability and honesty are essential.  We love working with nice people. 
  • Location is not an issue; we all work remotely. But if you live in Seattle or the Bay Area, you'll get to have lunch with us pretty regularly. :-)
About us
Spry Fox is a successful developer of online games that have collectively reached over 30m people. Our titles include Steambirds, Triple Town, Realm of the Mad God and Panda Poet. We are passionate about two things: making great original games and bringing happiness to the world.  It is kind of a sweet gig.

take care,
Danc and David


  1. Don't meet any of the requirements but very glad to see you guys doing well and expanding. Keep it up!

  2. Awesome to see the hiring at Spry Fox! RotMG and Triple Town are two of my favorite games. Wish I was qualified for this spot! I'll be watching for a Junior level spot :D

    See you on G+ Daniel.
