Fox Cub Games is leading development of a new wave of casual games - messenger games. The Facebook Canvas games and Mobile Games have been two waves. Messenger games are a rising third wave and we’re right at the start of that. The current tension between Facebook and Apple is symptomatic of a shift in game distribution, and all the messenger platforms are looking to move in. Our leadership team is experienced with both the viral growth (founding product managers at Zynga) and high ARPU monetization games (extensive casino game experience). We are also well connected with the top messenger platforms and are able to get access to unreleased features and distribution channels.
Our company operates entirely in the cloud, there is no physical office and no nationality boundaries. Everyone works from the comfort of their home. Smart people like you don’t belong in corporations with bureaucratic hierarchies. We want to work with people who are honest, direct and have a “go-get-it-done-attitude.”
Our team is looking for an experienced fullstack software engineer to help us build new games and a new game engine using Cocos Creator and Typescript.
