Job Title Game Programmer
Job Description

Mojiworks is a leader in games for Discord, a pioneer of next generation social games, and a 7x winner of’s Best Places To Work awards.

Since 2016 we’ve led the way in using modern social apps as places for a new type of game. Played in the online places where friends already hang out, our games are designed to strengthen friendships and start new ones through the joy of playing together.

Mojiworks is an online & remote company, with an administrative HQ in Guildford, UK - a renowned game industry hub. We’re distributed across locations, and highly collaborative using Slack text & video. We pride ourselves on our strong personal connections & community (which we put a lot of effort in to).

We believe that being online, rather than physically centralised, makes us the best team: we can have diverse talent from all over the world; better support individual working needs; and lift everyone up to have the same opportunity for impact & collaboration. 


We’re looking for an experienced Game Programmer to join us as we grow from our success with Chef Showdown on the Discord Activity platform, to develop brand new prosocial multiplayer games that will bring millions of players around the world together.

You’ll be immersed in a creative, encouraging, and highly collaborative environment where your voice will be heard. You’ll be involved in game design as well as coding, using feedback to build and iterate using a variety of technologies: our games run on the mobile & desktop web using the latest 3D tech.

We’ll appreciate you for your great collaboration as much as your coding skills. You’ll be responsible for creating game systems and features, and play a key part in deciding what our games should be. You’ll work on the entire lifecycle of projects, from prototyping to live operations.


  • Code features & systems across all aspects of our games & tools, with a focus on crafting wonderful experiences for players
  • Daily full-stack development in Typescript and PlayCanvas 3D engine & editor (we’ll train you if you don’t have experience) and other languages
  • Collaborate within a cross-discipline team to design & build the best game possible
  • Help other team members to problem solve & get the best out of the codebase


  • Demonstrable experience of full-stack game programming commensurate with your experience level
  • Experience of game engines & editors, such as Unity, Godot, Unreal, or PlayCanvas (which is what we use)
  • A strong desire to learn, and excitement to get your hands on new technologies and solve interesting problems
  • A love of collaborating, with the empathy and confidence required to give and take constructive feedback


  • Remote and flexible working culture 
  • Regular online socials and quarterly in-person onsites 
  • £/€3K annual working environment stipend 
  • £/€1k annual self-development budget 
  • £/€1k annual events budget 
  • Health insurance 
  • Share options 
  • Inclusive sick pay policy, including menopause and period 
  • Mental health support through Spill 
  • 25 days of annual paid time off 
  • Health club subsidy 
  • Individual financial coaching with Octopus 
  • Matched charity donations 

We work flexibly, but coordinate around Europe/Middle-East/Africa timezones.

We welcome applications from candidates that don’t have experience in our unusual tech stack but are excited to learn.
