What we do
We are bringing the Snapchat experience to apps, starting with mobile games.
In everything we do, we strive to build the best possible product. Our goal is to combine simplicity and power to deliver a megacool experience. We believe that the more you challenge yourself, the more you learn. It’s an indisputable fact: being part of a start-up is a hell of a lot of work, but extremely rewarding and satisfying. You can read about all our quirks here.
Would you like to create something used by millions of people? Megacool is redefining the way we share game moments, by making it easy to capture and share GIFs with a link to the game.
We’re a small company looking for people who want to challenge themselves. You’ll be part of a technical team working from either San Francisco, USA or Oslo, Norway. Our stack is built with Node, Python, Postgres, Saltstack, Objective-C (iOS), Java (Android), C++ and Unity, so you’ll get an opportunity to work on a lot of different things. You will work closely with other developers.
What we offer
If you tolerate bad humor and get a kick out of seeing your code used by millions of people, come work with us!
Through our startup experiences, we've learned the importance of building a company culture for learning and transparency. We make sure to challenge each other and strive to give our best. We focus on team process and help each other to reach higher. We always ask ourselves: was this the best way to do this? Evaluation and open communication are core parts of our culture.
Opportunity to change and make a lasting impact on an industry
The gaming industry is made up of fantastic people who try to make a living giving you a highly engaging and fun experience. Unfortunately, it's really hard to break through and it's only getting harder. There's no more: "Make it and they will come!" With Megacool we are working on making a difference and making the tools that will even the playing field.
We could have written competitive salary, but that means very different things to different people. Rather we aim at paying you not too much, and not too little. Your salary shouldn't be a concern, but if you are looking for the high end of the market then this is not the place for you. Your motivation should be the ability to learn and view Megacool as an important stepping stone for your future.
We have allocated stocks options for future Megacool employees. The earlier you join, the bigger portion of the pool is available.
5 weeks vacation
We believe in effective work rather than crunching the most hours. We also know the importance of taking a proper break from reality to refuel. Where are you going on vacation next? And by the way, this is absolutely mandatory!
For the last two years, we've kicked off the new year skiing in Norway. We plan to make that a tradition (needs to happen three times, right?) and look forward to having you join us there. As we are a distributed team, we are also meeting up around the world a few times a year. Skype can only do so much...
Oh, for our SF team, we offer full medical and dental coverage! For the Norwegian team: don't worry. Your government has your back
Hugs and high fives
Whaaat? Yes, after check-in in the mornings we do a circle high five. When you leave the office in the evening, we give each other a good night hug. Read why here.
