Mayhem enables gamers and their communities to play together in customized formats like leagues, ladders, scrims, pugs, or tournaments. We're a fast-paced team that would love to talk to you! photo 1 photo 2 photo 3 photo 4

Why join us?

  • We are growing rapidly, and have line-of-sight to hitting massive adoption in 2020.

  • Tons of product and infrastructure challenges are arising from the scale that we're operating in, with new problems to solve every day.

  • We are backed by well-known investors like Accel Partners, Y Combinator, Afore Capital, NextGen VP, and South Park Commons.

Engineering team and processes

We are on a 1-week sprint cycle. We leverage CI/CD to deploy code whenever we need to, and employ automated testing to ensure quality. Everyone has a huge impact on the product and business, and is empowered to solve problems that matter. (Our latest teammate built our mobile site on his first day!) We use Github for source control, and all code goes through code review by at least one peer.

Technical Challenges
  • Auto-scaling when we have really spiky traffic (e.g. 50 -> 1000 containers within 3 minutes)
  • Managing multi-DB architecture with an ever-increasing # of DB connections
  • Faster CI/CD pipeline to speed up delivery
  • Hot-updating our desktop app from CI
  • Extract and reverse data from undocumented game APIs
  • Blockchain-inspired consensus algorithms to create true data between partial data of each gamer
Projects you might work on
  • Own all of our infrastructure setup, and implement best-practices with the goal of maximizing uptime, minimizing data-loss, and increasing our EC2 fleet usage efficiency.

  • Build new features in our Ruby on Rails GraphQL API server, and surface them via ReactJS in our Electron app. Exact features are changing every week, so any new project listed here will be outdated by the end of the week.

Working at

We're a tight bunch that are more interested in seeking the truth that figuring out who is right. We believe that moving fast is our number one competitive advantage, and heavily invest in tools to maintain quality while accelerating. We celebrate hard when something is worth celebrating for, and we crank even harder to make sure there is always something to celebrate. We take our jobs as seriously as we take our League MMRs, and are proud of our mission to help gamers like ourselves organize and build meaningful friendships.
