Role Description

Do you consider yourself as a full-stack engineer?

Have you shipped production code professionally, or have developed+deployed apps that are being used in the wild? Interested in gaming and to touch literally EVERYTHING? Come work with us on fun consumer-facing products and reinvent the gaming experience for hundreds of millions of people. We think you'll love it here!

Potential projects

  • 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 change all the time!

  • Improve 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

  • Build a UI library for common UI components

Other non-engineering projects

  • Talk to gamers with our community manager to identify new features that gamers want
  • Work with our designer on shiny UI or marketing collaterals
  • Help our data scientist with SQL queries, and extract insights
  • Decorate the office


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!

Company Culture

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.
