At Lockwood, our vision is to bring people together through Avakin Life so they can play, share and socialise! Listed as one of Europe’s fastest growing tech companies by the FT for 2020 as well as winning numerous TIGA and other awards several years in a row, our journey’s only just begun. With great benefits including an employee share scheme, we’re a super destination for those who want to work on cutting edge social experiences in an environment that fosters communication and creativity. We’re always looking for talented people – if you are interested in helping us shape Avakin Life’s future, this is a great opportunity.

We're looking for someone to join a feature-focused team which works both in the backend and the client. If you're primarily a C# developer, and you also have experience with backend (Linux, C/C++, lua, distributed databases) and possibly also with Unity, then we would definitely like you to get in touch with us!


  • Working as part of a team, taking ownership of a C# client library which is part of a highly scalable communications system to provide messaging and processing services, becoming the primary point of contact for issues and work relating to it;
  • Working on the backend of that system, on a bleeding-edge database and application server framework, and alongside Unity client developers;
  • Understanding requirements and implementing changes and new features appropriately;
  • Creating integration tests, using version control competently and maintaining whatever minimal documentation is required for coworkers and the broader company to understand how our services work.


    • Minimum three years experience developing in C#, in an engineering capacity;
    • A scientific mindset and a passion for designing and developing sound, optimal, logical code;
    • A working knowledge of C/C++ and, ideally, debugging;
    • Two years experience working on backend systems for video games, gambling, mobile applications, or working on any other large-scale backend APIs;
    • Ability to work with Linux, troubleshoot operational issues on services under load and identify optimisation opportunities;

    Beneficial: Unity.
