Senior Full Stack Developer - Commerce

Global Publishing Platform · California, Texas, Washington, New York, New Jersey, New York
Department Global Publishing Platform
Employment Type Full-Time

Genvid is delivering a brand new form of entertainment combining the best of traditional storytelling with the immersion and interaction of video games. We call this category Massively Interactive Live Events (MILEs). 

Imagine you and a global community of other fans can influence the storyline of your favorite brands, characters and worlds? And it becomes official canon? Another unique aspect of MILEs is fans can choose whether to sit back and enjoy watching dramatic events unfold or lean-in and be critically participatory. And all of this happens live and with millions of other fans.  Current projects include Pac-Man Community on Facebook and the upcoming The Walking Dead: Last Mile.

Genvid Entertainment is also developing a global, scalable direct-to-consumer platform to publish MILEs via multiple platforms - from web browsers, mobile app stores to game consoles and connected TVs. This will allow us to publish globally and meet consumers on any device, wherever they might be. 

Our rapidly growing team is composed of leaders from entertainment, video games, and technology with offices around the world. Genvid is extremely diverse, forward thinking, creative, and collaborative. We solve thorny problems quickly, reinvent the rules when necessary, and take pride in blazing new trails. We operate in 5 states CA, NY, NJ, WA and TX.

Genvid has big ambitions, bold vision, and groundbreaking technology coupled with strong financial backing and partnerships with some of the most beloved franchises in the world. Are you ready to shape the future of entertainment? Join in. 

The Accounts & Commerce team, part of Genvid’s Global Publishing Platform, is hiring foundational team members to develop our commerce and payment management systems to monetize our future MILEs. As our Senior Fullstack Engineer for Commerce, your designs and code will handle billing, payment, virtual currency, provisioning, entitlement, risk, and fraud for millions of fans across consoles, mobile, web, PC, and wherever Genvid’s technology can reach.
