If you are interested in getting hands-on experience in developing scalable and effective API-driven microservices - then a position as a Working Student* on the Platform team is for you.

Please submit your application in English.

  • You assist the Platform team with code writing

  • You learn about the various processes that go together with the development of APIs in a clustered and orchestrated environment
  • You help improve our Kubernertes cluster
  • You evaluate and present findings on new software solutions (tooling, libraries, etc) 


Your skills

  • You have JAVA knowledge on an adequate level
  • You have basic knowledge of databases
  • You have a good idea about microservices and APIs
  • You can work with Ubuntu (or comparable distros)
  • You’re open, communicative, and enjoy engaging with others
  • You enjoy working in a team environment and are keen to learn more through practice
  • You enjoy getting stuck in and want to support us in our daily business


Your Gameforge setting

  • An international company awaits you! English is our company language, as employees from over 25 nations are part of our team
  • The future's hybrid! Together with your manager and team, you can arrange how you split your time working from home or at the office
  • Enthusiasm is in our DNA! Each and every one of us shares a passion for play
