About Us 🚀
Immutable is a global technology company, powering the world of NFTs on Ethereum. We are on a mission to be the number one ecosystem for NFTs which empowers and rewards users. Founded in 2018, Immutable is one of the fastest Australian companies to hit unicorn status, having raised more than AUD $300M+ and a valuation of AUD $3.5 billion.
Our Immutable Engineering Team is the powerhouse behind the world's top gaming-focused NFT Trading Ecosystem. Our team builds user experiences that delightfully and readily meet the demands of planet-scale web3 games. We solve complex problems at the bleeding edge of technology and have tons of fun.
Immutable can hire engineers across the Asia Pacific region. We can conduct all interviews and onboarding remotely and pride ourselves on our global experience. You can work from our Immutable HQ in Sydney, or we will provide a WeWork all-access pass in any major city. We also offer relocation packages to Australia!
Our ambition is to make digital worlds real; we have incredible global growth plans as we strive to become the number one ecosystem for NFTs. 🚀
About The Role 🤔:
Immutable strives to bring a seamless gaming experience to web3 gamers in pursuit of true digital ownership of in-game assets. Alongside our recently released Immutable zkEVM chain, we have launched Checkout, a set of easily embeddable products that allows game developers to smoothly guide their players through the previously difficult flows of Swapping, Bridging, Onramping and Purchasing.
This role on the Commerce team is all about driving forward the first hit games launching on Immutable zkEVM. Our partner games will have the highest chance of success if their players’ purchasing and trading experiences are frictionless. We deliver and iterate on consumer-facing products such as Checkout and work closely with games to iterate on our offering and ensure they can launch their games with a high-quality Checkout experience.
We create truly innovative experiences, overcoming the technical hurdles native to Blockchain technologies and delivering a familiar purchasing experience. The problems we work on don’t have existing answers or competitors to look to for ideas. We build, measure, learn and iterate to ensure our products are the best in the market.
Immutable aims to help businesses scale their creation and trading of unique in-game assets. As Immutable helps companies to scale, we’re looking to scale, too! We are searching for passionate engineers who want to work on genuinely challenging problems in one of the most exciting spaces in the world right now.
This role presents an opportunity for individuals passionate about tackling high-impact technical challenges, leading innovation in blockchain applications, delivering world-class user experiences, and contributing to the development of scalable, secure blockchain-based systems.
