Do you want millions of people around the world to play the HTML5 casual games you created? Do you want to empower your fellow developers to raise the bar of our technical achievements?

We invite you to join our team in the heart of Amsterdam as a Senior Game Developer, where your valuable experience and strong leadership traits will be right at home.

About us

CoolGames is a leading HTML5 game development company located in the center of Amsterdam. We started 10 years ago as a pioneer in developing games in HTML5. Now companies such as Facebook, Snapchat, Google and Zynga ask to work with us, bringing IPs such as Angry Birds, Monopoly and Battleship to Social platforms.

We are a company which believes it’s important to constantly improve and innovate as we strive to be the best. We foster an informal environment with enthusiastic and smart individuals from all over the world to design and create great casual games.

About you

You are proactive and thrive on making an impact on the games you work on and the colleagues you work with. You lead by example and write clean, readable and maintainable code. You have a knack for making things “fun”, and not just “functional”. You are open to feedback and still eager to learn. You embrace collaboration and have a ”you can count on me” attitude. You flourish in an environment where teamwork and communication are important.

As a Senior Game Developer you leverage your experience to coach your colleagues and elevate the technical hygiene of any project you are involved in. You have a deep understanding of architectural patterns and system design and can tackle complex technical design while being able to communicate about them to other developers. You don’t shy away from challenging the status quo to create a better environment for your colleagues.


The right candidate meets most of the following requirements:

  • At least 5 years of experience programming professionally;
  • Experience coaching and empowering fellow developers;
  • A passion for creating great games;
  • Expertise with Typescript and JavaScript is a plus;
  • Experience in game development is a strong plus (wether professionally, or a serious hobby project);
  • Experience with Agile/Scrum development practices;
  • Experience with version control tools (git is a plus);
  • Solid knowledge of development best practices.

If this resonates with you, we would be thrilled to welcome you as a part of our game development team. In this team, you will work closely with designers, artists, and our in-house quality assurance to create games that delight players globally.

Your responsibilities will include partaking in developing new titles, enhancing existing games, and contributing to the development and upkeep of our internal tools designed to streamline these processes for the team. Additionally as a Senior Developer, you will occupy a pivotal role within the team, encouraging technical discussions and solid decision making, safeguarding the quality of our code, coaching fellow developers, ensuring timely delivery, and continuously evolving and enforcing technical best practices.


CoolGames offers you a challenging job with a broad responsibility and an attractive compensation package:

  • An initial employment contract for one year;
  • Company pension plan and travel cost compensation;
  • Health care insurance compensation;
  • Sports allowance;
  • An environment that supports learning and professional growth
