Everything is designed from their perspective. We celebrate the diversity and quirkiness of their world and give them the freedom to play in ways that only they can dream up.

The Partnership Development team, based in Stockholm, work with bringing Toca Boca experiences to kids outside Apple, Google Play and Amazon marketplaces. The Stockholm Development team work closely with and are part of the wider Toca Boca Partnership team based in San Francisco.

Role overview

The Stockholm Partnership Development team require an additional developer with a great eye for the Android platform and interest in exploring other mobile and handheld platforms.

In this role you will be responsible for (Android) native and Unity specific development for all past and future Toca Boca apps and for bringing them to our partner platforms. This will include creative problem solving to work around technical specification challenges related to non-Apple, Google Play and Amazon platforms, as well as gameplay thinking and gameplay adaption/ creation to add Partner specific or bespoke characteristics depending on the intended partner /platform.

Working with and helping to mentor a Junior Android/ Unity Developer in the Partnership Development team will also be a key part of the role, and a way to ensure that we are able to scale up the ambition, creativity and output of the Partnership Development team moving forward. This will be in terms of types of Partnerships that can be offered, how much adaption/bespoke gameplay from original Apple, Google Play and Amazon versions of games can be offered, and the volume of Partners we can deliver to.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of growing and strengthening a core part of the Toca Boca delivery to our end users, wherever kids may experience our games.

  • Enjoys and has the ability to travel internationally, with a specific need to meet with the whole Partnership team and with international clients across the globe (approx 2-3 travel possibilities per year).
  • Is a strong problem solver and have a willingness to take initiative in unclear situations, as the nature of different partnerships will require different creative solutions that may not have been established or exist yet.

 

What you will be doing:

  • Creating a solid, independent technical infrastructure to support the development and deployment of products to partners.
  • Mapping out technical requirements for new business deals and deliver new builds along with these requirements.
  • Together with your colleagues ensure our great games are adapted to the Partnership platforms in the best possible way, including adaption of gameplay for partners specific deals.
  • Leading all technical evaluation of existing and upcoming platform initiatives.
  • Managing and mentoring more junior developers.
  • Maintaining communication with multiple teams across multiple time zones.

 

It’s also beneficial if you have experience with:

  • Mobile/tablet applications (Native or Wrapper application – non HTML5) in the public application stores outside of Google Play and Amazon.
  • Porting android mobile games to other android ecosystems, for example, android tv, consoles etc.
  • Experience of test automation for Android.
