Software Engineer - Minecraft Launcher Front End

Reference: 16667 - Redmond, Washington, United States

At Mojang Studios, the creators of Minecraft, we are on a mission to build a better world through the power of play.

Why play? Well, play is at the heart of everything we do. It's the blocky backbone of our games, the core of our development philosophy, and even the origin of our name. From the relentless experimentation of our endlessly inspiring community to the classrooms where Minecraft has become an essential teaching tool, play is the bedrock of our existence.

We enable millions to create and play together, connect people across the globe, and foster a community that is among the most active and passionate in the world. Our community is global and incredibly diverse. When we are developing anything within our franchise, we keep this in mind. We want everyone to not only feel included in Minecraft, but also to see themselves in what we make. Our goal is for the Mojang Studios team to be as diverse as our community.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to help define the Launcher experience, and then design and implement that vision, to unify our community of players on PCs, and let them play our games under a single experience. Come help bring that experience to our players and have fun doing it!
