About the job

Who we are

Joyride Games is a full-stack platform for building and publishing web3-powered mobile game ecosystems. With more than 5MM players having already enjoyed Joyride’s initial titles (which have ranked consistently in the top ten blockchain-based games globally), its distribution platform and wallet infrastructure have one of the widest consumer reaches in web3.

Joyride’s premium Super Champs game franchise focuses on zany athletes competing in a range of super sports. Tennis Champs, the initial title in this franchise, is currently in beta with the holders of the Genesis collection of character avatar NFTs, which sold out within 30 seconds of launch.

We've spent decades building games on the edges of possibility at companies like Disney, Popcap, and Electronic Arts. Our team has built some of the biggest mobile games across platforms, entertaining over a billion people. These titles all earned enthusiastic and long-lived player communities that led to their commercial success.

Join us on this exciting journey as we build and power the next generation of mobile games together!
