Based in Shoreditch, Mind Candy is a major player in the rapidly expanding London tech scene. Our hero brand is Moshi Monsters, one of the world’s fastest-growing online games for kids, with 98 million sign-ups and counting. But the Moshi phenomenon is not confined to the wildly successful online game. We’re busy disrupting the world of music, video, toys, film, cartoons, books and much more. Moshi games have also invaded the mobile and tablet space with the launch of Moshi Monsters Village and Moshi Karts, but Moshi is just the starting point – we’ve got several new entertainment projects bubbling away that need smart, creative minds to spark them into life.
We’re always on the lookout for ambitious and creative people to join our team. But isn’t everyone? Potential Mind Candies need something extra. A quirky edge, a positive attitude and a driving passion to bring something unique to our party. It’s hard to define but you’ll know if you’ve got it. And so will we. Think you can measure up? Let’s talk!
Our highly acclaimed studio might look like a playground complete with treehouse and astroturf, but it’s designed to be a fun and inspiring place to work. Best of all, it’s brimming with brilliant people.
Let’s talk about tech
Scaling Moshi Monsters to over 98 million users and numerous devices across the globe is no mean feat, so we’re constantly searching for outstanding tech talent. Exceptional people who can handle some of the best technology available today, from Scala, Akka, Thrift and Cassandra to Objective-C, AS3 and Unity. Everything we do runs in the cloud, so AWS expertise is key, too.
Our relentless urge to innovate means we’re always tinkering with new tools such as Node.js, Kafka, Storm and WebGL. But there’s more to Mind Candy than systems, software and even monsters. We’re working on several groundbreaking top-secret projects, so there will be plenty of opportunities to get your tech teeth into something truly game changing.
