Software Development Engineer, Leaftail Labs

Location: Seattle, Washington

Leaftail Labs is looking for a talented Software Engineer to help us in our quest to pioneer immersive gaming for all. We’re a small, fast-growing company, so we’re looking for software engineers who like to learn and try new things. We like to experiment with new gameplay ideas, iterating quickly to find out what works and what doesn’t. We are not afraid of making mistakes; that’s how we learn.

Software engineers are expected to:

  • Draw on software development experience in mobile development, augmented reality and / or back-end service development.
  • Learn new technologies quickly, so you can work in many different feature areas.
  • Work independently, moving from a feature specification to a tested and deployed feature with minimal oversight.
  • Fix bugs in complex systems.
  • Create tools to help the team be as productive as possible.
  • Share the on-call duty to ensure the smooth running of our 24/7 services.
  • Make a positive influence in the workplace and help us create an office culture where everyone is excited to come to work.


  • Strong working knowledge of the Unity game engine.
  • Assisted in shipping products in a professional team environment.
  • Be very proficient with at least one programming language, ideally C #.
  • Authorized to work in the United States.

Individual responsibility, respect, a team-oriented attitude and a continuous effort to learn are the basis for us at Leaftail.

  • Be ready for change: Change is the only constant and we need a flexible team that can adapt quickly and easily. Be comfortable wearing multiple hats – there is no “it’s not my job” here.
  • Try something new: Be prepared to try new things, try a new skill, and be comfortable with mistakes – this is the fastest way to learn.
  • Be interesting: Developing our hobbies, passions and interests makes us better people and better teammates. We make this super easy by incorporating these ideals directly into our office benefits!
    • Keep playing: free games. You choose them, we buy them.
    • Keep reading: Free books. All the books you want: read something interesting and tell us about it!
    • Keep It Together: Regular team hangouts in all Fremont rad spots (COVID security permit)
