Oooh is a team of 26 who have built some of the biggest global phenomenons in media and games. We have come together with a moonshot mission to build a smarter and healthier next-gen digital platform focused on younger audiences. And, one that’s way more fun. We are backed by an incredible group of Silicon Valley and Los Angeles-based investors, founders, product and technology leaders and entertainment moguls—all of whom feel personally connected to our purpose.

General overview of the role

Oooh is looking for a HTML 5 Game Developer to join our team! Working remotely OR from either our Los Angeles or Kelowna, British Columbia Canada offices, you’ll be the first dedicated internal developer working on a large portfolio of very unique game and interactive entertainment applications. This role won’t only be responsible for Oooh’s internal projects, but will also be supporting a large number of external development teams all over the world by providing scalable and modular code that can be used across projects.

Ideally you’ve developed a number of HTML 5 games and/or web applications from the ground up, and are an expert on web technology standards, trends and tooling. Without this specific past experience and without a passion for games, you probably won’t be successful in this first role, but there will be plenty of opportunities for other positions shortly. So stay tuned!
