What does success look like for you? For folks here, it means thriving in a high-autonomy environment and tackling complex problems in a technical space that is constantly changing and evolving. Engineers on our teams are focused on writing great code, but more-so collaborating with Product, Design, and other team members to define what games mean on the blockchain, and creating this new opportunity for our users.
As a Software Engineer at Dapper, you'll be at the forefront of our mission, developing your professional expertise and gaining proficiency in various technical aspects of your role.

  • Problem Solving: You excel at unblocking team members when they face technical challenges, demonstrating your ability to make steady progress on tasks and knowing when to seek help to overcome obstacles.
  • Communication: You are a strong communicator, capable of collaborating effectively with non-technical functions such as Product and Design teams. You understand how your work fits into larger projects and can identify and address potential issues with project requirements.
  • Ownership and Prioritization: You take ownership of small-to-medium tasks, ensuring they are planned and executed effectively. You can prioritize tasks effectively, avoiding unnecessary focus on unimportant details.
  • Support: You are capable of providing support for your area, even in parts that you may not be familiar with. You work well within a team and can adapt to different aspects of your role as needed.
