Back-end Developer

PocApp is an independent game studio that consists of 15 developers and our cuddly friends. We love fika and work together in a cozy and very relaxed environment developing mobile games.

At PocApp we implement flexible working hours, 35h/weeks, a generous insurance package and payments to your pension fund. We also offer a generous wellness grant for health-related activities and time to work out during office hours every day. Being lovers of fika, there is also something for everyone to snack at during breakfast and our afternoon break.
