Role summary

Volley is looking for engineers to help us build the future of fun, casual, voice-powered games. In this role, you will be responsible for shipping features that improve the end-user experience while ensuring high software quality and collaborating with product, design, and other stakeholders.

This role will be for our Faceoff Mobile Game Team.

This job opportunity offers a hybrid work arrangement. We are specifically seeking candidates who are comfortable with on-site attendance in our Bay Area office three times per week and are either currently residing in or near the Bay Area or willing to relocate for on-site work.
