Hattrick.org is the original online football manager game, and a very lively community with users all over the world. Our organization is based in Malmö, Sweden and is split into three teams; the core development team implements new features in the game, the mobile team handles our mobile applications and the product team handles the day-to-day activities that keeps the game running.
As a support developer in the product team your main responsibility is handling tasks that require development skills. This includes fixing bugs and problems on the site, preparing data for marketing campaigns and building tools for administrative needs. On a daily basis you will work closely with the other members of the product team, with roles including community manager, developer, designer and data analyst. You will also interact with marketing and the other development teams. Finally, you will of course be in close contact with our users through the forums and other channels.
We are looking for passionate Hattrick users with a few years of experience as a developer in a support organization. As a developer we think you are solution-oriented, pragmatic and like working in a dynamic environment. We believe it is important that you have a history with Hattrick, as that means you already have a good understanding of what happens at different times in the game and how users are affected by maintenance and bugs.
An ideal candidate will have experience from at least some of the categories mentioned below.
SQL Server development and administration
Hattrick generates a lot of data that is stored in a number of Microsoft SQL Server databases. You will spend a lot of time digging through stored procedures, fixing data inconsistency problems and optimizing performance.

On the backend of Hattrick there are many small and large applications running that control everything from simulating matches to deleting old data, based on a detailed scheduling system. All of these applications will be under your supervision.

What we offer
As a member of the product team you will have lots of possibilities to define your job in terms of what you do and how you work. You will get to know about the ins and outs of all parts of Hattrick so there are many learning opportunities.
