Who we are

i3D.net is a leading provider of high-performance, low-latency hosting through a vast, privately-owned global network. As game sector veterans, we know what it takes for a network to withstand heavy demands, and as of 2019, we are a member of the Ubisoft family. Now we’re growing faster than ever, keeping some of the world’s biggest games and WebRTC services online, and their users connected.

The role

As a fast growing Game Hosting company, we are looking to grow all our Agile Development teams with Back-end PHP developers on mid-level and senior level. Our main challenges are:

  • Making sure gamers from all over the world can play their favorite games without any interruptions. This requires high availability and reliability of our API that needs to provide game server data to matchmakers on a continuous basis.
  • Building advanced dashboards based on a large amount of data. These dashboards will be used by our customers across the world to keep a close look at the performance of their live game.
  • Continuously increasing our services portfolio, by adding our in-house CDN, Anti-Cheat and Anti-DDoS system to our Game Hosting Platform.
  • Deploying game servers in a matter of minutes across the world without delay.
  • Handling a large influx of players by automatically scaling into multiple clouds such as GCP, AWS, Azure as well as our on Bare Metal Cloud.

Together with the rest of the development team, the UX designer and the Product Owner you define the technical solutions to these challenges.

  • You take part in overall software development improvement initiatives that are a combined effort with the other development teams.
