FableLabs builds NOTHING but awesome story-driven games for the tablet and web. Our team of creatives and technologists from BioWare, Maxis, LucasArts, Popcap, and Dreamworks have built and scaled products with millions of users and we've recently closed on fundraising to scale our team. We take the best storytelling elements of adventure / role playing games but make the gameplay accessible, free-to-play and fun for those who don’t have 8 hour blocks of time to hack and slash through dungeons.

We're building gameplay systems that lend themselves to great storytelling.  And we're not afraid of using these gameplay systems to tell fundamentally different stories than what you see in the industry today.  Our first couple of titles feature Sherlock Holmes recreated as a middle school nerd and a mother searching for her daughter in the depths of Hell.  As much as we love the sci-fi and fantasy genre, there's so many other stories we'd like to bring to bring to life with our gameplay systems. We're looking for folks that thrive when given significant responsibility, an atmosphere that stresses continuous learning and a touch of chaos as we explore uncharted territory.


Specialization is for insects, generalist developers at FableLabs do a little bit of everything. We expect you to have shipped online games and touched a large variety of systems.  We're not looking for someone to mentor; we're looking for leaders who can clear the way for their colleagues.  Handled server-side scaling challenges?  Check. Combat, cinematic, navigation, crafting systems?  Piece of cake. Tools that empower the team? You've lost track of how many things you've built to help others or yourself save time.


  • Develop and maintain scalable asynchronous backends that optimize game load time while keeping server cost down
  • Rebuilding gameplay features as robust, reusable systems
  • Content authoring tools (ALL kinds of content, not just art) that increase quality and streamline communication


  • 5+ years software development experience with at least 1 working with live service-based mobile/tablet/web games (MMO preferred) and Unity3D
  • Proven track record working with high load and high availability systems in shipped games
  • Proficiency with interpreted languages (C#, Java) and/or scripting languages (Python, Lua)
  • Experience with git, Amazon EC2, NoSQL (DynamoDB), and key-value pair storage solutions 
  • B.S. in Computer Science, or equivalent experience 


  • Position is located in SOMA district of SF (close to Bart, Muni and Caltrain)
  • Top of the market salary, equity and full healthcare/dental/vision benefits
