Careers with Crucible

Want to join the melting pot of fun & creativity? Read on...

We're always keen to hear from people who want to work in gaming. Our team rose up through the ranks of the best known gaming companies in the world, and just as they gave us our big break, we want to pay that forward.

We love to hear from individuals with a passion for coding, art, design, testing and project management. Even if we aren't currently hiring, please feel free to drop us a CV and covering letter. We read every single one and if there's something we can offer you, we will. If not, we'll keep your details on file for the future.



We’re looking for developers to help us code games – we use Pixi together with other libraries. Ideally you’d have a couple of years’ experience in front end development but if you can code bare metal JS/TS and like games, we want to hear from you!

We would want you to work from our offices, but some element of home working may be possible for the right candidate.
So what’s the role, then?

  • Coding of HTML5 based casino games, working with art, audio and QA teams
  • Read project specifications and design & code new elements as necessary.
  • Examine existing code/software base and modify or re-write as necessary.
  • Develop and refine the UI (in conjunction with the designers)
  • Self-test, evaluation and updating of code produced.
  • Help us develop and update our framework

OK. What skills and experience do I need?

  • Front End dev experience using hand-coded JS/TS, CSS and HTML
  • Experience of Pixi is a big advantage but not essential
  • Experience of Git & npm
  • Solid experience of using programming frameworks and code libraries
  • Methodical approach to design, development and testing – and problem solving!
  • An understanding of XML or JSON is very beneficial
  • Solid debugging skills using Chrome dev tools and others
  • Advanced use of JavaScript including the use of prototypes and closures is very beneficial
  • Good communication skills are important

What else might be handy?

· A passport is useful – you may be travelling abroad to visit exhibitions and clients

· An interest in gaming is good as you will hopefully want to contribute to game design!

Alright, and what about the company? What’s in it for me?

· Very competitive salary depending on your experience and skills

· 25 days holiday per year

· Company pension

· Based in the middle of Sheffield, in the Electric Works digital campus

· Want to host coding or dev events? We’ll sponsor them!

· More fun stuff – help us decide future benefits

Unsure? Got questions? Please give us a shout with your CV!

Job Type: Full-time

Salary: £25,000.00-£45,000.00 per year

INTERESTED? Please apply with a CV and cover letter to by 31st March 2023
