Mojang Studios is best known as the creators of Minecraft, but we’re also on a mission  to build a better world through the power of play. 

Why play? Well, play is at the heart of everything we do. It’s the blocky backbone of our games, the core of our development philosophy, and even the origin of our name. From the relentless experimentation of our endlessly inspiring community to the classrooms where Minecraft has become an essential teaching tool, play is the bedrock of our existence. 

The Minecraft Game UI team is focusing on improving Minecraft's UI and UX across all platforms. As a member of this team, you will have the unique challenges of creating a scalable, performant and stable UI built on the foundation of an internal design system. You'll join a cross-functional team and work closely with the other developers, designers, producers, all working together on a game enjoyed by over 100,000,000 players worldwide. We have big dreams for the future of Minecraft and need you to help make them happen.

By joining our team, you will find an environment that enables you to leverage your knowledge and values to maintain and evolve a healthy and collaborative team culture as we grow.

As a JavaScript developer you will work with modern web technology to develop the UI. The end user experience is central, and a big aspect of the role is to implement the designer’s and UX’s visions in a performant way. This in turn means that communication and handover with design and UX is an important day-to-day cornerstone.

What you will be doing:

  • Work with the internal design system to develop new game screens in Minecraft Bedrock, using
  • TypeScript and React
  • Collaborating with C++ developers on building new UI and making joined API decisions
  • Work with design and product to solve user needs
  • Support existing production screens and evolve them with A/B tests and user research
  • Collaborate with other teams to drive UI cohesion throughout the game
  • Improve ways of working and technical best practices within the team

 What you will bring to the team:

  • Proficiency with JavaScript, React and preferably TypeScript.
  • Experience of working in product teams that build experiences towards a large customer base.
  • Strong communication and problem-solving skills, as well as a natural collaborator and team player
  • A value for the end user experience, having the user in mind when you develop new features; if you identify potential issues, you bring them to the team.
  • Passion about test automation and quality.

For this role, we will consider team and company fit holistically. This means we will put a lot of emphasis on your interpersonal skills. Due to this, we welcome different seniority levels in this process. Your seniority level will influence the responsibilities and areas of concern in the role.
