Building the Skillz SDK

The Skillz SDK team continuously strives to create engaging content, smooth mobile experiences, and thrilling triumphs for our players. We believe our platform is the future of competitive multiplayer, and we do everything in our power to make that future a reality. You might be an Apple fan, or you may love Google, but either way, you’ll quickly become well acquainted and comfortable working with both platforms on our SDK team.

We spend most of our development time working in our React Native UI development stack, but we don’t shy away diving into all the native technologies we use as well. SDK team works with player chat, our friends system, game play video streaming, over-the-air deploys, real-time matchmaking and synchronous game play support. As an SDK team member, you’ll be learning and working with many of these technologies, and their related tech stacks.

Cross platform mobile development is no small ask, and doing it for an SDK used by thousands of game developers adds even more complexity. When we come up against a difficult problem, or a new technology, we make it our personal mission to learn it it. Our team is excited by this challenge, and thrives on it. We take pride in being able to plan, estimate, and deliver complex asks on time, and consider our work a reflection of ourselves.
