To do this the developers will work closely and effectively with our production team (Designers, Project Manager and Development Manager).

During an integration project the team will integrate our games with third-party platforms. This will involve constructing communications via an XML interface and or integrating with a client API.

During a Legacy project the development team will work with Legacy code on games which have already been designed and integrated. This may be in response to a bug identified by one of our partners, a game change to meet new regulations, or in order to re-skin an existing game.

To give you an idea of the technologies used within the development team, please see below.
