Corona Labs - Jobs

Frameworks Engineer

This position is based in the United States.

Join Corona Labs as we reinvent how the world develops software. We are enabling everyone to create world-class apps for phones, tablets, and other connected devices.

Corona SDK is the leading mobile development platform for building #1 cross-platform games, apps and eBooks. Over 150,000 developers use Corona from indies to game studios, from teenagers to octogenarians, from publishers to agencies. Their apps have consistently hit the top of the charts on all 4 major app stores: iTunes, Google Play, NOOK, and Amazon.

Corona’s Lua libraries are used in games, apps, and eBooks millions of times a day. They provide building blocks that span a wide range of rich functionality such as animation, user interfaces, events, graphics, text, internationalization, and OS interaction.

As an engineer in the Corona frameworks group, you will design and implement new frameworks that enable breakthrough developer productivity. This includes idea generation, prototyping, iterating on the implementation, and polishing them into shipping features. You will also help maintain and improve our existing Lua-based libraries.

We are looking for a self-starter that thrives in a fast-changing environment and gets things done quickly. You should be able to seamlessly switch between delivering great innovative leaps and steady incremental, compounding improvements. You are fearless when it comes to diving into new technologies. A “full stack” view comes naturally to you. You should be able to visualize your design decisions and their impact on our developers.

  • Desire to be a valuable contributor to a dynamic and growing team.
