Particle Code is a venture-backed company based in Palo Alto, California, funded by leading Silicon Valley personalities on a mission to solve one of the biggest challenges in mobile software development: platform fragmentation. The founders have a strong track record of starting successful game companies, including the recent acquisition of their last startup, Mytopia.
The current team is made up of talented engineers who are passionate about mobile applications and games. We see Particle as the UN of platforms, a unique cross-platform framework built to allow developers to focus on what they do best: create compelling experiences for their users on any device. We are looking for unique individuals to join our family, for this venture, and the next, and the next. Our company culture is positive, fun and dynamic. We hold weekly tech talks for the enrichment of our team and play the occasional game of laser tag.
