CubeCraft Games

Hi CubeCrafters,

We're looking to expand our team over the coming months to help us deliver better content both on the server and as part of the marketplace team. I want to just take a moment to explain why we're hiring the roles which we are and what we hope this will help us to achieve. This isn't something we've done in the past but as part of our commitment to the community, I feel like it's worth keeping you all in the loop.

Interested in working for us already and don't want to read my waffle? Click here to go to the jobs page.

We're hiring in three areas:
  • Server Engine (Development)
  • Product and Project Team
  • Design Team (Marketplace)
Server Engine Team
The server engine team doesn't currently exist. We are creating this team to focus on Anticheat, performance and base game functionality. CubeCraft has unique challenges as although we are one network we operate across three distinct Minecraft platforms (1.8, 1.9+ and Bedrock).

Minecraft has a habit of releasing new versions (annoying, right? ;) ) and we need to ensure that we keep up to date with the latest versions of the Minecraft client whilst maintaining backwards compatibility with previous versions. Don't forget - we have to keep up to date both on Java and Bedrock!

Sentinel, our anti-cheat, currently doesn't have a dedicated developer. This isn't a situation we want to be in but we're taking this opportunity to restructure where Sentinel sits. Previously Sentinel has sat on top of our server engine analysing player behaviours and acting off that. Going forwards we are wanting to bake Sentinel in to become part of our core server software. This will remove some of the performance bottlenecks we have and allow us to develop new & unique strategies going forward. In the immediate future, we're borrowing dev resources from other projects to try and maintain and improve our current iteration of Sentinel.

We've done some...

Spring Lobby & Egg hunt

What is a seasonal update without a seasonal lobby! Our Spring lobby is back, and more colourful than ever! Explorer the fields of eggs and flowers and maybe play hide & seek! But what is a Spring lobby without an awesome Egg Hunt? For Spring 2020, we've added back our well known Egg Hunt. For our Java network, there are 25 precious eggs scattered around our Spring lobby, if you find them all, you'll win some points, experience, 2 Spring Cubelets and a Pink Rabbit Banner to wear on your head!

For our Bedrock network, we've hidden 15 beautiful eggs around our lobby, and if you find them all, you'll win an epic Chocolate Bunny Win Effect and an "Egg Hunt 2020" username prefix!
