Two simple questions:

Do you know your way around building, testing and deploying web apps? Are you an excellent coder with extensive PHP knowledge? If you have answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions, read on my friend!

Rebellion is a leading developer and publisher of games, and is also one of Europe’s biggest independent studios operating across books, comics, TV and film. Our Sniper Elite series is renowned for its authentic stealth and sniping gameplay with more than 35 million players worldwide.
