  • Provide day-to-day leadership for a team of engineers, including career guidance, mentorship and overall culture development
  • Work with the producer to create backlogs, guide the team’s estimation efforts, as well as establish and continuously improve development practices
  • Contribute with own code contributions as needed

  • Joining the team early means you will have immense impact and be rewarded for your contributions
  • Our team has decades of experience in all aspects of game publishing and production, and we like taking creative risks
  • We believe people are our only competitive advantage and are building a studio that supports that fact
  • We think diverse teams produce the best results
