In order to do this, they need to get the best talent coming into their business and this is hopefully where you will come in. This provides a significant opportunity for progression and professional development.
What you’ll do:
- Design, Implement, and Maintain the core systems that bring the game vision to life
- Implement your working knowledge of how to create scalable software solutions for video games

We are also happy to look outside of the gaming ‘ecosystem’ for this role so those with experience in other markets, that may cross over to this, are encouraged to apply. We are seeking a driven individual who will operate proactively in a fast-growing small business environment, with a lot of activities needing covering and new challenges emerging regularly.
