Ever fancied making the move to Toronto, Canada?
I'm working with an awesome indie studio to find them a new Technical Director to oversee development of their projects. If you're passionate about providing high-level direction and still want to get your hands dirty with day-to-day development, then I'd love to hear from you!

Directors at the studio have a big influence on the decisions not just within their department but across the whole game, so I'm looking for someone who wants to take a major part in the future of the games and studio.

You will need to be an accomplished engineer that enjoys collaborating closely with engineering teams to build a technically excellent game across multiple platforms. You're someone who enjoys collaborating with art, design, and production to understand the artistic vision for a game and identify the technology needed to realise and surpass that vision.

Responsibilities:

  • Own the technological vision of the company and lead the development of the technologies and systems
  • Determine what technology and middleware is best suited for each project
  • Ensure that each game is being built with a productive methodology and solid coding practices, technical briefs, code reviews, keeping in mind long term quality and future code sharing between projects.
  • Take responsibility for recruitment, on-boarding, development and professional training of the programming team
  • Propose solutions to improve the development of projects in the studio
  • Identify and promote the application of technical best practices within the studio
  • Maintain a strong understanding of multiplayer FPS games

Requirements:

  • Proficiency in C++
  • At least 7 years professional video game programming experience
  • Previous leadership/mentorship experience, or leadership interest and potential
  • Experience in developing AAA titles on multiple console platforms
  • Experience in unreal 4 or similar engines
  • Comfortable wandering around unexplored game design territory, and excited to help refine ideas into shippable features



Keep Calm and waka waka...
