What will you do in Social Point as a Technical Director?

- You will be the main technology responsible for a single live game in Social Point.

- You will be the owner of the architecture and technical roadmap: identify, align with stakeholders, plan and execute. A sort of mini-CTO within your own start-up.

- You are a 360 degrees Tech Leader - you have the potential and ability to go from being a very hands-on individual contributor to manage a growing tech team negotiating deadlines, managing expectations, coaching and influencing results. It's all about disruptive mindset and agility!

- Quality and productivity are key!

- You will be responsible for coaching and mentoring the developers, identifying and improving weaknesses, being effective at managing conflicts.

- You will be a Technical member of the game management team, reporting directly to the VP Product of the game and to the VP Technology of the company.

- Beyond your own game, you will have to collaborate with other Tech Directors to share best practices and technology approaches/solutions.

- You will work with other members of the game management team to define and implement new procedures.

This is you

- Passion for technology, controlling all technical aspects of a f2play mobile game (client, server, live operations, devops): you have done this already for multiple years.

- Excellent people management skills : you have managed at least a medium size team for a while now.

- You show ownership, learning agility and ability to go from being operational to strategic on a daily basis.

- Excellent communication skills (you can actually explain technology topics to people with little technical background).

- Experience shipping and maintaining an online game (ideally mobile).

- Collaboration: team goals are the priority, but collaboration with other teams is key for the company.

- Proactivity: continuously challenge and improve.

- Clear vision: have a clear vision of where to bring the product and technology of the game.

- Great organisation and planning skills.

- Passionate about gaming.

- Analytical mindset.
