Bladework Games is a new game studio building a brand new living, online, cooperative multiplayer IP for the PC first and cross platform future. We're creating a new take on the ARPG genre, focusing on exciting combat, meaningful cooperative play, and the creation of a truly fun gameplay experience.
We're looking for someone who will leverage their technical expertise & leadership experience to implement the strategies required to successfully launch & maintain a living online multiplayer experience.
As our Technical Director, you will be managing how our day-to-day engineering processes play out, problem solving with our tech team, identifying areas for efficiency & improvement, and helping scope out our technical roadmaps.
If this sounds appealing to you, we'd love to chat.
Provide a clear vision for our architectural approach
Get hands-on and help lay the foundation so we're not paying for it years down the line
Context switch as necessary to balance between being an implementer and leader
Lead and scale the engineering team to an appropriate size
Move the project forward while respecting others opinions and avoiding micromanagement
Drive infrastructure, tools, and processes that’ll be key to success in LiveOps
Who You Are
Someone with meaningful experience with Unreal Engine and its networking
10+ years of experience in game development
2+ shipped titles in tech lead or tech director positions
1+ shipped title on a fast-paced online multiplayer game
You know "enough" across multiple areas of importance (ie. frontend, backend, cert, combat, art pipeline, etc) to anchor discussions
You are willing to dig into challenges where there isn't an expert and propose solutions in a way that helps grow the team
You won’t do it alone, you’ll get to know the strengths of your team and you’ll work with the right people to build the right solutions
You have a proven history of leading technical teams through change, either through hardware generations, design shifts, or other major upheavals.
