Software Engineering Manager (UK)
- Programming and Development - Middlesbrough , United Kingdom
|Job Title||Software Engineering Manager (UK)|
We're looking for a Software Engineering Manager to join our thriving studio.
We're looking for someone to manage our code team across multiple projects, including external partners and across both our studios in Middlesbrough and Kuala Lumpur. Reporting to the Development Manager, you would be responsible for code resource allocation across all our current projects, progression frameworks, hiring, personal development of code team members, budgeting and scheduling milestones. This is a "hands off" role so you won't be involved in the technical aspects of a project's development, instead this will be all about being business facing with team management.
You'll have a proven track record in managing a code team or good experience gained from a Lead Programmer position looking to move up into a full management position. It's essential you have a technical / programmer background within the video games industry.
WOULD YOU ENJOY
If so, you may be interested in becoming a Software Engineering Manager at Double Eleven. We are fundamentally different in the way we work and from what you may be used to. Our company was created on the premise that people could have normal lives and do what they love doing. On the rare occasions we work overtime it's always voluntary and always paid. Also, from time to time we also offer voluntary out of hours paid projects.
Think of us as a crew instead of a studio, heading in the same direction and dependent on one another to succeed.
