  • Appraising the skill balance and career trajectory of each team member to optimise assignments and inform recruitment strategy.
  • Liaising with the Technical Director and Production Department to ensure code needs are met across concurrent developments.
  • Working with Principal programmers to identify areas or individuals in need of mentoring, support or further development.
  • Working with the Production Team to help identify and mitigate technical risks outside of the remit of the Team Principals.
  • Fostering collaboration and close working relationships between programmers and other staff.
  • Ensuring solid working practices are agreed upon and in place to produce quality code throughout the studio.


Who Are We Looking For?

  • An organised and efficient manager, able to triage and prioritise effectively through full product life cycles.
  • An accomplished programmer with proven talent planning, coding and debugging complex systems to schedule.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with the ability to talk to company members and other disciplines in a clear and concise manner.
  • A practical and balanced style, with a calm approach to resolving issues. Able to listen, empathise and see others’ perspectives.
  • Familiarity with staff appraisal, performance management and recruitment processes.
  • Talent for analysing processes and identifying issues.
  • A pro-active and nurturing mentality, conducive to the mentoring and objective critiquing of a growing department.
  • A solid working knowledge of contemporary development software and working practices.
  • Proven expertise in at least one professional OO language; preferably C++, C# etc will be seen as an added bonus, but is not essential. 


This is a fabulous opportunity to become part of their growing studio, where you’ll be empowered to explore your ideas in an open, creative and diverse culture.
