We're working with one of Irelands biggest and fastest growing mobile games studios. They were established by a number of games veterans, and have grown their studio to around 50 people, and have secure in excess of €20m of investment. They've released one title, and have another in development; both of which are MMO's. Currently their server and back-end offering is fine, but they know with the growth of their games they need someone to develop their tech and make it much more scalable and robust.

This is where you could come in! We're looking for essentially a tech director level individual who can run, grow and develop the server team. This role will see you work directly with the CTO to implement and develop the server technology.
