Engineering Manager (Web Tooling)

  • Full-time
  • London - Server Side Engineering
  • Description

    We’re looking for a Software Engineering Manager to support and build our Web Tooling teams - including Gamefuel, the Content Management System which delivers content and configuration to Fall Guys, and the player tooling used by our customer support teams.

    As an Engineering Manager you’re a great leader of people with experience managing software engineers. You enjoy getting directly involved with technical challenges and have your own opinions on what team structures work at what scale.

    You’re not expected to be the strongest engineer in the room - while you feel you could get to the bottom of anything you set your mind to you delegate, seek advice from your team and represent them and their concerns to stakeholders.

    You’re a natural “technical product owner” with a knack for keeping everybody aligned around a problem - you enjoy communicating priorities with your team and it’s stakeholders. Human communication comes naturally to you - you know when it’s time to insist on something yet happily change your views when presented with new information.

    You’ll be expected to take on some direct reports. You’ll work with those reports to understand their motivations and guide them through their careers at Mediatonic, figuring out what support they individually need along the way. As you do so you’ll help Mediatonic improve its own career guidance and line management practises.

    We are looking for an Engineering Manager to join Mediatonic. Mediatonic is the game developer behind Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and a new member of the Epic Games family. We’re aiming to build "the Greatest Gameshow on Earth" as part of our mission to connect people through massively-multiplayer game experiences. We take pride in crafting original titles that bring people together. Our quest is to create joyful experiences that are open to all by investing in the ideas, technologies and people that can bring our vision to life.We’re looking for fantastic people to join our world-class team to help grow Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout into an entertainment platform and to nurture the other equally ambitious titles we’re dreaming up.
