As a person, you are a mentor by heart and your collaboration skills are fully tuned after quite some time as a leader of complex projects in the industry. You know how to support peers all around the world and you feel fulfilled only when those team members are safe, included and motivated.

In this role, you’ll collaborate closely with the rest of the team and the studio; you’ll not only be a part of Embark’s mission to democratize the development of games and other interactive experiences, you will be part of building a team which are working within areas yet to be explored.

  • Leadership experience from complex projects, and remote teams
  • Several years of experience as a game developer focusing on gameplay
  • You have experience from professional game engines, using C++, Python, Rust or similar languages
