An opportunity has popped up with an award-winning and growing business who are developing mobile and web games for clients across numerous continents. This is a rare opportunity to work in the free to play games industry, using the science of gamification to make user engagement simple.

Based in the heart of Edinburgh but now fully remote, this business is going through exciting growth and working with big household names across the globe. This could be your opportunity to innovate and lead in their already successful product suite. The business specializes in helping its clients acquire, retain, and monetize customers via web and mobile apps in the form of free to play games.

This role is a new addition to the business, where you will lead the already established development team. You will lead approx 6-7 team members but this number is set to double(or more) in 2021 due to exciting business wins. You will work closely with the CTO on a day to day basis.
