Job Salary – Negotiable dependent on experience

The client is one of the most successful mobile developers in the UK developing console-quality mobile games in Unity. Their declared aim is to produce games which will redefine the boundaries and standards of mobile gaming and they are looking for an experienced and talented Project Manager to help them achieve this. In this lynch-pin role you will enable the team to deliver outstanding projects to the agreed budget and timelines and will do anything to support that team.

You will be the go-to person for your team for direction and organisation, you call the meetings on time and end them with specific results before time; you’re the master of “getting things done”, letting everyone focus on their tasks and not worry about the rest.

  • Be an Agile evangelist, developing process within the framework that’s right for the team
  • Be the driver; removing blockers and empowering the team to deliver the highest quality product
  • Plan with confidence, communicate efficiently, improve everything
  • Fail fast, learn faster
  • Share successes and failures with other teams


The studio would expect you to have owned and run full games development cycles within a Production role, ideally in the mobile arena but they will look at candidates with a solid track record on console platforms too.

Naturally, you will be a true people person with outstanding communication skills. Practical experience and understanding of Agile / Scrum is beneficial, theoretical understanding critical. Bonus points include previous experience of working with outsource partners, including setting up appropriate pipelines and sign off processes, and ensured the correct contractual and financial work is completed.

You'll be helping to build some of the most successful mobile games on the App Store with a talented and inspirational team. And you won't just be a small cog in a big machine, you'll make a huge difference.

The company offers a competitive salary as well as a bonus structure - above all though, they offer a truly outstanding working environment, both with regards to the facilities but also to atmosphere and team spirit. They are hugely personality focused and pride themselves in looking after their staff, making sure a healthy work / life balance is in place. They give staff a day’s holiday on their birthdays, buy the beer (or beverage of choice) in the pub on a Friday, have a pool table, darts board, table footie and ping pong table, go go-karting and clay pigeon-shooting and overall make sure everyone is looked after. Plus they are nice people and do their bit for charity.
