We're looking for an enthusiastic developer and manager. This is a hybrid role, perfect for a developer with an interest in management in a fast-paced startup. The candidate will spend about 50% of their time programming and the other 50% managing an agile and talented team. This role is suitable for a Unity3d expert with an understanding of other technologies, or someone with a background in CS with a willingness to learn more about Unity3d. In both cases, you will need to be literate in a broad range of technologies, and willing to constantly learn new ones.

You enjoy internal team collaboration, but enjoy working with customers and addressing their concerns.

Location:

Though we are based in the Austin, TX, area, remote candidates are  encouraged to apply.
