Product Madness burst into life in 2007 as the brainchild of two Stanford Business MBA graduates who possessed an innate love of gaming. Initially, the entrepreneurs developed casual games for Facebook and mobile, before having a ‘light-bulb moment’ in 2009 and refocusing their efforts with laser-guided precision on the exploding social casino genre. They have been bringing world-class social slots to real slots fans ever since! Now part of Aristocrat Leisure, Product Madness have published hit titles Heart of Vegas, Cashman Casino, FaFaFa and Lightning Link on Facebook, iOS and Android platforms and have grown considerably in size over the past year.
Product Madness is looking for a passionate hands-off software development manager that can oversee remote full-stack developers in primary eastern Europe and a small team of native mobile client developers in London. Your role is to drive engineering excellence for a local engineering team as well as larger teams in Eastern Europe to support high performance using agile and lean methodologies.
Your teams are across the Central Operational Platforms and Services who are responsible for building and maintaining central services and platforms like customer support portal, email campaigns, game integration SDK for all our games to use the central services, 3rd party integrations to e.g. Appsflyer, Facebook, Apple as well as internal data integrations between the games and user acquisition and data science.
This is a role that will suit an empathetic technology leader, who can focus on driving a candid feedback culture, mentor and coach engineers and have a focus on great people and cross-team practices.
The mobile SDKs provide support for iOS and Android platforms and are developed in ObjC, Swift, Java and Kotlin, with a C# bridge for integration with Unity. A great emphasis is placed on CI, employing xUnit tools for testing, with Gradle for build orchestration on Jenkins.
The main tech stack is currently web-based against a Ruby on Rails backend running on physical machines. We will be moving to cloud-based microservices and refreshing our technologies over the next years with a move to a mixed technology stack to be defined. Our development support runs on Jenkins for CI, Applivery, Artifactory, Git for source control, and Jira/Atlassian for project management.
