Psst! We’re creating new magic. Interested in joining us in building a new world of adventures? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone who wants to be a part of 

The quest

We have a vision of the new game, but we need more than that. So this is where we hope you will build some magic together with us. 

Our TD will champion the technical vision and strategy for our new product line. You are the role model for technical leadership, and will work to build consciously and thoughtfully with scaling in mind as our project grows.  And most importantly, you know what it takes to build a strong, well rounded team that can deliver on an MMO’s needs.

What can you expect to do as our Technical Director:

  • Work with the team and stakeholders to set a technical vision and continuously work with the architecture of the entire technology needs for our game.
  • Own the technical decisions we make, including engine and tech stack, as we begin development
  • Understand the technical needs of a growing team and of an MMO
  • Always be looking at being solution-oriented and helping bring the right people together to solve problems.

What you will bring to the team:

  • Knowledgeable and in-touch with the current technical landscape, especially in games
  • Clear communication skills across all disciplines
  • Understanding when to buy components vs when to build our own
  • Comfortable taking tech decisions in line with the vision you will create and own (in line with Starstable Entertainment overall vision)
  • Working with the Producer to build our technical team
  • Can do attitude, while being realistic with constraints and costs.
  • Experience with commercial or alternative game engines preferred (i.e. Unity, Unreal, Godot)

The mission for the team 

This new game is something totally different, so the team that builds it really needs to be daring and driven and have our values in the backpack. We all need to be good collaborators and communicators.

We know that we will try small and fail fast. We will be open to feedback and let our audience grow with us. We know when to ask for help and how to share our knowledge with others. And we do know that at this stage, perfection is the enemy of success. 

To help you during this journey you will have a whole company with many years of experience and support functions. You’ll join our Creative Director,  Producer, and Game Designer in shaping the vision and bringing this new product to life to delight new audiences.
