SW Development Manager (Hands-On)- Stealth Mode Startup
Software Development Manager
Location: Boston, MA
Weâ€™re a stealth mode startup backed by Atlas Venture and Nextview Ventures. In less than six months, we plan to turn the mobile gaming economy on its head! Gamers will have a totally new kind of gameplay and developers will unlock new revenue streams that dwarf those coming from todayâ€™s archaic banner ads. We know how to build and scale disruptive technology companies and we want your help.
We are a team of smart individuals who come from companies like Google, Endeca and Kayak. Each day begins with at least one video game and each week finishes with a bucket of cold beers. In between, weâ€™re working tirelessly to build a truly novel and groundbreaking company. We are creators and builders with a â€œdo whatever it takesâ€ mentality, and weâ€™re recruiting a core team who will constitute the foundation on which monumental success will be built.
Who weâ€™re looking for:
You’re excited to lead a team of developers to build out an amazing product for the video game industry. You take pride in doing things the â€œrightâ€ way and youâ€™re willing to build and mentor a talented development team. Youâ€™re excited to play a key role in product development and youâ€™re eager to work closely with both the product team and a beta-user community to make the product perfect. You love the idea of working at a startup because it means your fingerprints will be on everything we build.
