Our Mission

Radical Forge is a Middlesbrough, UK-based developer that has provided co-development services on a range of AAA and indie titles. In 2021 the company created their first original IP, 'Brightpaw', which was published on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One/Series S/X, Google and iOS by Rogue Games.

Since its beginnings in 2017, the company has grown to over 60 incredibly talented, collaborative, and creative individuals. We are the sum of our skills, passion, and, most of all, our people. We firmly believe that treating individuals with genuine respect, understanding, and kindness creates a welcoming culture that allows creativity to thrive and for individuals to join together to create games they are genuinely proud of.

Your Mission

Your mission is to take control and responsibility of the day-to-day operations of the IT department, maintaining and innovating the systems we use. You need to prioritise your time effectively to ensure no tasks fall through the net, and critical ones are dealt with quickly.

You must be adaptive; no two days are the same in the Radical Forge IT Department and you should be prepared for anything. You need to be ready to build a server one day and a pipeline for our latest IP or client project the next.

You will be assisting the engineering team where required with infrastructure, sourcing hardware and software from vendors, monitoring networks and systems, deploying assets to new and remote users, adhering to and improving security policies, maintaining accurate stock records, planning and implementing projects as required by the business, updating and improving documentation, and much much more.

You must be ready to ensure our systems and networks operate at peak efficiency - we regularly encounter situations where all of our systems are put under considerable stress for prolonged periods of time.

You will make sure to always maintain systems security and stability - this is a core function of the job role and absolutely essential to the running of the business.

Ideal Applicant

If you enjoy an environment where no two days are the same, where you are constantly challenged and never left looking for things to do then you will thrive here.

If you love having sole responsibility for tasks then you will also do well, as the running of the department will be your responsibility.

We are looking for someone with a keen eye for auditing and a good knowledge of why asset security is so essential to the business.

If you have a background working in a development industry this would be a major plus - the ideal candidate would understand and appreciate how we take zeroes and ones and create something truly memorable out of them.

We as a company have a truly people-first culture - it is important that you fit in with that. We are looking for someone who can do all of the above, but also do it with a smile, someone who can have a laugh with the rest of the team during downtime. You must be serious about security and the critical tasks, willing to roll up your sleeves and get the job done like the rest of us, but we encourage a bit of silliness as well. Everyone brings something unique of their own to Radical Forge, we embrace it all.

Skills Summary

Salary - £35,000 - £45,000 per year

This role is primarily onsite at our office in Middlesbrough.

We will require all applicants to have a pre-existing right to work in the UK.
