Key Responsibilities

Being a Lead at Sharkmob

As a Lead, we expect you to support team members by providing the resources, leadership, and tools they need to be successful. You facilitate collaboration, teamwork, and champion your team's achievements and successes. By embodying these principles, you as a leader can help develop a culture of creativity, collaboration, and continuous improvement that benefits not just those you lead but also those around you, as well as Sharkmob as a studio.

We expect you to lead by example - to inspire and motivate others. You champion the studio and act as a first point of contact for your direct reports. You stand behind your team, take decisions and act in accordance with the values of Sharkmob.

Your Experience & Requirements

Who we are

Sharkmob was founded in 2017 and has offices in Malmö, Sweden, and London, UK. The studio develops AAA-quality games for PC and console, using the Unreal Engine to power its ambitions of taking multiplayer games to new heights.

Currently, we are working on two major projects: Exoborne – a Sharkmob original game created in Malmö, is a tactical, open-world extraction shooter set in a United States torn apart by apocalyptic forces of nature. The second project, developed in London, is another Sharkmob original IP yet to be announced. Our first game, Bloodhunt - a battle royale set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe, was released on 27 April 2022.

At Sharkmob, we are committed to building an inclusive team that represents diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and skillsets – because we believe that helps us create great games. We welcome all candidates who are aligned with our core values of shared ownership, creating great games, and, last but not least – having fun! We hope you want to join us on our adventure and become a part of our crew. You can find more great perks of being a crew member.
