Job Posting Title

Software Development Manager


We are 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 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.

What You'll Do

What We're Looking For

Why Product Madness ?

Product Madness is so much more than just a Pool table and a foosball game.

We believe in an honest and transparent approach with our teammates. Company wide weekly Town Halls, All Hands and strategy meetings are just a few ways in which we encourage an open and honest path to achieving complete transparency.

Despite a pandemic, there isn’t a day where we don’t feel connected to one another.

With frequent events, workshops, giveaways, slack coffee and donut sessions we have definitely brought on our office culture to this new virtual world of zoom calls.

We also try to cater for all our staff’s needs – be that a freshly brewed cappuccino made by our professional barista in our free coffee shop or by providing a bountiful supply of tasty snacks to keep us refueled and buzzing.

We love to organise plenty of social get-togethers and action-packed activity days, be it slipping inside an inflatable bumper ball for a mad session of football zorbing or throwing caution to the wind and traversing giddy treetop rope courses at Go Ape. On top of these team-building activities, our lunch and learn workshops, not to mention the lavish Christmas and summer parties, foster that ‘work hard, play hard’ mantra. Our offices are based in the heart of the metropolises of London and Lviv, surrounded by an abundance of diversity and inspiration to keep those ideas flowing.
