Lionheart Games

Lionheart Games is looking for an experienced “Technical Director” (C++ online game development required) who won’t just direct, review code, or share opinions on our games, but will also execute and produce well-written code themselves. Gaming is more than just a job for you; it’s a passion, lifestyle, and healthy obsession. You’re motivated to solve challenging problems and create an incredible user experience that is smooth and without interruption from technical problems. You know the best way to do this is hands-on, surrounded by game artists, programmers, designers, and others who share your passion and drive.


People successful in this role are intellectually curious and comfortable filling many roles on a team with minimal oversight. You thrive in an entrepreneurial and independent environment, and you’re not afraid to take calculated risks and trust in others. Everyone at Lionheart Games is excited about creating the best anime games possible, and we empower one another to learn and grow from our experiences. All of this means more opportunities for you to unleash your ingenuity, energy, collaboration, and dedication.
