About the job:

We’re seeking an Engineering Manager to lead a team of 8 engineers building web games that mix frontend React UI with webGL accelerated graphics.

As an engineering team, we are deeply ambitious. We've built our own web-based engine, UI library, character generator, game CMS, combat system and more. We involve everyone deeply in the product & design cycles, so you have input into what we build and why we're building it.

You’ll be working with an incredibly talented group of engineers. Our founding team has three MIT engineers and over time we’ve recruited engineers from Facebook, Cornell, Stanford and more. But we look for and find talent everywhere, some of our best engineers didn’t do CS at all.

We’re opinionated about good management and put a lot of time into it. Our leadership culture is centered around emotional intelligence, technical excellence and servant leadership. You’ll be well supported by a group of managers on the team who share notes on how to be the best we can be.

We’re proud to have one of the most diverse engineering teams in gaming. We hope this is as important to you as it is to us.

As an Engineering Manager, you'll get to:

  • Lead a team of high-skilled and diverse engineers eager to learn
  • Rapidly develop a deep understanding of relevant parts of our technology stack and assume technical ownership of major components of our code base
  • Participate in product conceptualization and development, ensuring designs and implementations are fully aligned with the company mission and product goals
  • Assess the ramifications of software changes and own risk identification/mitigation through effective software development, testing and deployment practices
  • Improve developer experience by adopting tools and policies that raise productivity for the entire engineering organization
  • Guide technical direction across multiple teams, including choices around language/framework, system architecture/infrastructure, best patterns and practices
  • Demonstrate persistence when faced with roadblocks, dispatching them efficiently and pulling in others as necessary while requiring minimal direction/oversight
  • Effectively resolve ambiguity, analyzing complex requirements and breaking down features and initiatives into tactical tasks
  • Deliver software that positively impacts multiple teams with sweeping improvements

Your experience should include:

  • 3+ years of experience managing an Engineering team
  • 3+ years of experience building in Javascript.
  • Familiarity with frontend Node.js and React.js.

Ideal Candidate:

  • Good at communicating, both on the technical and personal level. Great team members are skilled and a pleasure to work with.
  • A gamer at heart, however you define that. As long as you love playing and want to help other people play, you'll be a great fit.
  • Anywhere in a timezone between PST-EST. We've found that large timezone differences can be tough in a small team. You don't need to be in the US.

About One More Multiverse

One More Multiverse is an online video game platform making it as easy as possible to make, play, stream, and share tabletop role-playing games, with a creator focused marketplace. For every one nerd who plays tabletop games, there are ten more who would if getting started was just more intuitive. Jump into your next adventure with friends, whether they're across the table or across the world, in a click.

Our Vision:

As a team we have two main goals:

1) Grow the number of people who play tabletop RPGs

We think tabletop roleplaying games can be one of the most fun things in the world, but they can be so hard to get into and maintain. We want to make things easier by turning them from something you play in your head to something you play like a video game, online and with your friends. We think 10x more people could be playing tabletop games if only they had a few more modern conveniences.

2) Enable people to make a living making tabletop games

That said, there's no end to the creativity and imagination of people who make tabletop games and content. We think that if we 10x the number of people playing ttrpgs, creators should be the first to benefit.

Multiverse is built from day-one to have a marketplace where creators can make and sell games, characters, art, stories and more. We want people to be earning a living making content on Multiverse.

Our Culture

Our goal is not only to build a totally new kind of platform, but also a new kind of game company. We're fortunate to be well-funded and backed by some of the best investors in the industry, who have funded (or founded!) companies like Twitch, TSM, Oculus and PubG. We will continue to build a diverse team, and give them incredibly opportunities, room to grow, and strong support. We want to be the best job any of us have ever had. That means:

  • We're fully remote! Most of our team is based in the US, and split between PST and EST time zones, we're looking for someone close to those timezones, but other than that you can be anywhere!
  • Diversity & inclusion is a core part of our mission & you'll see that reflected in our team.
  • We don't believe in crunch. We set ambitious goals but always leave ourselves wiggle room. We believe in making space for vulnerability and taking care of the team first.
  • We make time to get to know each other & play games together.
  • Our benefits are comprehensive & really strong.
  • Compensation will be competitive.
