  • Your role will include collaboration with other leads on the project to remove blockers, keep production moving forward, and balance technical decisions within the project leadership team. You will also be supporting and developing efficient technical solutions to gameplay problems and keeping an eye on performance & stability as well as (time permitting) practically implementing features and systems as needed. You will be expected to work proactively with your responsibilities and as this is a multilayered role, be able to prioritize among your tasks.
