> Working at Mediatonic

Just so you have an idea of what it is like to work with us…
We like Agile and usually do Scrum. We are used to planning ahead and have a clear view of milestones. We tend do two week sprints and always like to have a short daily standup for all the team to attend. Sprint plannings, backlog assignments, retrospectives… that’s the usual deal.

We work in small and ambitious teams, and we strive for minimal hierarchy. Our philosophy is open and informal whilst also being really hard-working. You’ll be the real lead of your own tasks, but you will always have the support of your teammates. We encourage people to share their questions and expertise.

We are software agnostic, but our current standard is to use, amongst other things, Unity and Git. And we like peer review! All our engineering work is committed after your own teammates go th rouge your pull requests and validate them.

We want you to meet your fellow colleagues working in London and/or Brighton. We will probably set up a trip for you to go there and get to know the rest of the Mediatonic crew in person. It’s really fun. Really.

We spend lunchtimes playing on our Nintendo Switch, PS4 or on our awesome arcade machine, or maybe enjoying a role playing session. We also like to get together from time to time. Sometimes it’s just a beer after work, but we also organise bigger stuff like monthly team lunches and company-wide events such as gamejams or bi-annual parties.

We share what we do with the rest of the company. We are as transparent and communicative as possible when it comes to the projects updates and the company roadmaps and plans.
