Radical Forge is a growing creative powerhouse based in Northeast England. Starting as two people looking to build something special, we have grown relentlessly, working on a wide variety of well known released titles as well as a range of internal IP projects. These internal projects have reached a point where we need a really skilled, motivated individual to ensure that the kit that we use to make our projects (design, build, run) are operating at the highest level possible.

Making those systems and networks operate at peak efficiency is essential as we regularly have situations where all the systems are put under stress.

Taking our current build process and automating that, using the right tools for the job is where the role is heading. The person who takes on this role needs to be ready to build a PC one day and build a pipeline for our latest IP the next.
You will feel suited for this position if you enjoy the constantly changing work schedule that comes from being the only person that might have time to carry out an IT related task.
You’ll want to take ownership of the hardware and software audits, understanding just why they are so crucial to the business's success.
Understanding how we take our bunch of noughts and ones and make them into something that can be played on a device will be the sort of thing that keeps you entertained.
As a person, we are looking for someone who can do all the tasks listed but do them with a sense of humour.
