Mediatonic is a team of over 300 exceptionally talented and seriously hardworking people. We devote our careers to crafting awesome original games in the hopes of bringing a little more joy into the world.

As a creative business, we recognise that creativity is best inspired by different experiences and perspectives. We strive to create a culture of belonging, where all our colleagues feel welcome, supported and diversity is celebrated. We passionately believe that games are for everyone, whether we’re playing or creating them.


We are looking for a Platform Engineer to join Mediatonic. Games industry experience is optional!

Mediatonic is the game developer behind Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and a new member of the Epic Games family. We’re aiming to build "the Greatest Gameshow on Earth" as part of our mission to connect people through massively-multiplayer game experiences.

We take pride in crafting original titles that bring people together. Our quest is to create joyful experiences that are open to all by investing in the ideas, technologies and people that can bring our vision to life.

We’re looking for talented people to join our world-class team to grow Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout into an entertainment platform and to nurture the other equally ambitious titles we’re dreaming up.


At Mediatonic, a Platform Engineer is an operationally-minded programmer who takes ownership of our core technology and infrastructure. While everybody has their own areas of specialism, this could mean improving our application framework, configuring build pipelines, securing networks, or investigating memory leaks in production.

Our platform is a mix of operational automation and application “primitives” which support hundreds of thousands of players at any moment in time, shipping tens of thousands of messages each second.

Often you’ll be directly involved in building and architecting features. You’ll always be expected to define best practices, mentor others, and improve core systems. You’re a curious, fast learner, obsessed with automation, who enjoys the detective work of figuring out what’s happening when things go wrong!

What we're looking for

  • You are:
    • An excellent team player
    • A positive and happy voice in a team
    • Curious and self-motivated
  • You have demonstrable experience in:
    • Building and delivering features for business-critical applications
    • Cloud Services
    • Containerization (we use docker and deploy to Kubernetes clusters)
    • Automated testing
    • CI/CD (Jenkins, Azure DevOps, TeamCity, or similar)
    • Managing production infrastructure (Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM, etc)
    • Monitoring production services (Grafana, Datadog, ElasticSearch, etc)
    • Designing scalable services

Nice to Have:

  • C# and Dotnet Core
  • Actor Systems
  • Event Sourcing
  • Pub/Sub Messaging (we use NATS)
  • Service Mesh (envoy)
