      WHO WE ARE:

Our studio designed and released award-winning games, such as System Shock 2, BioShock and BioShock Infinite. We are currently working on our next project and would love for you to be part of our team.

      THE CHALLENGE:

      The ideal candidate for the Senior Producer role has owned areas of production for one or more PC and/or console titles in the shooter, RPG or strategy genres. They can construct useful schedules with minimal impact to developers and can drive these schedules while identifying issues before they become problems.

      The candidate must be empathetic with the player, pushing for a quality game experience and translating that drive into efficient and effective pipelines. Experience leading producers is required for this role. The ability to communicate clearly and build lasting relationships within the team is a must.
      The candidate we are looking for is intimately aware of various production methodologies, but also knows when to stray from the beaten path if the situation requires it to get a better outcome.

      • Prepare regular reports on the status of production areas, including recommendations to ensure development goals are satisfied.
      • Proactively identify efficiency issues and dependency problems when encountered and propose and implement solutions for resolution.
      • Understand and communicate issues facing various types of gameplay, artistic and technical considerations in order to identify and drive solutions.
      • Comprehend any changes in scope, priority or direction, and holistically understand and articulate the knock-on effects throughout development.

      QUALIFICATIONS

      • Multiple years of experience as an in-house Producer.
      • Shipped at least one title as part of a development team through all phases of production.
      • Experience leading other producers.
      • Outstanding communications, project management and relationship-building skills.
      • Ability to build and maintain project timelines and milestone documentation, supervising the progress of department milestones and individual tasks against those schedules.
      • Validated experience producing and leading cross-functional creative development teams and resources while meeting quality and schedule goals.
      • Familiarity with traditional production-management techniques.
      • Strong organizational and prioritization skills, attention to detail, process knowledge and ability to multitask.
      • Experience with Microsoft Office (emphasis on Excel), Hansoft, Jira, Confluence and other project-tracking and bug-database software.
      • Passion for narrative first-person shooters a plus.
