Reporting directly to the Studio Director, you'll lead all aspects of the game development process, including schedule and milestone specification and tracking, inter-disciplinary team coordination, sprint methodology, change management based on regular user research data, and ongoing scoping and prioritization of development tasks. You'll also be responsible for building and maintaining positive and productive relationships with our development and publishing partners and ensuring efficient coordination of internal and external development staff. You'll have broad latitude to build, structure, and lead a production team to guide both the development process and live game operations. Because strong collaboration makes the best games, you'll also work closely with all development disciplines to help shape and guide the game holistically through all stages of development.
