Ensure stakeholders have proper visibility into development and are informed of any changes that may impact their teams.
• Proactively Seek Resolution - Strong ability to identify problems, and propose solutions, for your team BEFORE they become roadblocks; keeping a finger on the pulse of dependency deliverables, tech initiatives, and the project's high-level needs. Own the outcome of your area, and never wait to see if someone else will clear your path.
• Flexible Multitasker - Ability to handle multiple large production needs within your department or across small strike teams. Understanding how to identify and break down prioritizations, and keeping up strong communication via multiple outlets; IE email, slack, meetings, and development roadmaps.
• Facilitate Development Operations - Schedule team meetings, run standups, as well as play tests while providing actionable notes and follow-up to attendees. JIRA task/bug entry, triage, and tracking for team

What we're looking for
• Deep understanding of game development, software development process, or project management practices is a plus
• Ability to drive high velocity, high impact development cycles, balancing out short-term needs and long-term vision
• Self-starter, you approach challenges creatively and methodically, seeing them through to final resolution
• Strong experience in gameplay production, where you have worked directly with gameplay teams
• Strong project management and organizational skills
• Demonstrated ability to work under pressure to tight deadlines and lead teams to perform above and beyond
• Experience in an environment where you had to exhibit amazing problem-solving skills daily, viewing each new problem as an opportunity for success
• Have the ability to communicate with varying levels of stakeholders, within your team and throughout the company
• You're user-focused, passionate, scrappy, solutions-focused, and innovative. These traits equal success at Epic and influence everything we do
• A specific interest and familiarity with Fortnite and LEGO is a plus!
