• Focus on Users – Be an active customer advocate and ensure live issues affecting end users are being followed up on and resolved.
• Be Flexible – You will be supporting multiple teams that are developing a wide range of technologies. You will need to switch contexts depending on the opportunities at hand.
• Ensure the team has the best organizational structure, processes, and practices that allow them to produce high quality work efficiently and on time.

What we're looking for
• Experience working in an internal production role where you've managed development teams in the creation and delivery of a complex software product.
• Deep understanding of game development, software development process, and project management practices.
• Experience in console and/or PC development, including understanding technical requirements and supporting adoption of new platform features.
• Strong organizational skills and attention to detail.
• Demonstrated technical aptitude; Strong preference for applicants with development (programming, technical) and/or game development experience, with an Engine focus (eg. UE or competing/proprietary engines).
• Experience in an environment where you had to exhibit amazing problem-solving skills daily, viewing each new problem as an opportunity for success.
• Self-starter, you approach challenges creatively and methodically, seeing them through to final resolution.
• Ability to communicate with varying levels of stakeholders, within your team and throughout the company.
• Ability to drive high velocity, high impact development cycles, balancing out short-term needs and long-term vision.
