• Provide transparent communications on project status and risks to stakeholders to ensure they are properly informed of any impacts from upcoming releases
• Partner with multiple leaders to understand and balance priorities, requirements and critical timelines
• Collaborate with producers and other disciplines on the development teams needed to complete initiatives. Communicate frequently and proactively to highlight progress, risks, and mitigations
• Manage both internal and external resources as they pertain to resource allocation, budget forecasts and actuals
• Leave things better than you find them, with an eye toward continual process development and improvements based on the needs of the teams/initiatives/product

What we're looking for

• Previous experience working in a production role where you've managed cross-functional teams in creating and delivering complex projects
• Deep understanding of game or platform development, software development process, and project management practices
• Strong project management and organizational skills
• A good knowledge of light-touch production systems that allow teams to thrive without unnecessary overhead
• Have the ability to communicate with varying levels of stakeholders within your team and throughout the company
