• Lead a team of Producers and APs to establish long term schedules, milestone definitions, and sprint goals
• Collaborate with production leadership to create and implement the development strategy needed to realize the high-level game vision
• Work with studio directors & leads to facilitate asset creation pipelines in delivering AAA content on time and at quality
• Efficiently communicate with leads and directors to ensure project goals and expectations are clear and realistic
• Collaborate with internal teams on post-launch strategy and asset creation mapping for launch/post-launch campaigns
• Champion team needs around workflow, tools, and pipeline improvements with the various internal (and external) groups
• Establish relationships with our publishing partners to ensure the various development, PR & Marketing needs are identified and communicated to the team

To succeed you will have…

• A problem solver who knows how to identify, assess, and critically think through problems, and who understands when support, not direction, is needed
• A constant communicator that speaks the languages of game development. You keep stakeholders informed about project information and deliver the audience appropriate level of detail
• Collaboration focused, where you look to build bridges, accommodate a wide ranges of requests, and facilitate positive forward momentum
• Customer focused when it comes to players and colleagues. You can anticipate their needs and strive to improve their experience
• A source of motivation and direction for the team to ensure that project goals, objectives, and milestones are achieved under all conditions
• A relationship builder that proactively looks to foster and maintain inclusive, positive, collaborative relationships in the Studio

We'd love it if you also are…
