Producer

PerBlue is looking for a talented Producer to join our team. We make massively multiplayer, free-to-play, mobile games played by millions of people around the world.

The Producer role is focused on managing the daily operations of a game team. You’ll work directly with and report to a Product Owner (PO).

  • Quickly identify when development issues arise, diagnose their cause and implement solutions to keep the product and team on track
  • Make valuable individual contributions to the product (via design, QA, UX, analysis, etc.)

 

Requirements and Qualifications:

  • 2+ years in a game producer role (free-to-play mobile preferred but not required)
  • Strong understanding of agile development theory and practice
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal, written, interpersonal)
  • Expertise in a specific product area (e.g. design, analytics, UX, writing, QA, dev, etc.)
  • Experience with mid-core game genres and mechanics (esp. RPG  & strategy)
  • Self motivation, focused on results, and the ability to thrive in a dynamic fast-paced environment
  • Well organized and excel in a highly collaborative environment
