Development Director

When it comes to putting things in order, you pride yourself on your exceptional organizational skills. Your ability to work with key stakeholders across disciplines is amplified with your interpersonal skills. You are a master in conflict resolution through open communication, and excel in a team environment where you get to take them from good to great!

Does that sound like you? We are looking for a Development Director to join our newly formed game team. You would be working closely with the team and its Game Lead, always maintaining an accurate view on how the project is doing in terms of schedule and scope.

You will contribute by:

  • Creating and maintaining the production plan, while constantly identifying project risks and proactively working to develop mitigation strategies; escalating issues to leadership as necessary
  • Fostering relationships and working closely with game team to keep the team fully informed and focused, and that any requirements are met
  • Collaborating with external partners and publishers on the creation and tracking of project milestones, priorities and overall schedule
  • Going beyond your job description to do what it takes!

Your exact job description will depend on your actual skills, as we are more interested in getting the right people than matching a specific bullet point list.
