Are You Up To The Challenge?

As a Senior Game Producer you’ll be taking games from conception through to launch, using your industry knowledge and great project management skills to help external development teams produce the best games.

 Your Team Mates

The PC and Console department (PCC) is a totally autonomous publishing operation at Kwalee and we are relatively small by design. Everyone working in the PCC dept over 7 functional teams are subject matter experts and you will work closely with all of them, collaborating to get the best results for our signed games.

What Does The Job Actually Involve?

  • Liaising regularly with our external development partners to ensure the games track to schedule and are released on time and to budget;

  • Coordinating with the Marketing teams (Product Marketing, Community, Social Media and Influencer & Media)  to ensure required promotional assets are produced, content is appropriate and all deadlines are met;

  • Making realistic and accurate contributions to the game analysis and assessment (‘Due Diligence’) process;

  • Providing regular feedback on the games we publish and helping developers create the best games they can.

Your Hard Skills

  • 5+ years experience in a production management role within a games studio with at least 2 shipped games;

  • Strong project management skills;

  • A charismatic, energetic character who can direct and inspire;

  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal;

  • Outstanding organisational and time management skills;

  • Strong understanding of PC & console games including game design and KPIs;

  • Experience of agile project management methodologies;

  • A “self-starter” mentality;

  • A strong interest in PC and console games, playing them regularly.

Kwalee has grown fast in recent years but we’re very much a family of colleagues. We welcome people of all ages, races, colours, beliefs, sexual orientations, genders and circumstances, and all we ask is that you collaborate, work hard, ask questions and have fun with your team and colleagues. 

We don’t like egos or arrogance and we love playing games and celebrating success together. If that sounds like you, then please apply.
