  • Communicate development status to stakeholders
  • Identify, communicate, and solve roadblocks and bottlenecks, ideally preventing them before they occur
  • Write detailed and thorough tasks for the engineering and tech art teams, ensuring that all dependencies and requirements are documented
  • Assist in writing feature documentation, scoping features, and writing test plans

    Who you are:
    • 5+ years of experience as a engineer or technical producer in game or interactive software development, or some combination of equivalent experience
    • At least one full development cycle on an AA or AAA game on current or last generation consoles, shepherding it through preproduction up to launch
    • At least one title in a production capacity
    • Excellent organization and communication skills in both written and verbal mediums
    • Previous experience working in rapid development cycles and iterating based on feedback
    • Knowledge of programming languages and engineering pipelines for game development, able to identify missing information in tickets and call out risks and technical considerations
    • Experience working with distributed teams and co-dev partners
    • Comfortable with Google suite or MS Office, project management software (Jira, TeamGantt) and version control (Perforce)

      Bonus points:
      • Prior work in Unreal Engine 4
      • Shipped multiplayer titles or work on Live-Ops titles
      • Ability to work a flexible schedule as needed in order to support a distributed team
