  • Manage project production and collaborate with all departments to ensure a shared understanding of project design, constraints, and milestones 
  • Prioritise the focus and control the scope of the project so that the teams can successfully deliver high quality work
  • Identify and problem solve when scope, deadlines or quality are not going to hit targets & help teams to reorganise early and often so surprises are minimised
  • Facilitate clear and consistent communication within teams and external stakeholders (e.g. calling meetings, taking minutes, or updating project documentation)
  • Develop and maintain project plans, timelines, and schedules 
  • Maintain Jira and documentation so that roadmaps, issues, and releases are defined and up to date
  • Identify and remedy areas where process and procedures can be improved to increase productivity, clear communication, and/or quality output
  • Be a strong advocate for the quality of our games as well as the wellbeing of our teams

  • Advanced communication skills and experience working with all levels within an organisation, in addition to external stakeholders
  • Experience of using task management tools such as Jira
  • Experience working with spreadsheets
  • Enthusiasm for games and a good sense of humour!



  • Scrum Master certification
  • Project management certification
  • Experience working in other disciplines
  • Just because we’re calling out for a Producer, doesn’t mean we aren’t extremely interested in hearing about any particular interests you have that may contribute positively to our studio!
