TLDR:

We're looking for a Game Producer to help us revolutionize gaming by building a mobile RPG game where players can trade items and heroes for real money. 120k players on our waitlist so far. Role includes traditional mobile development and extends into website products (e.g. trading marketplace). Our team has high autonomy, is well funded, has flexible working hours and offers competitive compensation. We want to re-invent the industry and digital ownership, and we want A players to join us. 

 

 

A bit about the role:

Immutable’s Publishing Department has a mission to develop and launch world-changing games which use blockchain. 

We are looking for a Producer to join our team on Guild of Guardians. Guild of Guardians is made for players who want games to be more than just entertainment, and who want to play a free mobile RPG where they can turn their gaming passion into assets by trading heroes and items for real money. 

Your mission is to ensure the on-time and on-budget delivery of the mobile game release and game-related website products (e.g. a trading marketplace, website NFT sales, partnership promotional projects). 

Specifically, you will be responsible for working with a cross-functional team of designers, product lead, engineers and artists to ensure the successful scoping and implementation of these products. This team will be across time-zones and teams (both internal and external). You will be expected to be able to get input from all stakeholders in defining the project scope and making decisions. You should be exceptionally organised and proactive in “getting stuff done”, being capable of solving blockers that come your way. 

If you want a high impact role and if you love unlocking efficiencies, project planning, problem-solving issues and orchestrating complex projects across a range of people and disciplines then we want you to join us!

 

Here’s how you’ll contribute:

  • Managing the workflows and sequencing of game design, game development and art development done by internal and external teams, to ensure the on-quality, on-time and on-budget delivery of work
  • Project management of out-of-game related products such as the marketplace, NFT sales and IP partnership integrations to ensure on-time completion of these projects
  • Coordinating between all stakeholders to get decisions made, unblock issues, create efficiencies, remove inefficiencies and share communications
  • Proactively identifying project risks that affect timeline, sequencing or quality and creating mitigation plans to address
  • Identifying and implementing the most effective project management tools for each task based on the team’s working cadence - such as google sheets, Slack, emails, JIRA, etc
  • Problem-solving issues that will inevitably arise and being proactive and creative in unblocking and resolving these issues

A bit about you:

  • 5+ years project management or producer experience
  • You are comfortable orchestrating complex projects across engineering, art, design and product disciplines, and across multiple timezones
  • You enjoy variety and are willing to work across both game development and out of game products (e.g. website marketplace / NFT sales/blockchain integration)
  • You find that you are always the one taking initiative and being proactive, telling others what resources, input or decisions you need to get stuff done
  • Organisation comes naturally, and you are great at taking actions, assigning clear owners, documenting timeline and next actions and prioritising the backlog
  • You are a clear communicator and the ‘glue’ that holds the team together
  • You solve problems rather than just identifying them and enjoy finding creative ways to resolve issues and achieve your objectives

 

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • Experience as a producer in mobile game development
  • Demonstrated interest in mobile RPGs, blockchain or blockchain games
  • Experience with project management of website-related products

 

Some of the things we can offer you:

  • Competitive salary, plus equity
  • Flexibility to work from home regularly
  • Located near Central Station in Surry Hills with a rooftop
  • Regular, fun social events where we can relax and connect with our teammates
  • We provide you with all the hardware and an additional $750 to set up your new home office
  • A very supportive, fun and progressive environment
  • Perkbox benefits including premium access to calm, an online fitness portal and discounts at major retailers
  • Thousands of courses on Go1, Udemy and Naspers
  • Access to 24/7 counselling service for you and your family

- Write clear, structured design documentation for developers to implement the metagame design
- End-to-end design, validation and implementation of additional metagame systems to be released in the future
- Identify core gameplay loop changes required to facilitate further metagame system changes in the future
- Once the game is live responsible for testing, release, analysis and adjustment of metagame systems to maximise player retention and spend

A bit about you
- 2+ years of industry experience as a game designer working on metagame and systems design
- Prior proven experience in shipping designs
- In-depth knowledge of how metagame, systems and gameplay loops can impact player engagement, retention and spending behaviours
- Knowledge of monetisation in free-to-play game systems
- Capable of using written and verbal skills to take designs from idea stage to sign-off and then to execution
- Able to take full ownership and accountability of outcomes
- Able to logically breakdown problems, present options and evaluate solutions based on goals and criteria
- Able to validate new ideas through research, surveys, prototypes and models
- Strong growth mindset to learning about blockchain and game economies
- Open-minded to ‘novel’ design opportunities which are unlocked due to new technologies

Some extra skills that would be awesome
- Shipped a minimum of 1 free to play game as a designer
- Experience in Gacha, Progression, XP or Battle Pass Designs
- Experience in mid-core games
- Experience with blockchain or blockchain games

Some of the things we can offer you
- Competitive salary, plus equity
- Relocation package or remote working for the right candidate
- Flexibility to work from home regularly
- Located near Central Station in Surry Hills with a rooftop where we hold loads of parties and BBQs (pre-COVID)
- We provide you with all the hardware and an additional $750 to set up your new home office
- Weekly social events and numerous celebrations
- A very supportive, fun and progressive environment
- Perkbox benefits including premium access to calm, an online fitness portal and discounts at major retailers

We are at the early stages of forming our company, and we encourage all of the Immutable family to bring new ideas and suggestions to help us make Immutable one of the best companies in the world!

About Us
In today's world, gamers don't own their digital items. At Immutable, we're all about ownership: using blockchain technology to provide gamers with real and "immutable" ownership, rather than licensing agreements, over the items they've worked so hard to acquire. Powering the world's most popular blockchain games, Immutable builds marketplaces and infrastructure so that game developers can provide better value to their users and introduce free-market economies inside their games.
 
We are backed by top-tier investors, and have millions of dollars in revenue and more than $25m in venture funding. Our first title, Gods Unchained, is already the number one blockchain game in terms of revenue and assets: we’ve actually sold more in-game assets than all other blockchain games put together. We do a ton of R&D in this space as well - we’re one of the world’s leading experts on the application of this technology to games. Because of this, we are well-positioned to leverage our first-mover advantage and make true ownership of game assets go mainstream.

$100bn was spent on in-game items last year. $0 went to players. We believe that games should provide more than just entertainment value for the time and money invested.

Who we are

Our unique platform-as-as-service enables game developers to easily create and operate marketplaces where players can then buy, sell and trade “in-game assets” (e.g., skins, weapons and tools) with each other. By leveraging the Ethereum Blockchain, for the first time ever, players have true ownership and control over their in-game assets.

We are backed by top-tier investors including Naspers Ventures, Galaxy Digital, Apex Capital and Coinbase. With US$15m raised in venture funding, and over US$6m in revenue from our genesis sale we are very well positioned to leverage our first-mover advantage globally and make ownership of in-game assets go mainstream.

Our first title, Gods Unchained, is already the number one blockchain game in terms of players, revenue and secondary asset trading. In fact, Gods Unchained has issued more in-game assets than all other blockchain games, put together.. More games are set to join the platform in 2020.
