  • Coordinating the QA and testing effort during production, closed and open beta, through launch and ongoing in the live game environment.

  • Contributing to the production process and helping refine production pipelines, including grooming and maintaining backlogs.

  • Act as product knowledge base for the entire team.

  • Communicating to individual team members and contributors in various departments, fellow producers, and management on the status of live issues, tasks, features, and projects.

  • Manage relationships with 3rd parties as needed.

What We Seek:

  • Enthusiasm for video games and games production.

  • Deep knowledge and love for our IPs and similar products.

  • Proficiency with Jira or similar production-tracking software. 

What You’ll Get

  • We offer world-class benefits including comprehensive health insurance and access to a national network of doctors - and this is just scratching the surface of what our employees receive.
