Current and past clients include Oculus, Madison Square Garden, Double Fine, Stoic, Telltale, and KIXEYE where we worked on games like Grim Fandango Remastered, The Banner Saga, Game of Thrones, and War Commander.

As the first dedicated Project Manager in the studio, this is an opportunity to collaborate with our leadership team to both establish and implement processes that will help take us to the next level of growth.

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Ability to manage multiple simultaneous small projects.
  • High-level knowledge of how the primary game development disciplines operate - engineering, art, design, and QA.
  • Experience with iterative software development task planning and scope estimation on the micro scale - 1-2 weeks at a time.
  • Experience with high-level schedule planning on the macro scale - 6+ months in the future.

Responsibilities

  • Organize, update, and maintain iterative software project schedules.
  • Define project management best practices studio-wide.
  • Work with individual team members on a continuous basis to ensure they are able to work efficiently.
