**This position has been closed.**

Choice Provisions is looking for a qualified Producer to round out the team. We are looking for someone to manage schedules, interface with our various development partners and be a bridge of communication both among the internal team as well as to/from our external partners and collaborators.

You will be working directly under the studio’s founders and will be given substantial management responsibilities that until now have fallen on them. Your job is essentially to free up the founders so that their creative visions can be realized by an efficiently managed team.

This is a 10-12 month contract that may or may not require a full-time commitment. If you are the right person for the job, but cannot make full-time work, that’s not necessarily a deal breaker.

After the term of the contract, there is the possibility of a full-time permanent position as well.


Responsibilities

  • Manage multiple projects of various sizes at various stages of development
  • Establish and enforce development priorities/milestones
  • Identify project risks and opportunities that the development team may not be aware of
  • Be the voice of the development team to external partners
  • Schedule and manage various logistical necessities of game development (QA, localization, VO, etc.)
  • Lead team-wide meetings regarding project planning, status updates, etc.

Required Skills and Experience

  • Have shipped at least two games
  • 3+ years production experience
  • Proficiency with the MS Office Suite of products and Google Docs—especially spreadsheets
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Excellent communication skills that can work with a wide range of personality types
  • Experience with story-based project management and goals
  • A calm and collected, but light-hearted and fun personality that can handle the challenges of video game production with grace
  • A deep understanding of video games across a wide range of genres

Bonus Points

  • Experience with Choice Provisions’ library of games
  • Experience submitting games to first party partners (Nintendo, Sony, MicrosoN, Apple)
  • A video-game-industry-related college degree
  • Understanding of the Unity game engine
  • Able to work core hours based on the Pacific Time Zone
