Greensky Games was founded with one mission: bring VR into the mainstream by building games that couldn’t possibly exist on any other platform.

We believe the immersiveness and physicality of VR will fundamentally change what a "game" is, bringing gaming to a massive audience, far beyond what’s now considered the gaming market.

As a Producer, you will be in charge of production and project management for a team of 10 developers and artists. Initially you will manage SWARM, which launched to rave reviews in April 2021, and eventually you will take a pivotal role on our next major title.

We’re a fully remote team. You can be located anywhere in a timezone between PST-EST. We've found that large time zone differences can be tough in a small team. You don't need to be in the US.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead the creative and technical teams responsible for game development, all the way from prototyping to Live-Ops.
  • Have an in depth knowledge of the game, its design, mechanics, and content.
  • Help establish project and sprint priorities with the game director.
  • Act as the scrum master for sprint planning and review meetings.
  • Work closely with production, art, design, engineering leads & QA to drive quality.
  • Strive to maintain and improve team wellbeing, morale and cohesion.
  • Be the point of contact for external production teams such as QA, porting and localization.
  • Be an active participant in design reviews, with particular regard to quality and schedule.
  • Ensure the team has the best organizational structure, processes, and practices that allow them to produce high quality work efficiently and on schedule.
  • Drive, create, and refine the game experience to achieve and/or exceed the desired quality standard‍.
  • Work closely with the game director to ensure the vision for the game is accomplished.
  • Build and grow your team of game developers, technical artists, concept artists, 3D artists, and sound designers.

Required Skills and Experience:

  • 5+ years of experience in Game Production or working in a production role where you've managed cross-functional teams in the creation and delivery of complex projects.
  • Shipped two or more games on different platforms.
  • Deep understanding of game development, software development process, and project management practices.
  • Solid project management skills that allow you to deliver on scope, performance, and budget without compromising vision and final quality.
  • Have the ability to communicate with varying levels of stakeholders, within your team and throughout the company.
  • Ability to make the trade-off decisions necessary to effectively balance short-term needs and long-term vision.
  • Interest and/or insatiable passion for all things VR.
  • The capacity manage, motivate and work with a team under pressure and adapt to change.

Extras:

  • Experience producing multiplayer games
  • Experience with Oculus Quest and other VR headsets
  • Experience with JIRA
  • Experience working on a fully remote team
  • Experience working at an indie studio

About Us

Greensky Games is the developer behind SWARM, a fast-paced, arcade-style grapple shooter where you really feel like Spiderman, with a gun. Only possible in VR. Greensky Games’ mission is to bring VR into the mainstream by building games that couldn’t possibly exist on any other platform: intense, physical, flow-state inducing.

SWARM is a fast-paced, arcade-style grapple shooter, with quick sessions, bright colorful worlds and globally competitive leaderboards that will take you back to the glory days of arcade games.

Armed with just a grappling hook and your handy pistols, you’ll be plunged into a flow state as you grapple, shoot and battle your way to the heart of the SWARM before it’s too late. Twitch reactions won’t be enough to carry you through, you’ll need to think strategically and plan your next move to stay alive. Intense. Demanding. Exhilarating.
