Treehouse Games is looking for amazing people who are excited to create games that are the best way for friends to spend time together

As the Associate Producer, you will work closely with the Lead Producer to learn all things about the team and our development process. You will work directly with the team day-to-day, ensuring they have clear priorities for their work and are unblocked from completing it. You will act as a conduit between the individuals and teams to help ensure healthy and happy collaboration. Over time, you will take over and run many of the agile development rituals on the team, working with the Lead Producer to communicate the goals and priorities for the team and work with the developers directly to ensure they are planning their work effectively. 

Our goal is to build a supportive team of strong communicators and area specialists that love to collaborate across discipline lines to create exciting experiences for friends to enjoy together. We are committed to remote working and already have team members across North America.

Who You Are

  • Proficient at working in a fully remote team environment. We balance synchronous and asynchronous communication across multiple time zones to get things done.
  • Proactive at identifying areas of concern and independently acting on it. We're a small team and the impact of each person is huge!
  • Considerate with feedback in both directions. We work to always receive feedback gracefully, deliver feedback constructively, and have discussions and disagreements respectfully.
  • Persistent at maintaining a healthy perspective about the larger game we’re building together. We do the extra work to value every team member's point of view and we’re looking for fresh perspectives, especially of those from diverse backgrounds.
  • Excited to work on cooperative games with a focus on fun experiences with friends. We're making games we want to play.

About 
Treehouse Games

We’re a development studio focused on building collaborative games for a growing, global audience of players who use games as their favorite way to hang out together. Based in Los Angeles, Treehouse is venture-backed and built by industry veterans - half of the team comes from gaming powerhouses including Microsoft, Riot Games and the original DotA mod, and half comes from successful indie startups like Sirvo Studios and Industrial Toys.

We named our studio “Treehouse” because the world needs games that create an inviting hangout space where players spend time with their friends. We focus on the player impact we create through our work, we value feedback from players, and we believe the best teams are built on a culture of trust and respect.

Treehouse is making cooperative experiences that are all about quality time spent with friends. Games that do this well today see amazing engagement among audiences all around the world - we’re looking for diverse candidates with unique backgrounds to bring these and other meaningful perspectives to our team.

Treehouse Games is looking for amazing people who are excited to create games that are the best way for friends to spend time together.
