Production Leader, External Development

Requisition ID:


Job Description:

We are looking for a Production Leader to tank some of the games that we think you might know using an approach which focuses on building our external development capabilities and leading a team to push the boundaries of some of our games.

Our backgrounds may be diverse, but we all share the same passion: bringing the world together through epic experiences. We value communication and collaboration, and most importantly, we want to get things done and try things that seem impossible at first blush. Don’t apply if you are afraid to fail, and more importantly, don’t apply if you aren’t willing to try. If you have a genuine passion for production, helping teams get things done, and making great games, this may be your opportunity.

This is a new opportunity reporting to an executive leader. Your potential future would have direct reports: it will be a small crew, but an opportunity to help build the crew. Make no mistake: it will be challenging, require honest dialog and smart thinking, and most importantly it will be fun and rewarding. Experience with humane, compelling leadership, the ability to think creatively while crafting substance from ether, and a background in producing modern pipelines are greatly valued. A comprehensive understanding of multi-team, multi-site development is an absolute must.

The Role

Working with discipline leadership and other producers, you’ll be driving the development process for various teams and initiatives. You have prior experience in game development and a keen knowledge of how each discipline operates and interacts. Self-direction and follow-up skills are necessary, as is the ability to anticipate production issues and find effective solutions. Excellent communication and project management skills are critical along with a passion for expanding external development. Swift and consistent follow-up and constant drive for efficiency are key.


What will it take to be successful in this role? An intellectual and emotional understanding of the complexities of developing a triple A title along with a genuine enthusiasm for the creative process. Deep experience working with and coordinating multiple teams across multiple studios and time zones. We’re always looking for people who are game developers first and who can help us become even better than we are today. Previous experience we’d like to see:
