Lead Producer

Blizzard’s newest game team is looking for someone to join its ranks as lead producer. With Hearthstone, Blizzard has revived its tradition of creating small and nimble game teams and we are following in those footsteps.  As part of our team, you will join in the leadership of a small but mighty band of developers and exert your talents to help craft our processes, organization, goals and execution.

 

We can’t tell you exactly what the game is yet, but trust us, it’s awesome.

 

Ideally, you have passion for and experience in wrangling both small scrappy teams and large multi-discipline juggernauts. You enjoy getting your hands dirty in day-to-day game production as well as thinking strategically in solving high level challenges. Maybe you even enjoy personally jumping into databases or modeling packages from time to time. You speak the languages of art, engineering, game design and business – some fluently, the others enough to be dangerous effective. In short, you understand the science and appreciate the art of making amazing games, and have made it all come together in the shipping of world-class products.

 

Responsibilities

  • Project manages all aspects of the game.
  • Provide leadership, guidance and execution to ensure both quality and timeliness of objectives and milestones.
  • Champion the game to all external departments to build transparency, knowledge and passion for the project.
  • Communicate with executive leadership on status, risks, and needs of the project.
  • Do whatever it takes for the game to be great, the team to be healthy, and the execution to be flawless.

Requirements

  • A minimum of 3 years’ experience as a senior / lead producer
  • Experience shipping at least one top quality online title in a senior or lead producer role
  • Experience with the ongoing operation of a game after launch
  • Development experience as an engineer, artist, or designer a plus
  • Able to communicate effectively with engineering, art, design, and business personnel
  • Unrelenting self-motivation and initiative
  • A deep, abiding, and possibly somewhat untoward passion for games
