Producer, Strategic Initiatives
Blizzard Entertainment | Irvine CA 92602 USA | Full Time | Posted: 11/21/2012
Have you extinguished the Firelord and dethroned the Lich King? Do you rage when someone successfully 6-pools you? Does the mere sight of your loot-bedecked barbarian terrify the Lord of Terror? Are you smart, creative, and organized, and do you have an unrelenting drive to get shit done? If so, Blizzard Entertainment wants you to join our strategic initiatives team.
Our group specializes in helping Blizzard Entertainment think about, and execute on ways to evolve our game development organization and to design, test, and implement new ideas. This means that in any given month you could be working with game-development leadership on development-wide processes, theory crafting business models, researching best practices on a variety of cool topics, and brainstorming ideas on how to make Blizzard Entertainment a better place to work. The tasks may change, but our goal every day is to make Blizzard Entertainment even better than it was the day before.
Our ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of our games, an ability to play nice with others, and an unquenchable eagerness to continue learning and growing. We want strong thinkers who have a knack for identifying the best way to slay a wide range of challenges, and the drive to then commence with the slaying.
If you’re looking for a well-defined role, this is not the job for you. If you want to make a big impact and think that we can be smart about our organization and business without becoming soulless demonspawn, then you might just be a perfect fit. Think you have what it takes? Let us know.
