Guildford, United Kingdom
Permanent | Full Time
Hello, we’re Glowmade! We’re a small, exciting company and the goal of our games is to unlock people's imagination and help them express themselves in wonderful, fun ways. Right now we’re busy building a new multiplayer cooperative game with an ambitious creative wrapper around it. We can’t say too much, but if you can imagine Jim Henson’s Labyrinth mashed up with Wrestlemania, then you’ll be on the right track!
This is an opportunity to play a crucial role in our expanding team. Reporting to the company's CEO, Jonny Hopper, you’ll be working closely with him and the rest of the team as you help take responsibility for resources, scheduling, and completion of deliverables. You’ll be involved at an early stage of the project, taking us from pre-production to completion. You will need to excel in managing both the high-level tasks as well as dealing with all the minutiae of issues that occur on a day-to-day basis.
From day one we would like you to...
Jump enthusiastically into understanding the ambition of the game, define the scope and break it down into a manageable schedule.
Work alongside the rest of the leads and the team and start getting a feel for what resources and assistance is required and when.
In six months you will be...
The owner of the project schedule, including resourcing, tracking, and risks.
A central, supportive member of our small team, helping to keep everything moving forward towards the project schedule and goals.
Provide insights of the process used on the project and make recommendations on how to improve efficiency.
Aligning expectations across multiple stakeholders, both inside and outside of the studio.
Open and candid about the state of the project and the schedule, helping us to maintain high quality, but not to the detriment of the team.
The ideal candidate will…
Have excellent knowledge of Jira and other task tracking tools.
Have to experience managing a project across multiple platforms.
Have experience managing projects on teams of 20+ people, a great communicator, and a people person.
Experience on a ‘live’ service.
A few more bits:
This is an opportunity for you to make a significant contribution not only to the game but to our team and the company. Everyone at Glowmade has a voice, and it’s important to us that you feel empowered and are given the time and space to use it.
We’re based in Guildford, UK. This role will be onsite post-pandemic. We offer competitive wages and we are an active equal opportunities employer. If all of the above sounds exciting and you think you can fill this pivotal role, please get in touch. No agencies, please!
Keep Calm and waka waka...
