Relic Entertainment, a wholly owned studio of SEGA, is the award winning RTS developer of Homeworld, Dawn of War and Company of Heroes, and we’re on the hunt for a Senior Producer to join our team. As a studio, our role is to create a workplace where people are energized and empowered to not only do their best work but to continually surpass their best. We’ll push you out of your comfort zone to become the best version of you by giving you the ownership and creative freedom to solve our most challenging problems.

As an integral part of our franchise and studio, you will manage your team’s day to day development activity. You will also be challenged to ensure your team is working effectively and efficiently, and that your project budgets yield the highest output toward the end goal. You are the both the “how” and “when” of the project. You will be challenged to support your team in coming up with more effective ways of working, constantly challenging them to make the best games, and encouraging them to laugh & have fun along the way too!

As one of our Senior Producers, you will…
-Maintain the overall vision of the product with your technical leads – ensuring that your team is always working towards the same goals
-Define the high-level project plan (including key milestones and staffing requirements) and own day-to-day project management
-Be the go-to person for your team, studio management, and partners for everything to do with your project
-Partner with your Executive Producer to monitor financial planning and spending, looking to optimize costs and efficiencies throughout development
-Partner with your technical leaders (design, art, programming, animation audio & QA) to ensure communication is open and clear
-Manage individual and team performance, including motivating, mentoring and empowering your team to achieve results
-Support your team with their career goals – to us this means honest conversations, 1:1’s, constructive feedback and a commitment to always be better (#twowaystreet)
-Ensure conversations always happen – even the hard ones – and know the best time to have them is right now
-Encourage an open, honest and positive team environment; create a team culture that constructively gives and receives feedback, has fun, and makes the studio a better place!

We’re looking for someone who has…
-7+ years of experience in game production
-4+ years of people management or leadership experience, with experience creating high performing teams
-Completed at least 1 game production cycle in a senior production role
-The ability to tell the difference between real problems and noise – you will be challenged to craft solutions, solve problems and minimize noise!
-A deep sense of ownership over results, their own development and the development of the team
-Exceptional project management experience, including the use of tools like VersionOne, JIRA, Post-itTM notes and/or walls…
A passion for playing and making games!

It's a bonus if you have...
-Experience working with PC or console
-Experience making AAA games
-Experience managing external development services – like, QA or localization

What’s in it for you?
In addition to working on AAA games and learning a ton, we offer top-notch benefits and perks, including an extensive extended health benefits plan, retirement savings plan, and support for any required relocation or immigration efforts. On top of that, we realize it takes world-class people to make world-class games so we offer competitive total compensation packages.
