Hardsuit Labs

Description

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, skilled, and highly organized Producer to join the Project Lava development team. We are hard at work co-developing a fast-paced, competitive, and cooperative multiplayer game and we need your help!

You will represent and advocate for your development team, providing support for it (and others) within our studio. You will achieve this by scheduling tasks, tracking dependencies, removing roadblocks, coordinating with our co-development partner, and fostering happy, productive people all the while making sure they stay on the right track.

YOU
You know how to rally the troops, deal with multiple stakeholders, and are unafraid to have uncomfortable conversations. You can say “no” when you know it's right and you’re able to push back when needed. Above all, everything you do comes from a place of honesty and integrity. You’re a master at facilitating communications and like a shark sensing fear, you can spot potential miscommunication from miles away and dive in to set the facts straight. You’ll bring concerns to the surface, you’ll wave red flags, and you’ll get people together to work out solutions. You’re cool, level-headed, even keeled, and not afraid to dig deep. You’re able identify root causes and use strong communication skills to implement solutions that keep issues from recurring. You keep the horses looking forward when the cart is on fire. In short - you get sh*t done.
