  • Produce weekly reports, highlighting the progress of the project and any problems, risks or issues.
  • Liaise with production, publishing and QA teams to create and maintain our post-launch submission and release schedule.
  • Prepare any materials needed for submission to first parties in accordance with the submission schedule.
  • Coordinate with other departments to ensure timely delivery of any project-critical assets ahead of product releases.
  • Assist the customer support and QA teams to troubleshoot and diagnose any issues reported by our customers.
  • Provide reports on key stats and metrics throughout the launch and post-launch phase to measure key performance indicators.
  • Update and manage any processes required to support the game during the post-launch phase.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Previous experience in a games development environment 
  • Scheduling and project management experience
  • Excellent decision making skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to manage time and work under pressure and to tight deadlines
  • Strong problem-solving skills
  • Be self-motivated and able to motivate others
  • Educated to A level standard or equivalent 
  • Customer service focused

In return you will receive:

  • Flexible working hours designed to fit around your life
