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 an unannounced game for PC and consoles about creating, exploring and the joy of discovery.
This is an opportunity to play a crucial role in our expanding team. Reporting to the company’s co-founders Adam Sibbick, Jonny Hopper and Mike Green, you’ll be working closely with them 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 usual minutia of problems and issues that occur during production.
FROM DAY ONE WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO…
Jump enthusiastically into understanding the scope of the game and break it down into a manageable schedule.
Work alongside the rest of the team and start getting a feel for what assistance and resources are required, and when.
IN SIX MONTHS YOU WILL BE…
A central, supportive member of our small team, helping to keep everything on track.
Open and candid about the state of the project and the schedule, helping us to maintain high quality whilst staying on schedule and in budget, but not to the detriment of the team.
Running daily catch ups, maintaining task, backlog and bug lists.
Organising fortnightly sprint reviews / show and tells with the team, with a written report of progress to be sent to relevant stakeholders.
The ideal candidate would…
Be a great communicator and people person.
Develop schedules and resource requirements to achieve the project’s vision.
Build strong relationships within the team, keep everyone talking to one another and help inspire them to reach targeted deliverables.
Anticipate the key risks of the project in advance, and recommend plans of action to handle the unknown issues that arise during development.
Have excellent knowledge of project management software and other task tracking tools.
Have experience managing a project across multiple platforms.
Have experience working with teams of 20+ people,
In-depth knowledge of the games industry and production processes.
Ability to manage competing priorities and resources.
A passion for making games and an understanding of technical and creative concepts.
Production experience on a ‘live’ service.
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 and so we’d really like to have you here with us onsite. We offer competitive wages and we are an actively 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!
