Ironbelly Studios is in need of a project manager to organize and empower our developers and other aspects of game development. We typically have a number of projects in development at any given time in both Unity and Unreal, for a variety of platforms. You will also be the primary liaison for all the day-to-day, project-related, communication with our clients and so having a keen eye for documentation and reporting is crucial.
Your responsibilities would include:
- Sprint Planning, setup and take down
- Help team leads create and maintain product/project roadmaps.
- Assist in the day-to-day triage of issues between the production (support and operations), testing, and product and development teams.
- Manage projects that require coordination with third parties, including external contractors and partners.
- Managing processes for development teams, including possibly performing the role of a scrummaster in the case of a team/project using scrum-based methodologies.
- Helping both product and engineering teams write specifications and requirements.
- Ensure product consistency by negotiating among the various stakeholders such as programmers who are working on the technical design of a game.
- Conduct research and find innovative ways to complete the technical aspects of a project while providing support to team members.
- Work together with the art director and designer to ensure consistency when setting the technical guidelines to follow for the design of a game.
- Supervise the technical aspects to find areas where product quality might be improved.
- We are currently operating a hybrid remote/colo working model, with core members of our team being here in Montreal while the majority of our folks working off-site. Whilst working together in close proximity is desirable, especially looking to the future, it is not currently a requirement for this role but preference will be given to applicants that are within +7 GMT to -2 GMT
To apply, please send your CV, cover letter and links to an online showreel or portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Project Manager” in the subject line.
