Hello! We’re Maschinen-Mensch, an independent game studio founded in 2014 in Berlin, Germany. We’re also the people behind Codecks, a project management tool for game developers.
Our most recent release is Curious Expedition 2, an award-winning turn-based narrative roguelike available now on Steam and coming to consoles later this year. We're looking for a Producer to help us manage future content updates for the game and later on to work on brand new projects (we’re currently in the prototyping phase for two other games).
2+ years of professional experience as a Producer/Project Manager in games or in software development
Familiarity with agile production methodologies
Fluent in English
Track and report on project milestones
Identify issues to ensure timely notification and action in order to minimize project risk
Triage bug reports and feedback from players
Act as facilitator for daily stand-up meetings, sprint planning meetings, sprint retrospective meetings and sprint demo meetings
Working remotely is possible, but we’re looking for someone who’s able to work and be available online during our core hours of operation 10am to 5pm CEST. If you’re based in Berlin (or willing to relocate) that’s definitely a plus, so that we can eventually work together in person once it’s safer to do so again. Our studio is located at Saftladen, an indie game collective and co-working space for game developers that we co-founded in 2015.
We particularly encourage applications from women, people with disabilities, people of colour, and other groups that are underrepresented throughout the game industry.
