Job description

Production Director


Supermassive Games - Guildford, UK

Supermassive Games are looking for a Production Director to join their team to work on multiple exciting new projects! In this role, you will support the growth of the studio and their ambition of their current development portfolio.

This is not a typical production role (if there is such a thing!) and they need people who understand that a great manager works for their team, not the other way round.

As a Production Director who is strategic and tactical, you will have an oversight for all products developed with the team from live ops to mobile target market. You will provide expert management, support, and guidance to Producers and the games for which they are responsible.

Your role and responsibilities will include...

  • Planning, staffing and other expense requirements for budgetary approval
  • Defining teams, roles, and structure, and evaluate candidates for new positions, making hiring decisions for critical roles
  • Arranging, collaborating, and providing appropriate governance over external partners and suppliers of services
  • Ensuring that the agreed goals for each product meet (or ideally, exceed) expectations in all respects, visually, narratively, functionally, and commercially during concept, design, and production phases
  • Devising, implementing, and managing strategies and process for successful live deployment and lifetime support for customer-centric services
  • Considering which projects need further support for them to succeed and find ways to provide that support
  • Working closely with others to develop the portfolio of commercially viable products offered by the group, whether these are developed internally or externally
  • Collaborating with other Producers and Directors on improving methods, processes, and product features that contribute to efficiency and/or quality improvements in the games being developed
  • Seeking out internal and external creative expertise and solutions on behalf of the Senior Producers and their teams

For this role, you'll need...

  • An understanding of the context of games development
  • A track record previously working as part of one or more game development teams
  • To be fanatical about details and meticulously organised
  • Familiarity with a variety of project management and bug tracking software (e.g., Jira, DevTrack, Trello, etc.)
  • In-depth knowledge of Excel
  • A passion for games

Bonus points if you have...

  • Experience in cross-discipline team management
  • Delivered for mobile and/or live service games

Just some of the benefits of working with Supermassive Games include...

  • Making big games with small teams
  • Quarterly Profit-related Bonus Scheme
  • 25 days annual leave
  • Pension and life assurance
  • Social events - including a large summer party
  • Constantly improving tools and workflow so you can focus on creativity
  • Fast decision-making, allowing good ideas to flourish
  • A supportive, inclusive and friendly team culture
  • A focus on work-life balance
  • Working on the cutting edge - making innovative and immersive games

Supermassive Games strongly believe in people taking ownership, responsibility, and working together as teams to solve problems, achieve goals and deliver working software is critical to their continued success.
