Game Producer, Helsinki


I'm moving back to London in the summer so I need someone to take my job here in Helsinki. For the last year I've been working at Sulake, an interactive entertainment company specialising in games that are community-driven, readily accessible and easy to play. Their main product is Habbo Hotel but they're extending to mobile games, an animation series, and new titles.

Here's the official description...

Game Producer/Project Manager

The Job:
You will be responsible for leading a game development team in Helsinki, reporting to Sulake’s Vice President of New Products.

You should have:

  • 4-6 years experience of developing successful web communities and/or games, with at least 2 years at a senior level
  • Confidence leading multi-disciplinary teams of at least 15 people, and managing external agencies and subcontractors
  • Substantial client handling experience
  • Some experience of product operations – QA, reporting and player support
  • An interest in multiplayer games
  • Fluent English

    You will:

  • Oversee the creative and technical development of the game
  • Lead a multi-disciplinary development team
  • Act as the daily point of contact for the publisher
  • Capture the publisher's requirements and keep abreast of industry trends and user research
  • Define the project plan and milestones, and manage changes to the specifications and schedule
  • Establish and refine the game development process, with a focus on encouraging collaboration and best practice
  • Oversee documentation and the QA process
  • Identify, track and report on risks and issues
  • Co-ordinate with other departments, e.g. technical operations and community management

    My team rocks, so I want to make sure they get the producer they deserve. If you're interested, get in touch and I'll give you the lowdown. (You could also just apply now.).
