OVERVIEW OF THE COMPANY

FoxNext

We are a collection of enduring brands and iconic, unforgettable characters. We create content for audiences big and small, reaching billions of people every day. Most of all, we are many individuals, each uniquely talented, each a critical piece to our puzzle, who collectively become a power. Desire to thrill and engage? Join us as we engage and inspire.

JOB DESCRIPTION

FoxNext is driving the next generation of entertainment experiences in the areas of virtual and augmented reality, mobile, console and PC games. As a part of Twentieth Century Fox’s newly created division of world-class game development studios, FoxNext has a unique advantage in being able to leverage our expansive collection of Film and Television properties to make immersive, player focused, social games based on these unforgettable worlds and characters. 

Our core game development team have worked together for the better part of 15 years across titles such as Red Alert, Command & Conquer: Generals, The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth, Empires & Allies and Diablo, as well as a host of mobile and strategy titles at EA, Zynga and Kabam. We are currently working on Marvel Strike Force and a title in development based on James Cameron’s Avatar.

At FoxNext Games we are players first and developers second. Our studio was built by passionate game makers dedicated to crafting playful, smart, addictively fun experiences across mobile, console and VR. We believe creativity and quality comes from empowering our developers. We care about accessibility, depth, innovation, and production values… but most of all, we care about our community of players, making player empathy a core value for all of us.

If you are thinking about joining our close-knit team you should love games, be world-class at making them and understand fundamentally that great business results come from great games and loyal players. As a Senior Producer at FoxNext Games you will be expected to facilitate across art, design, and engineering to achieve release goals with an eye toward high quality. You will be accountable for defining clear goals and helping the game team to execute them. You should be passionate about games, empathetic toward the team and have the ability to improve the people around you. Essentially you are prepared to do anything and everything to help the team create great games. If this sounds like you then we are looking to add you to our team.

What We Are Looking For

Our ideal senior producer should understand the quality bar of delivering a good release/feature; completing a checklist of tasks does not make the game fun. This person should be able to proactively make process improvements, communicate goals/risks clearly from top to bottom, drive/reinforce team culture and be able to correct bad practices and behaviors through direct feedback.


 

Responsibilities

  • Run a live release from ideation to launch with a cross-discipline development team.
  • Identify and communicate goals/project risks clearly.
  • Innovate process improvements where necessary.
  • Proactively do whatever is necessary to provide value to your development team.
  • Be a team ambassador for the studio’s development culture.


 

Qualifications

  • Development Management knowledge and experience across multiple methodologies (Scrum, Waterfall, Kanban).
  • Motivated and can work independently with minimal supervision.
  • An affinity and patience for working with creative individuals.
  • An advocate of support-oriented Project Management philosophies suffused with high-levels of pragmatism.
  • Direct experience with JIRA and Perforce, or comparable alternatives.
  • Released games on Apple/Google Play Platforms.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, gender identity, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We will consider for employment qualified applicants with criminal histories consistent with applicable law.
