K Bros inc is a boutique video game publisher focused on indie, casual and viral titles across Console, PC and mobile platforms. We are looking for a Senior Producer to help forge the future of K Bros games.

As a Senior Producer, you will work closely with designers, artists, programmers, dev relations and influencers to organize and drive the game development and publishing process. A Senior Producer’s number one priority within the development/publishing structure is to make sure the overall business goals are met.

• Working in the trenches with Artists, Designers and Programmers tracking tasks and making sure the developers stay on schedule.
• Evaluate milestone deliveries
• Iterate on and provide feedback to improve the quality of products
• Creatively solve problems that arise during development
• Demo and/or evangelize products as necessary
• Ensure the quality of the game by min/maxing risks and foreseeing potential production pitfalls
• Identify road blockers between teams and raise red flags
• Daily communication with all team members
• Resolve any team issues
• Assign and prioritize tasks in production software

Things we’d love to see:
• Experience working in various established production methodologies.

• Proficient knowledge or practical experience in one of the other gaming disciplines: 3D Art, Game Design, or Programming.
