The World of Warcraft team is looking for a Producer to join our experimental platform group and help craft the future of Warcraft! Producers help create, prioritize, and execute our development plans for new game features and changes to the tools we use to make World of Warcraft.

In this role, you will be collaborating with folks across the team, from associates to directors, and with every discipline on World of Warcraft. We need someone who can be a strong partner to everyone and deliver improvements to systems and processes that will support World of Warcraft development for years to come. If you are an expert in bringing ambiguity to fruition with a sense of urgency, and ready to work alongside a team of the best artists, engineers, and designers on the planet, we will be thrilled to see your application!

COVID-19 Hiring Update: We’ve transitioned to a work-from-home model and we’re continuing to interview and hire during this time. This role is expected to begin as a remote position. We understand each person’s circumstances may be unique and will work with you to explore possible interim options.

What you will do:

  • Coordinate project plans and the day-to-day work for our experimental team

  • Schedule project milestones and deliverables, and communicate as the team makes progress

  • Clarify project requirements and drive agreement between teams or individuals with conflicting priorities

  • Spot and mitigate risks to our plans and milestones, and help the team clear blocking issues

  • Identify development challenges and their solutions

  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the World of Warcraft development team

  • Inform decisions, together with team leadership, about process, commitments, and development priorities

  • Support, motivate, and celebrate our team, our work, and our successes

  • Facilitate group activities from regular team meetings to ad-hoc brainstorming sessions

To succeed, you must have:

  • Strong self-direction

  • Tenacious critical thinking skills

  • A calm and deliberate demeanor

  • An understanding of the power of positive mentality in the face of adversity

  • Persuasive communication and people skills

  • Experience in a co-development/remote setting

  • Experience in an agile-driven multi-discipline team

  • Good strategies and instincts for working with a wide range of styles and personalities

  • Well-ordered approaches to defining project requirements, work, and timelines

  • Comfort working in ambiguous areas where learning and adaptability are key skills

  • The courage to admit when you do not know something, and the confidence to ask “why?”

We’re also interested in hearing about:

  • If you have experience working with Jira and Confluence

  • Any complex projects you have tracked before, and what support you gave your team

  • Process improvement wins you have driven on other teams

  • Whether you have development-level experience from a previous project
