The Sr. Manager, Production is responsible for ensuring the members of the cross-disciplined teams can effectively move products and features through the development cycle and out to players. This includes developing and executing the operational strategy of your product, driving the “how” of the work that happens on its various teams. You’re obsessed with understanding how the needs of the audience, the direction of the business, the health of the team and the critical elements of its products are translated into action. In early R&D (prototype) you work closely with the Executive Producer and the Game/Product Director to make sure the approach to work on the business is well-defined, that its talent systems are effectively adhered to, that resources are allocated appropriately, and that the product vision is being delivered via thoughtful milestone planning. If the project moves to Pre-Production you will report into the team’s Operations Director and help scale the team and its processes.
As a Sr Manager, Production on the Research & Development team you will help organize and deliver one of Riot’s new game projects through to production. You will work closely across all disciplines to ensure the project team is highly adaptable, efficient, and effective. You will be responsible for a range of activities from being a scrum master, JIRA owner to helping design the work system for an initiative or product. You must have an entrepreneurial spirit and a growth mindset because the product will be going through rapid growth and you will need to be adaptive and very engaged to meet the changing needs of the product. Furthermore, as an R&D producer you need to accept the possibility that the project might be cancelled or significantly pivoted at any point in the lifecycle.
