We’re part of the “last mile” of the overall user experience – our charter is to deliver a compelling, engaging experience on both consoles and boost our audience’s sense that the gaming system overall – not just the games – is a fun to place to play and explore.

Producer responsibilities include (but are not limited to): working directly with marketing and business stakeholders, working closely with partners to plan, coordinate and maintain programming and publishing schedules, appropriately set expectations, organize requests, develop promotions, collect and respond to performance reporting, and more.

We are seeking a Producer to work specifically on the Apps area. The gaming system has a strong portfolio of apps that’s getting better all the time, and we get to show players what a good time they could be having. We’d love to talk to people with an interest in the gaming industry and the broad ecosystem of entertainment – gaming and otherwise. Excellent and consistently demonstrated organizational/project management skills are key, along with sharp communication skills and a passion for driving an excellent user experience.

• Experience with content management systems and online publishing
• Writing, editing, and similar editorial experience in an online environment
• Experience coordinating marketing campaigns
• Experience with end-to-end project management working with designers, technical teams, marketing, editorial and more. Producer must be able to provide guidance to Designers (including technical instructions) and evaluate quality of design and suitability of design delivered based on design & project goals
• Interest in online entertainment in a variety of forms, from games to movies and TV to music to viral video
• Understanding of both day-to-day publishing and software shipping cycles
• A strong sense of user advocacy

Bonus qualifications:
