Life at Big Fish Games 

Big Fish Games is an innovative developer and world-class publisher of a diverse portfolio of casual game franchises, including Big Fish Casino, Gummy Drop, Fairway Solitaire, Jackpot Magic Slots and Cooking Craze.   Founded in 2002, we serve millions of players every day and are dedicated to providing players with the opportunity to play, connect, compete and discover anywhere and on any device.  We are dedicated to enhancing life through exceptional play.

Our four core beliefs are what makes working at Big Fish Games unique. We believe in a work environment that:

  • Creates opportunities for impact
  • Shares a passion for challenge
  • Cultivates a spirit of creativity
  • Thrives through collaboration


Summary and Mission
SkyRocket Studios, the creators of Fairway Solitaire, Fairway Solitaire Blast, Cascade, and many other mobile, free-to-play hits, is seeking a Producer for an internal, mobile free-to-play development team.

Your overall mission will be to coordinate the development, launch and live operations of a mobile, free-to-play game. In addition to artists, engineers and designers, you’ll work closely with a wide variety of studio resources, including product managers, game data analysts, marketing managers and game quality assurance. Producers are at the center of it all, cutting through argument, debate and doubt and offering solutions that everybody can understand.

 
Key Responsibilities

  • Deliver world-class, free-to-play, mobile gaming services on time and on budget by managing all facets of production and development.
  • Drive the development of product requirements, scope, schedule and budget through launch and during live operations.
  • As one of the primary points of contact and communication for a project, coordinate with exec and senior producers to hammer out alignment on goals and deliverables with product management and studio executives.
  • Collaborate with other producers and studio directors in the development and implementation of best practices, standardized processes and shared learnings.
  • Provide feedback on game design and features, based on an expert understanding of mobile, free-to-play games and the best practices of business competitors.


Qualifications

  • 2+ years of production experience, ideally with a focus on Free-to-Play, mobile development.
  • Demonstrated track record of shipping high-quality games in a direct, internal production role. 
  • Expert-level understanding of the mobile, free-to-play market. Bring your phone or tablet to the interview – we’ll want to see what games you’re playing and ask you why you’re making in-app purchases (or why not).
  • Expert-level communication and project management skills, with a focus on agile methodologies and rapid iteration.
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience

Big Fish Games is an equal opportunity employer. We bring unique talents together to build something special that’s why we welcome and encourage diversity in the workplace regardless of race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or veteran status.
