Playground Games is looking for a Senior Producer to join our Fable team on a permanent basis. 

About us: 

As a first-party Xbox Game Studio, we are passionate about making genre-defining games that are accessible, beautiful, and, most of all, fun. We are excited to be rebooting the much-loved Fable franchise and are expanding our diverse team to create a new classic in the action RPG genre. 

ABOUT THE ROLE: 

As a Senior Producer, you'll be the mastermind behind making sure all the pieces come together seamlessly within Fable’s open world. Working with multidisciplinary internal and external teams to deliver game content, you thrive on strategic planning, herding cats (aka stakeholders), and getting everyone on the same page — even if that means cracking a few jokes to lighten the mood.  

You're the Swiss Army knife of problem-solving, tackling challenges with a mix of creativity and methodical precision. Armed with killer communication skills and a knack for bringing people together, you'll be the driving force behind turning project dreams into reality.  

This is a permanent role based at our state-of-the-art facilities in Royal Leamington Spa, with a hybrid work model in place. Relocation assistance is available if required.   

WHAT YOU’LL DO:

  • Champion project goals and drive the delivery of AAA-quality game content in alignment with the game’s vision and technical requirements. 
  • Lead and manage the development process by working closely with project leadership and feature teams to plan, scope, and manage features and content in accordance with high-level project roadmaps and budgets. 
  • Develop and maintain project schedules, budgets, and resource allocations, while continually refining plans to adapt to evolving project needs and priorities. 
  • Drive consensus among stakeholders at all levels to ensure alignment on deadlines, requirements, and priorities. 
  • Define workflows and processes that facilitate collaboration, clear communication, and accountability. 
  • Identify potential risks and challenges early in the development process, and proactively develop mitigation strategies to address them, ensuring project success and minimizing disruptions. 
  • Line manage junior producers, facilitate team planning sessions, and drive process improvements to enhance production efficiency and effectiveness. 

WHAT YOU’LL BRING: 

  • 5+ years of Production experience. 
  • Experience producing at least 1 published title through an entire project lifecycle (ideally AAA). 
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail, with previous experience managing cross-functional teams in the creation and delivery of complex projects. 
  • In-depth knowledge of project management practices and methodologies, with a solid understanding of game development or software development processes. 
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to effectively communicate with stakeholders at varying levels, both within the team and throughout the organization. 
  • Ability to exhibit problem-solving skills daily, viewing each new challenge as an opportunity for success, and creatively and methodically approaching challenges to achieve resolutions. 
  • Experience with open-world RPGs is a plus. 

Playground Games is proud to be an equal opportunity employer, we believe that diversity and inclusion fuels creativity. We are dedicated to creating a safe, comfortable and welcoming working environment.   

We strive to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports and celebrates the diverse voices of our team members.  It drives our innovation and connects us closer to our players.  We are committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion across age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
