The games we typically produce are online, social experiences with AAA production value. This puts a high demand on the quality of assets and timely deliveries – which is where you come in!

Your drive and past experiences are essential for this position. We are looking for a highly-organized individual with outstanding communication skills. It is essential that you are a real team player that knows how to perform under pressure and you love to work together with others towards a common goal. Ideally you also have experience of managing outsourcing pipelines for games. This role includes coordination between our development teams and different outsourcing partners as well as managing partner relations; vetting new ones and maintaining a healthy relationship with the existing ones.

About the Company

ALL THAT MATTERS

Good old fun - working with your passion and creating entertainment should be fun. If we have fun creating games, people will have fun playing them. Fun does not exist in a vacuum though. It takes balance, positive energy and an inclusive team.

Creative independence – to make great games and create worlds that resonate with players we need creative control of the core aspects of the game. We will always fight for the power and mandate to master our own projects.

Individual ownership - every team member should feel a true sense of ownership and feel responsible for the games success. At the end of the day we do this together and the contributions each and everyone does brings us closer to a great game!

These three things define the Sharkmob experience. We work hard to maintain this culture and we believe it is the key to making great games and creating a healthy place to work.
