Operations Coordinator [CHICAGO]

This opportunity is for a full-time position in Chicago, IL. All new-hire onboarding is being done remotely, and any equipment that you might need for projects at Iron Galaxy will be shipped directly to you.

Iron Galaxy Studios is a well-established independent game developer who has partnered with the titans of our industry to ship more high-caliber games than any other independent developer. We make this happen by focusing upon our most important asset – our people. We take our team and our culture seriously, and we make every decision around our 4 company values of People, Partners, Continuous Improvement and Capability, while always striving to never be too corporate.

We are looking for an Operations Coordinator to work in our Chicago studio as a member of our Operations team. The right candidate will be proactive, detail oriented, solutions focused, and results driven. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this position requires the capacity to work onsite at the studio most days with a few days of work from home. At the time when our team returns to the studio full-time, this role would require all work to be onsite. At present, both studios are primarily closed with a small number of Operations and IT team members in studio maintaining systems and providing support. Some responsibilities during the work from home phase will be different when we resume in studio work.
