Production Coordinator

This opportunity is for a full-time position, either in Chicago, IL or Orlando, FL. Iron Galaxy employees are all working from home through at least July 2021 due to COVID-19. This WFH policy extends to anyone that Iron Galaxy hires between now and then. 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 looking for a talented, passionate, and motivated Production Coordinator to join our team. We are a well-established independent game developer who has worked with the titans of our industry to ship more high-caliber games than any other indie developer. We are known for our excellent work on Killer Instinct, as well as helping to bring Skyrim, Overwatch and Diablo III to the Nintendo Switch.

As a Production Coordinator, you will work with the development team to create production schedules, track project deliverables, coordinate team logistics to help drive goals, and contribute to fostering a positive team culture. You will work closely with the various game teams to ensure that development runs smoothly and assist in communication between the departments, helping the teams stay on task with ongoing projects. You may assist on one project at a time or, based on our needs, work on multiple smaller projects at once.

We pride ourselves on being a studio that does amazing work while maintaining a positive culture and supporting work-life balance for our employees. We expect a lot from our team, but offer the support, coaching, mentorship, and variety to make great game developers out of every person that joins our studio.
