Description

The future success of nDreams won’t just come from our own internally developed releases, but also from our fast-growing Third-Party Publishing division and the games we create with external development teams.

The Head of External Development is a key hire for us. Reporting directly to the Chief Development Officer, the role will also collaborate closely with the VP of Publishing and VP of Business Development, you will be responsible for evaluating and managing the external VR game development teams we work with and helping ensure we release their games to the highest possible quality and success.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Oversee and manage the production of externally developed titles for nDreams’ Third Party Publishing division, ensuring they not only meet schedule and budget requirements but also our commercial and qualitative standards too.
  • Working with the CDO and alongside the VP of Publishing and VP of Business Development, help identify external VR development teams and games that have potential.
  • Lead the due diligence process on any identified teams/games we take into our green light process.
  • Manage day-to-day communication between nDreams and the external development teams on all matters regarding schedule, tracking/reporting, QA, localisation, and submission; ensuring products stay on track and making recommendations accordingly.
  • Agree and set project KPIs and ensure the external development team has a strong sense of ownership, responsibility and accountability for the delivery of project KPIs.
  • Pro-actively seek resolutions to all arising risks and conflicts to keep the product schedule intact and viable – communicating these resolutions to all relevant stakeholders within appropriate timescales for ratification.
  • Responsible for regular weekly reporting and ad-hoc communication between the external development team and internal nDreams stakeholders.

Requirements

  • A well-seasoned Producer who has shipped multiple titles, ideally on multiple platforms at a Senior level.
  • You will be an excellent communicator and you’ll be equally comfortable presenting at Team, or Boardroom level.
  • Someone who is happy to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in – initially there are no direct reports into the Head of External Production role, though this is expected as the Third Party Publishing division grows.
  • Experience of VR development will be an advantage.
  • Experience of game engines such as UE and Unity will be an advantage.
