We’re looking for a Principal Producer to join our team at Hypixel Studios, which collaborates remotely from around the world. Our members range from industry newcomers to experts with 25+ years of experience. Team members come from a diverse set of backgrounds, but share a common passion for building polished player-focused, community-powered games.

 

Join us on our mission to bring players together in an inviting, immersive world where they can make their mark. Hytale  empowers creative expression across a spectrum of experiences including sandbox adventure, social play, minigames, and creativity using a suite of powerful and accessible tools.

 

As the Principal Producer responsible for Hytale Online experiences, you will act as the Product Owner for our online social, meta, competitive,  and minigame experiences.  You will partner with studio and design leadership to shape and drive vision, strategy, and execution. You are passionate about fostering delightful and positive player communities with content, events, and initiatives driven by deep player knowledge and data-driven insights. You will also get the opportunity to work with cross-functional teams on experiences for players to build meaningful positive relationships while staying safe and protected.

 

The ideal candidate will have a breadth of game development experience ranging from early R&D to live game operation, and strong instincts for how to lean on that past experience while leading teams into new creative opportunities.

  • You are an experienced leader who knows how to nurture, motivate and guide teams of talented developers.

  • You are an excellent communicator. You are always aware of your audience and thinking of the best ways to reach them. With players, you listen carefully with authenticity and transparency to help them understand the decisions we make as developers.

 

Some of your role:

  • You will lead multidisciplinary efforts to establish an overall vision and strategy for the broad, interconnected feature set that makes up the Hytale Online experience.
  • You will heavily influence strategic efforts and critical decisions across all of Hytale.
  • You will own the prioritization of initiatives, balancing efforts and investments to create the best possible online experience for players.
  • You will establish strong practices for leveraging player data and market research to make the best decisions for players.
  • Create plans, reports, and updates that keep partners and customers informed about status, progress, risks, and considerations

 

Essential Traits:

  • 8+ Years of experience in game production across early product development through live game operations
  • Experience driving decision making, prioritization, and measurable results for a live service product
  • Strong business acumen and confident data analysis skills, which you naturally balance with your own strong intuitions as a player
  • Proficient in both written and verbal communication with technical and non-technical individuals
  • Breadth and depth of experience with online games as a player and community member
