WE WANT YOUR BRAINS… PopCap is on the hunt for bright, talented, people with a passion for making the world’s best games.  What’s in it for you?  A super-fun environment, rewarding work, excellent benefits, and lots of great perks (matching gift donations, onsite yoga, and more).  It takes big, delicious brains to make award-wining titles like Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, and Peggle.  Are you up for the challenge?

PopCap is looking for a seasoned Executive Producer to lead some of our most popular and beloved games/IP.  Our projects evolve from small passionate teams working on innovative new concepts to live products at massive scale as measured by installs, DAU, and revenue.  This person will champion the overall product vision, build and lead passionate high performance teams, and drive product operations that result in groundbreaking games for our players and successful businesses for PopCap.


What you’ll be doing:

  • You are the product vision holder for your game.  Empowering our diverse creative talent to execute against a clearly defined and communicated vision.
  • Act as a respected cross-disciplinary team leader.  Great games are made by great teams.  It will be your job to build, align, and motivate high performance teams that are passionately making the magic happen.
  • Drive the direction and overall strategy of your game from early production to live operations validating that we are hitting key KPI’s, staying on budget, and meeting all milestones/deadlines.
  • Tackle the obstacles.  When roadblocks come up, you’ll be the “go-to” person.  Identify and remove any obstacles that block the progress of your team – from nerfgun wars gone awry to changes in game requirements based on live data.
  • Build the passion and momentum.  Communicate your vision within your team, across PopCap/EA, and externally to players, influencers, and press.


What we need from you:

  • We LOVE mobile/tablet games: we need someone that feels the same way.
  • 10+ years in producing first-party games, with a track record of launched titles in the mobile/freemium space, and 5+ years in a leadership capacity.
  • Proven ability to rally the troops and manage diverse teams from creative to engineering, and everything in between.
  • ARPPU, ARPU, D2, D7, D14, Conversion Rates, and MAU/DAU…what does that all stand for?  The right candidate will know.  You speak the language of live service games and have previous P&L ownership to ensure our games are operating at healthy levels.
  • Previous experience managing multiple projects in all phases of the development cycle.
  • Deep understanding of widely popular mobile/freemium games, market trends, and consumer demographics.  Success in shipping games that appeal to a massive audience, not just a niche market.
