Kasedo Games is the digital first, indie label of Kalypso Media, based in Leicester. Our aim is to publish video games that players will love, but not at the expense of the people making them. We work closely together with enthusiastic indie developers and offer them our vast experience to help get their game in front of a global audience. Through our vast knowledge of producing, PR, marketing and distribution, we always strive for quality games made by quality teams and we understand that every game and studio has different requirements. The support, creative freedom and platform we provide means an indie game can grow without forgetting its roots.

We are looking for someone with exceptional project management and organisational skills, to support our growing product portfolio. You will take on several new projects at once, all at varying stages in their development cycle, whilst supporting the Producer and external development studios. You will prepare detailed delivery plans and communicate with internal and external teams globally. Reporting to the Producer & Product Manager, you will be given the support to learn new and useful skills, whilst supporting and working closely with enthusiastic indie developers.  You will be the evangelist for the product ensuring the gameplay experience is in line with our high quality standards, thus creating a positive user experience, whilst ensuring the product has a global market appeal.

  • Strong IT skills. You must have an above-average ability to adapt and use a selection of software that isn't targeted for consumer use.
  • Strong communication skills are required. This role requires someone who is a clear and effective communicator.
  • An understanding of either Graphics Design or Video Production would be desirable.
  • The ability to use the Adobe CC suite is not required but is certainly desirable.


KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Ensure your products are on track and within their designated deadlines.
  • Manage and lead asset development / delivery for the respective departments to perform at peak efficiency.
  • Manage all aspects of the product, ensuring delivery of all assets in line with PR strategy/plan – to drive product sales and revenue such as code, screenshots, renders, video, and more.
