Job description

Job Overview

How would you like to be part of the team that will launch the next big F2P game from Wargaming, the maker of juggernauts like ‘World of Tanks’ and ‘World of Warships’?

The game creation is being led here at Wargaming’s brand-new UK studio, located in the heart of Guildford. It is aimed at the North American market, is based on a completely new IP and differs significantly from the existing Wargaming products. It’s a truly unique chance to be at the forefront of the next generation of PC and console F2P games!

As a Project Manager, you will be part of a team of project managers. You will be responsible for managing the team based in Guildford and supporting the development needs and identifying areas we need to support our publishing group. This is an opportunity to grow into a key publishing role within the studio.

You will not be making product decisions, that part is handled by producers in our studio. While the producers are focusing on what we should be doing and why we should be doing it, you are focusing on how we can deliver it effectively and reliably.

This is your opportunity to join a world-class project management team that takes pride in its ability to continuously improve our way of working to benefit the team, the game and ultimately the company! What could be more exciting than that?!
