Senior Game Producer
Overwatch Irvine, California

Soldiers, scientists, adventurers, oddities…producers! The Overwatch team is looking for a new hero to team up as a Senior Game Producer! 

Members of the Overwatch team are passionate gamers at heart - driven to make the most fun and compelling experiences for our players. We spend our days collaborating and iterating on everything that goes into the game: from placing health packs to dreaming up the craziest “Play of the Game” animations. Our goal is to always surprise and delight our players. We believe in maximum visibility and communication at the team level and with the people who play our game. This philosophy, along with the Blizzard values of “Gameplay First” and “Play Nice, Play Fair,” has made Overwatch one of Blizzard's most successful games, and it has forged a bond of trust with our worldwide player community that is extremely important to us.

Are you the hero that has what it takes to coordinate Design, Art, Engineering, Sound and QA to deliver features players love? If you’re passionate about what you do and how you do it, we’d love to hear from you!
