US-CA-Glendale-Executive Producer, Neopets
Here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come around every day. Neopets is looking for an EP.
The Neopets Executive Producer reports to a VP and interacts with the longest list of Director types I’ve ever seen included in a job description. I quote:
This position will interact closely with:
-Director, Technical Development
-Director, Multimedia Applications Development
-Director, Casual Game Development
-Director, Marketing and Operations
-Director, Promotions Marketing
-Director, Fraud Management
-Design Director, Neopets Creative Resources
-Director, Consumer Products
-Director, Research Analysis
But as we all know, the market for talent is tight. So I wasn’t surprised to see a relatively light set of prerequisites:
-BA in a related field or equivalent experience.MA a plus.
-3+ years working as a Product Manager, Producer or Associate Producer on multi-player on-line games or similar position.
-2+ years experience with project budgetary processes.
And after listing off 23 bullet points under the KNOWLEDGE/SKILLS section, I always find it odd when companies throw in a line like this:
-Proficiency in the following software or systems:
-Microsoft Office, Visio, MS Project, Outlook
In any case, it’s late at night and I’m being overly critical. If you’re interested in this opportunity, email Mia Burgess (email@example.com) or go straight to the top by tracking down Kyra Reppen, SVP & GM of Neopets.
