We’re looking for a leader to own the integration of 2K’s game platform and publishing technology into upcoming AAA titles. You will be accountable for helping our titles improve their potential by demonstrating the full strength of 2K’s custom tech and premier publishing systems.

  • Own the direction, delivery strategy, resourcing, and leadership alignment for 2K’s largest and most complex integration projects to date.
  • Lead through organizational, process and technology challenges to deliver successful integrations – on time, within budget, and at the required level of quality.
  • Orchestrate the teams, processes and resources necessary to successfully support game development and launches. You will build a multi-functional org spanning game frontend, networking/online and server engineering; DevOps; QA; production/program management; and more as required.

You have a high-level understanding of the architectures, challenges and opportunities with each.
  • History of putting into practice AAA development, production, and risk management standard processes. You know from experience where to anticipate problems and proactively design sensible mitigations.
  • Fast paced and results oriented. You act with urgency, taking the initiative to ensure success.
  • Cool under pressure. You lead by example with a positive, dynamic, and collaborative work ethic.
  • Excellent organizational and written communication skills. You align technical and non-technical audiences quickly through a deft mix of persuasion and analysis.
