Game Producer

Location: 

Las Vegas, NV, US, 89113

Requisition ID:  6902

IGT is the global leader in gaming. We enable players to experience their favorite games across all channels and regulated segments, from Gaming Machines and Lotteries to Interactive and Social Gaming. With operations in more than 100 countries and a team of over 12,000 employees, we deliver world-class gaming and lottery technology.

Overview

We’re seeking an experienced producer to join us in delivering the next generation of digital casino and lottery products for a worldwide audience. We are a passionate team, in the process of undergoing a technology shift and expanding our reach into the realm of third party development. We are responsible for both internal and external initiatives involving central technology, advancement of tools used across multiple studios around the globe, and increasing our overall game output via third party game development.


As a remote member of a distributed team, you will be tasked with driving the execution of projects that further our mission to deliver industry-leading games with ever improving efficiency. This role is focused on the planning, execution, and delivery of externally developed casino products. While the core of our internal support team operates on Pacific time, we are not all co-located, and our footprint extends across multiple locations in the US, UK, and Serbia.

We deliver games in a highly regulated industry, so a love of details, an “always learning” mindset, and a healthy respect for compliance-related issues are key to your success. If you have the energy, passion, and experience to join us in this fast-paced, high-complexity, and rapidly growing market, we would love to hear from you.
