IGT is the global leader in gaming. We enable players to experience their favorite games across all channels and regulated segments, from Gaming Machines to Lotteries to Interactive. We have a well-established local presence and relationships with governments and regulators in more than 100 countries around the world, and create value by adhering to the highest standards of service, integrity, and responsibility. IGT has over 12,000 employees.

Role Overview


We are looking for an experienced Game 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 our skilled 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.

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.

Due to our international structure, IGT provides you with a challenging multicultural environment where you can use your initiative and contribute to the realization of the company’s targets. IGT strongly believes in personal development and invests continually in training and coaching.
