Iron Galaxy Studios is a well-established independent game developer who has partnered with the titans of our industry to ship more high-caliber games than any other independent developer. We make this happen by focusing upon our most important asset – our people. We take our team and our culture seriously, and we make every decision around our 4 company values of People, Partners, Continuous Improvement and Capability, while always striving to never be too corporate. We are now looking for a talented, passionate, and motivated Director of Operations to join the team.
The Director of Operations is responsible for administrative and immediate management of the Operations Team. This position is a mix of facilities management, project management, emergency response (which is rare but happens), and general administrative work. All Department Head positions at Iron Galaxy Studios collaborate closely with the Executive team members and similarly collaborate closely with their department. They will advise leadership on opportunities and pitfalls surrounding our continued growth. They will also be responsible for identifying the roles they need to support them as the company grows and manage the team moving forward. The ideal candidate is a passionate, tech-savvy self-starter who can help continuously improve our capabilities and show us how we can do more with a range of creative and cost-effective solutions.
Here’s our wish list for the ideal Director of Operations at Iron Galaxy. If you possess many or most of these qualities, you may very well be the one we’re looking for!
