Work can look like a lot of different things. To us, it looks like coming into a historic candy building surrounded by the gorgeous Wasatch Mountains, to hang out with some of our most interesting friends to imagine, and create the ‘what’s next” right at the beating heart of the intersection of technology + creativity.

And if you are someone who loves to pop their head over your coworkers workstation and proclaim your love for their creative flair, while also doing everything in your power to endow them with the right arsenal to keep kicking butt in their creative endeavors, then we think you should come join us.

As a Video Game Producer at Tafi, you’ll be part of a team that has two decades of leadership in the graphic arts, 3D modeling and animation, and AR/VR markets - pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in 3D art and avatar content creation. We operate a leading global content marketplace for 3D artists and one of the world’s most fun and versatile avatar engines. Whether it’s working directly with consumers, entertainment studios or leading digital platforms, we push ourselves to find, develop and refine the experiences and tools that are changing how people identify with and explore a world of mixed realities.

In this position, you’ll take point on all art and tech based initiatives, insuring our art and development pipelines are running efficiently and projects are being delivered in a timely manner. You will work closely with both art and tech leads, acting as a bridge between the teams to understand the full project life cycle and deliverables. In working closely with our COO, CTO and Chief of Staff, you’ll make sure projects are on time, within the resource limits set and maintain the overall vision of the product. Tafi is in a period of growth which will require this person to be nimble and handle a number of different project priorities with a variety of delivery schedules.

  • Strong time management skills with a proven ability to focus on priorities, juggle multiple tasks and meet deadlines

  • Experience making and shipping a commercial game or like software development project
