Fixed Term
Build amazing experiences in Halo Infinite, connect players across platforms in Minecraft, or unleash your creativity on original IP.  Skybox Labs is a game development studio that works on some of the world’s most iconic games. We are a co-developer on Halo Infinite, work on projects in the Minecraft universe, and also make original cinematic platformer, Stela. As one of Vancouver’s fastest growing game studios, since our inception in 2011, Skybox Labs has evolved from a group of 8 people developing independent projects to a team of over 140 engineers, artists, designers, producers, and more.

Our team is working on dynamic and complex projects, requiring someone who gets excited when managing many moving parts, and who recognizes what goes into making something extraordinary.

In case there is any confusion based on the number of different ways our industry can view the 'producer' role, we envision this role to be close to project management in nature.
