Executive Producer

Stardust /
Full Time
Stardust is building the metaverse - an interconnected world of games enabled by blockchain and NFTs. 

Why work at Stardust?

At Stardust you won't be building just another SaaS product for game developers, you’ll be building the future. The Metaverse (think Ready Player One) is connecting games, finance, and social, while being the foundational layer for new economies, the future of work, fashion, and more. We’re looking for individuals who think big, want to change the future, and who can believe in the big ideas before they are mainstream. Challenging the status quo is what we do and we’re looking for someone to help turn crazy ideas into reality.

We've just raised our Series A and are growing quickly, join our team and build the future, not just witness it.

Learning is a key part of this role. We work with almost every blockchain and in many different programming languages, some mainstream and some custom to the blockchain we are working on.

Summary
As our Executive Producer you will be our chief motivator and organizer. You’ll work closely with our engineering group working on what will be a best in class platform, supporting developers in the NFT space. You’ll be supporting multiple teams with different specialities, and you’ll need to both connect with them and find ways to unblock and facilitate their progress. As a leader, you will have the opportunity to build out the Production department over time, as well as mentor and shape your staff into a confident, creative, and considerate team. You will be alert to opportunities, risks, challenges, and inefficiencies so that you can solve them quickly to keep the development group on track.

You will build and lead a team of production staff, you will participate in budgetary planning, feature priority planning, and you’ll be collaborating with team leaders, executive staff, and external development partners. You don’t need to know blockchain, or the NFT space, because you’ll learn that as you go.
