US-CA-Glendale-Executive Producer, Neopets

Here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come around every day. Neopets is looking for an EP.

The Neopets Executive Producer reports to a VP and interacts with the longest list of Director types I’ve ever seen included in a job description. I quote:

This position will interact closely with:

-Director, Technical Development

-Director, Multimedia Applications Development

-Director, Casual Game Development

-Director, Marketing and Operations

-Director, Promotions Marketing

-Director, Fraud Management

-Design Director, Neopets Creative Resources

-Director, Consumer Products

-Director, Research Analysis

But as we all know, the market for talent is tight. So I wasn’t surprised to see a relatively light set of prerequisites:

EDUCATION/EXPERIENCE:

-BA in a related field or equivalent experience. MA a plus.

-3+ years working as a Product Manager, Producer or Associate Producer on multi-player on-line games or similar position.

-2+ years experience with project budgetary processes.

And after listing off 23 bullet points under the KNOWLEDGE/SKILLS section, I always find it odd when companies throw in a line like this:

-Proficiency in the following software or systems:

-Microsoft Office, Visio, MS Project, Outlook

In any case, it’s late at night and I’m being overly critical. If you’re interested in this opportunity, email Mia Burgess (mia.burgess@mtvstaff.com) or go straight to the top by tracking down Kyra Reppen, SVP & GM of Neopets.
