Job Description

Our Purpose

Improbable is a British technology company that focuses on large-scale simulations in the cloud. In gaming and entertainment, Improbable unlocks truly next-generation gameplay through virtual worlds of unprecedented scale, persistence and richness.

Improbable believes that China is leading the world in gaming, and that the next generation of virtual worlds will be developed by the prosperous Chinese Game Development Community.

Improbable is working towards opening multiple offices within China and hiring the initial 'founders' of Improbable China; our core hub for APAC Operations. We are looking for individuals with a founder mentality to support Games Production, Business Development and Product Development. Initially the focus will be on SpatialOS, but we are also opening our China Office to explore new product opportunities in gaming.

Our first China office will be based in Guangzhou and we expect to expand to multiple locations over time, as we explore additional opportunities beyond the SpatialOS platform. There will be significant opportunities to work with our outstanding Product, Engineering and Commercial teams based in London, San Francisco and other APAC countries.

We are a multinational technology company proudly building a diverse workforce, driven by a shared desire to improve and achieve extraordinary things. We're crafting technology for the future and fostering a problem-solving culture that embraces innovation through iteration and experimentation.

Your Mission

is to support the delivery of multiple projects with internal teams and effectively anticipating, tracking and communicating both timelines and risks to the wider business and the leadership team.

We anticipate that you will

* Provide a clear communication and coordination channel, working across multidisciplinary project teams based in both London and China.
* Provide a central point of coordination to reduce meeting overheads and be the go to person for leading cross-team initiatives.
* Engage with our Project Managers to aid accurate specification and delivery targets.
* You will provide a clear communication channel and help ensure teams are as efficient and productive as possible, making recommendations to improve processes.


* Proven experience delivering simultaneous, ongoing projects with multiple international teams.
* Full professional proficiency in both Mandarin and English.
* Experience developing and utilising appropriate project management frameworks to deliver in a highly technical environment.
* High level of emotional intelligence and excellent communication skills.
* Experience leading technical and non-technical projects, and a proven ability to lead cross-functional teams.
* Deep experience with Agile project management frameworks and an innate understanding of the tradeoffs.
* Excellent analytical skills and desire to deliver.

Equal Opportunity

The best ideas are often the least expected and require new ways of thinking; that's why our teams at Improbable are made up of an incredible range of talented people. Improbable is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, colour, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, veteran status, genetic information, marital status or any other legally protected status.
