Who we are

The Workshop is a tech company that develops intuitive software for the online gaming industry. Our motto is to move “Fearlessly Forward” together. Cooperative innovation is at the center of everything we do – from our games, new products and technologies, to how we collaborate and share inspiration with one another.

We understand that great ideas come from great people, and great people thrive when they’re trusted to challenge, change, improve, and perfect our products and processes. Our forte lies in the diversity of our skills – and that comes from the diversity of our people.

The Workshop is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace, where we all learn together, trust each other, and value collaboration. We welcome candidates of all genders, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, nationality, belief (or lack thereof), and programming language preference. As an equal opportunity employer, we offer a friendly, supportive working environment for all. It’s a place where you can try new ideas, take risks, and enjoy the support to move Fearlessly Forward.

Your mission

Your main objective will be to take ownership to successfully deliver strategically important projects, from the project kick-off to the closure, supporting teams to establish plans and keep track of project milestones, taking viewpoints from all groups into consideration, and providing consistency over the whole project lifecycle.

You will act as the main point of contact and will ensure that stakeholders at all levels of the organization (up to the CEO) have the information they need for informed decision-making. You will provide visibility of project statuses through consolidated and individual projects reports tailored to their audiences, so we do expect you to have superb communications skills and fluent English.

You will have to get up to speed and pick up things very quickly, and must be comfortable managing a portfolio of concurrent projects in a truly agile work environment with limited supervision. You will report to the Head of The Hub, an efficient, collaborative and diverse Project and Programme management function that creates genuine value for the business and supports the delivery of key objectives.
