What you’ll do:

  • Assess projects’ budget and timeline
  • Draw up cost sheets before work starts and close accounts when it’s over
  • Assemble a team of translators and editors for projects
  • Supervise your team’s work: for deadlines and quality
  • Be in contact with clients (sometimes outside of office hours)
  • Be the go-between for clients and our team: ask questions, relay answers, request additional information.

What skills and experience you’ll need:

  • You must know English at least at an Upper-Intermediate level because we have many international projects, where communication will be largely in English.
  • It’s great if you know what’s going on in the gaming industry: as a player or otherwise. Then it will be easier for you to grasp the specifics of our work.
  • 1-3 years of project management experience is preferred, but I’m willing to consider candidates without it.
  • Higher education relative to translation, linguistics, or management is a plus.

What qualities you’ll need:

  • Attention to detail. When working with texts, it’s important not to miss and small errors, so you’ll need to check translations before returning them to clients.
  • Systematic thinking. Being able to structure ideas and understand cause-and-effect relationships will allow you to properly evaluate deadlines and budgets without getting confused while working on multiple projects.
  • Inventive. When unusual or urgent issues arise, you can’t stand by, but quickly assess the situation and supply potential solutions. All the while, you should recall the nuances of the project like the budget and timeline.
  • Responsive and receptive. You need to understand clients’ problems, the translators’ problems, the editors’ problems, and resolve them tactfully.
  • Patient and persistent. Things don’t always happen right away, but it’s important not to give up and to look for solutions.

Work conditions:

  • Full employment
  • Remote work possible
  • Salary is discussed individually and grows from the professional level
