At Panda, we care about the games we make and value the unique perspective each person brings to the table. We believe we are stronger when we incorporate a diverse set of voices from people of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, and abilities. Applicants from communities underrepresented in the tabletop games industry are encouraged to apply.
Panda Game Manufacturing is a world renowned tabletop game manufacturer. With a focus on industry-leading component quality and service, we have produced thousands of tabletop games for clients around the world. Panda works with first-time game designers as well as industry titans to create products ranging from small card games to award-winning deluxe board games.
Our head office is located in Vancouver, Canada. Our manufacturing base is in Shenzhen, China, and we have a team working remotely from their home offices in over 20 cities across North America and Europe. Our common bond is our passion to produce (and play) the best quality games in the business!
Panda is currently seeking a full-time Prepress Specialist with a minimum of 2 years of work experience who will be responsible for working closely with our clients and their graphic designers to help get their project files ready for print. The position will also involve collaborating with our Shenzhen-based production team to standardize prepress processes.
This is a fully remote position, with occasional work travel when it becomes safe to do so. While we expect travel to be part of the job requirements again in the future, the health and well-being of our team is a top priority, and our basic travel policy during the pandemic has been not to require travel for any employees who are uncomfortable doing so. If you are granted an interview for this position, we will discuss your comfort level with traveling for work at that time.
The Prepress Specialist position encompasses the following areas of responsibility:
1. Prepress File Management/Design Verification (Primary Focus)
3. Other areas of contribution
After 1 year at Panda, most of our Prepress Specialists also take on secondary roles in other areas, such as Quoting, Project Management, Marketing, HR, Training, Technology, or Finance. If you feel you have skills and experience well-suited toward one or more of these areas, please let us know in your cover letter and resume.
Attributes and Experience
Our team consists of a fun and dynamic group of gaming enthusiasts who care about delivering a great experience and product to customers. We are looking for a team player that shares our company vision to create beautiful games and make a positive impact in this fun and exciting industry!
