Comic Book Jobs: Halo
In the battle against The Covenant, the soldiers of Halo are looking for... a Consumer Products Category Manager.
That’s right, recruit. Microsoft Studios/343 Industries needs a marketing person to “manage the development and execution of all 3D licensed merchandise, including product planning and execution, retail programs and quality control.”
If you need reminding: “The Halo Franchise is a multibillion dollar entertainment franchise, spanning multiple product categories including games, collectibles, toys, novels, comic books, digital goods and apparel. Our product development team is responsible for working with our licensing partners to execute product plans that extend the Halo brand at the highest level of quality.

Tons of responsibilities here: including “Manage all partner accounts for mass market 3D action figure/toy/collectible companies” and “Manage all aspects of the category product development, including product planning and quality control.”
You’ll need and least 3+ years of “real world experience in production management of toys, collectibles and action figures,” which does not mean the time spent organizing your private collection.
And it probably goes without saying, but you’ll need “knowledge of the Halo universe.”
Good luck, job seekers!
