The project manager knows what the end product should be, and cooperates with the leads (from each department) on creating a plan of how to get there. They'll map out which tasks should be done in which order so that every department is being productive, and try to keep everyone on-schedule.
The roles of "producer" or "project coordinator" are very similar to the above, and might be part of the same "project management" hierarchy.
These are both jobs for people with a lot of experience though. At an entry level, the 1st job starts with just a junior-level role in the applicable department (junior game programmer, junior artist, etc), and the 2nd job would probably start as an assistant-producer.
