The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated aptitude for critical thinking and organization, strong analytical skills, outstanding people and communication skills, and be able to quickly adapt to changing requirements.

  • You’ll use data, evidence and market knowledge to identify opportunities for product improvement.

  • You’ll work with a cross-functional team to ensure milestones are delivered on time and up to quality standards.

  • You’ll drive a portion of development by applying agile methodologies and implementing process improvements.

  • You’ll contribute to a positive workplace.

What We Seek

Experience:

  • 5+ years experience in a production and/or product management role, with at a minimum of 2+ years in a leadership role for a F2P mobile game

  • Experience with agile development methodologies

  • Experience making good decisions to improve live ops on a F2P mobile game

  • 4-year degree required (or equivalent experience in a relevant field)

  • Substantial market knowledge with free-to-play and mobile games.

Skills:

  • Leadership: Drive alignment, hold discussions, coach/mentor, and help teams reach decisions.

  • Analytical mindset: Able to understand and evaluate product KPIs and create experiments to test your hypotheses, with an instinct for focusing on the metrics that matter most

  • Detail-oriented communication: Strong understanding of team dynamics and how to deliver complex information to a wide variety of audiences.

  • Reliability: Demonstrated ability to make and execute on long-term commitments.

  • Strong communication skills: Convey ideas through verbal, written and other mediums.

  • Holistic thinkers: Our games are huge. We need leaders who can evaluate the impact of changes across the game and the schedule.

  • Entrepreneurial spirit: We need leaders who will strive to improve development through application of best practices and thoughtful experimentation.

  • Humility: Willingness to be wrong and learn iteratively to find simple solutions to big problems.

  • Authenticity: Strong love for game development and the IPs we work with.
