You will write and review specs, then work closely with our engineers and artists to direct the development process throughout our products’ lifecycles, surfacing learnings along the way to inform the design iteration process. Your prior experience shipping successful mobile games as a Product Manager, Producer or Game Designer provides you with an inherent understanding of experiences that create user delight in moving forward our mission of “bringing the world closer together through play.”

  • Lead sprint/task management, standups, and scrum meetings.
  • Design A/B and multivariate tests to optimize features.
  • Help manage a team of creators to build the best games possible.
  • Research and deconstruct the most successful games on the market to discover what makes them successful.
  • Be the champion of your products; with clarity and forethought, guide your team to market and beyond.

Desired Skills

  • 2+ years as a game producer or product manager in mobile games or social media.
  • Must have experience managing products from concept to launch.
  • Must be very analytical and comfortable dealing with ambiguous data.
  • Ability to work with and lead creative, cross functional teams.
  • Ability to balance metric-based decision making.
  • BS/BA in quantitative fields is a plus (CS, EE, Econ, Finance).

  • Experience working and collaborating with third party partners is a plus.
  • A positive and constructive attitude.
