Our team works closely with engineers, artists, designers, distribution specialists, data scientists, among others, to help develop games that impact people's lives all over the globe.  

About the Role  

As a Director of Product Management responsible for Game Platform Services, you will be responsible for creating a new set of services and capabilities that will support a revolutionary new model in mobile gaming, leveraged by a growing number of some of the world’s best game developers. Game creation, monetization, distribution, and operation will be at the center of what we need to build and iterate on, though this is just the beginning. You will be the end-to-end owner of the business, including the P&L, and will provide input as well as being the ultimate decision-maker for this initiative. You will manage the entire product lifecycle, from formulating product strategy and presenting clear and measurable objectives to day-by-day tactical activities.

  • Thoughtful and analytical decision-maker: you collaborate with stakeholders and consider multiple solutions to the same problem, and can see nuance where others don't to decide what level of detail/sophistication you’ll need to make an informed and timely decision;
  • A structured and creative thinker: with a structured mindset, you are able to harness chaos into a logical architecture, and by digging into benchmarks, you're able to uncover unthinkable solutions to your day-by-day problems;
  • A natural but humble leader and mentor: as an accomplished leader, you're able to speak on a broad spectrum of topics; your demeanor diffuses conflicts and puts people at ease, helping you give constructive feedback and build relationships across cultures and interacting and coordinating the work of several teams, to extract the most value from each team member;
  • Location is flexible, though there will be occasions when teams will need to meet in-person;

What you’ll do

  • Be the single-threaded owner of our Game Platform Services initiative, which is a top strategic bet for the company;
  • Manage the entire product life cycle from formulating product strategy and presenting clear, measurable objectives to day-by-day tactical activities;
  • Lead the global vision and backlog for the product (i.e., macro and micro product roadmap);
  • Own the product’s P&L;
  • Manage the production and delivery of all product-related communication with the company’s leadership;
  • Coordinate actions within the core team and with related teams (engineering, monetization, distribution, data science);
  • Provide product leadership (through your own experience, data analyses, benchmarks, customer/expert interviews, etc.) within the product's core team;
  • Drive a solution set across development teams through market requirements, product specifications, and positioning;
  • Work with customers and stakeholders to drive alignment and communicate product updates;
  • Analyze potential partner relationships for the product and have an active role in new product development.

What you'll need

  • 10+ years of customer-facing (internal/external) product development and product management experience, including defining, launching, and optimizing product and services
  • Advanced analytics skills (e.g., statistics, AI, ML)
  • Outstanding written, oral, and organizational ability
