Mobile Product Manager

Do you like hats? That's great! Product Managers wear lots of them. We analyze and present information to our team so they can make informed decisions. We focus on players: acquiring, advocating, retaining and optimizing. We’re the business mind for our games, ensuring we understand the costs of development, features, and customer support. We're experts in the mobile game market. We have a command of UX best practices, merchandising, and live-operations. So - eyes, ears, voice, mind, and you get to wear hats, too. Sound like fun?
