  • 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

  • 5+ years as a game producer or product manager in mobile games or social media.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills in English and Japanese.
  • 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.

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