What We Need
We’re looking for an experienced Senior Technical Product Manager to develop innovative capabilities for our backend-as-a-service platform. You’ll partner closely with business and game teams to identify and deliver product opportunities that accelerate 2K’s growth and delight our players.

What You Will Do
●    Own the vision and strategy for metagaming systems, a key component of our 2K platform. You will evolve the strategy for the capabilities required by our studios and publishing teams to drive engagement and monetization and to enable amazing experiences for our players.
●    Partner with game designers, publishing leaders, and studio engineers to understand and solve for the nuanced needs of each.
●    Align stakeholders, partners, and teams to the vision. You will champion the needs of the product and team, and scale both as required to accelerate and support 2K’s growth.
●    Develop fruitful partnerships across 2K. Among studios, franchise business leaders, and other central teams, you will inspire trust and confidence in your ability to deliver through strong communication and reliable delivery. Through these partnerships, you will identify opportunities for extending our capabilities, innovating new products, and advancing our platform strategy.
●    Work closely with peers in platform engineering and program management to plan effectively, validate product and technical assumptions, and iteratively deliver high-quality product increments. You will contribute to our shared understanding of what good looks like across multiple dimensions of product and technical quality. You will advocate among your peers on behalf of the product, the customer, and the player.
●    Requirements capture and validation, roadmapping, competitive analyses, customer interviews, strategic planning, KPI development and reporting.

Who We Think Will Be A Great Fit
●    4-7+ years in product management, developing and delivering technical software products.
●    Good understanding of game design fundamentals, particularly metagaming loops, as well as game and platform technologies. You are equally deft at speaking the language of game designers as you are business owners and engineering leads, and can explain technical issues to both technical and non-technical audiences.
●    Strong oral and written communication skills, with keen attention to detail. You have experience presenting to senior management and key stakeholders to drive decisions and win buy-in for your ideas. You excel at earning trust and are comfortable saying “no” – and can align your audience on why it’s the right answer.
●    Enthusiastic about building products, organizations, and culture. You thrive in low structure but are excited about creating the structures vital to our success. You project coolness under pressure and stability amid high-velocity change. You champion 2K values and help others to grow.
●    Bachelor’s degree required, ideally in a related field. MBA preferred.
●    Passion for gaming.

Bonus Points
●    Experience in AAA game publishing or development
●    Experience working with game console, PC, and/or mobile platform partners
