The vision within Shared Tech is "We are the stage where King games love to perform”.

Your role within our Kingdom

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work with our major games and one of the largest game user bases in the world.

Your responsibilities will include;

  • Responsible for the product space for the art workflow, which includes products such as the game engine editor and tech art tools.

  • Build and maintain strong relationships with internal users, collaborators, and customers: capture needs, identify areas for collaboration, and communicate about strategies, plans, and releases.

  • Identify important opportunities in collaboration with Games, Product Managers, Engineering, Product Design, Product Specialists and Data.

  • Drive product vision, strategies, and roadmaps in the context of broader organizational strategies and goals.

  • Incorporate data, research, and market analysis to inform product strategies and roadmaps.

  • Lead product discovery and development activities in partnership with Engineering and UX.

  • People management and leadership experience

  • Experience building and shipping applications or software of features/products that encompass an end- to- end experience within a large- scale environment

  • Experience integrating customer feedback into product requirements, driving prioritization and pre/post- launch execution and evaluation.

  • Not sure you meet all the skills? Let us decide! Research shows that women and members of other under- represented groups tend to not apply to jobs when they think they may not meet every skill, when, in fact, they often do! We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment and strongly encourage you to apply.

Bonus points

  • Good understanding of UX methodologies.

  • Experience working in a cross- functional cross- located environment.

  • Experience creating buy- in, strong collaboration, and relationship building.
