Technical Product Manager
Wargaming Sydney is looking for a talented person to join our Product Team as a Technical Product Manager, working on cutting edge software products for the Wargaming portfolio of games (World of Tanks, World of Warships & upcoming AAA games). As the Product Manager you will provide the vision, develop the strategy and drive the delivery of your products; you will identify new opportunities for the studio, ensure stellar communication with our partners, and tackle challenges as they arise.
Your work will impact millions of players around the world, bringing them fun, excitement and delight.
You will be part of a Product Team of half-a-dozen people from all backgrounds, cultures, and levels of experience. We care about each other, we support each other, and we’ll do everything we can to put you in the best possible place to succeed.
We like serious games, and take our work seriously… but we’re a happy, relaxed & diverse bunch!
What will you do?
Your responsibilities will include market research, liaising with business intelligence, establishing requirements and success metrics, building a product vision, execution strategy and roadmap for software products.
You will learn new skills, mentor and be mentored, and hopefully have fun working with us.
What are we looking for?
A great candidate will likely have most of the following:
- 2+ years of experience in a product management background in software technology or video games.
- A clairvoyant sense for understanding customer needs and strong problem-solving ability to craft solutions to solve their problems.
- An analytical, with a strong data-inspired mindset.
- The ability to inspire the team to build amazing products with a constant dedication to understand, question, and improve.
- Strong communication, listening, and presentation skills (verbal and written)
- Strong negotiation and influencing skills.
We firmly believe that people are more than just CVs, and we’re not just ticking boxes here; if you don’t match one of the above but believe you’re made for this job, we still want to hear from you. Your cover letter (yes, we actually read those) is your chance to tell us more about you, your life path, your drive… and ask questions!
What additional skills will help you stand out?
A technical background is a benefit given the nature of the products we create.
Experience in taking a software product from inception, through to pitching, development and into live service is a huge plus.
