We're looking for a world class Product Manager to manage the full lifecycle of our CryptoKitties developer platform from initial ideation straight through to launch and growth. Every member of our team shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people to help us realize that vision. As our Product Manager, you’ll introduce a transformative new technology to a mass audience, join a pioneering project that’s shaping the future of blockchain, pave the way for a community of talented developers, and work alongside an incredible team (and some incredible dogs) in our Vancouver office.

We value that each candidate brings a unique mix of skill and experience. We set a high bar for our team members, but ensure they have the support and guidance not just to succeed, but to excel.  

What we’ll accomplish together:

  • Sketch and define a product roadmap to ship the vision, strategy, design, and execution of a developer platform to support a thriving user-developer ecosystem.
  • Partner closely with key developers in the industry to drive market research and platform systems testing to inform optimization and prioritization throughout the product lifecycle.
  • Plan and build products that serve our developer community using best practices to increase user adoption, inform content creator workflow, and build an exceptional user experience.

A Little About Us:

CryptoKitties is the world's most successful blockchain game, accounting for 25% of traffic on the Ethereum network upon launching. CryptoKitties are cryptocollectibles built on distributed ledger technology. We created the game to explore the concept of digital scarcity and introduce blockchain technology to everyday consumers––in short, to shape the future of blockchain.

Since launching, players have exchanged tens of millions of US dollars on the platform, with some cats selling for over US $100,000. We’ve been featured by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, TechCrunch, and VICE.

A Little About You:

Culture fit is of utmost importance to us and we’re willing to shape the role to fit the perfect candidate. That said, there are a few qualities or experiences a candidate must possess:

  • You’ve built large-scale developer platforms, APIs, or frameworks. (Ideally, 5-7 years of such experience).
  • You have technical know-how and an engineering background, so you can speak developer’s language.
  • If you’ve built tools or products serving games (major bonus points here).
  • You can apply your skills across a variety of use cases; inflexible specialists need not apply.
  • We believe in processes and the power of planning, but you will often have to roll with the punches and prioritize the most impactful tasks on the fly.

How to apply:

  • Please include your resume and/or LinkedIn.
  • Please include send us a portfolio or samples of your work.
