We are a small group of veteran game developers and entrepreneurs creating games using blockchain technology. Our vision is simple: to create generation-defining games that fundamentally grant power and ownership to the players who play them.

Our team has decades of experience building games at the scale of 100M+ players. Our team hails from Epic Games, Zynga, EA, Riot, Scopely, THQ and Activision, where we led $1b+ franchises like FarmVille and League of Legends. We’ve also been active as founders and investors in crypto since 2013 and are backed by world-class investors.

Excited to be adding to our Product Team with a Lead Product Manager. Proof of Play is committed to building fully on chain games, and the technical tools to power them, in order to facilitate autonomous worlds, ensure game longevity, and create a more immersive player experience.

We’re creating multi-generational products — games that will outlast us and are owned by the communities that play them. We are a fully remote company, built on a foundation of clear communication, respect, and collaboration. Your expertise can make a lasting impact here at Proof of Play and we’d love to connect and learn more!

Role Overview

As a Lead Product Manager, you will play a strategic role in shaping and delivering our product vision. We expect the right individual to be a pivotal voice to supervise the product development process from the foundation stages through until execution. 

You will be a utility player role that will work cross-functionally across many areas like analytics, monetization, marketing, and design. You’ll often have to wear a few hats and have to jump in to support your team members through any obstacle thrown our way from a product perspective. As Lead Product Manager,  you’ll be a senior voice on this team and the expectation will be for you to lead strategy for your peers on a daily basis. One day you may focus on financial modeling and the next could be spent on marketing analytics or crafting product requirements.

This role will touch many aspects of our products and business, and we’re excited for you to roll up your sleeves and jump right in. The Lead Product Manager role is a foundational opportunity and one where you can craft your path forward here internally.

We foster a diverse set of voices and want our team to represent the diversity of those who play our games.
