  • Product Management experience sufficient to mentor IC and Lead PMs through essential techniques, demonstrating user empathy in all coaching
  • People management experience of at least small teams; capability to grow a healthy and effective team
  • Experience with games and/or other 3D creation, so you can engage optimally in discussions about the challenges for these creators
  • Technical background sufficient to learn and engage in analysis of possible technical architecture solutions to desired outcomes
  • Strong capabilities in collaboration and driving alignment across teams who may have differing goals and priorities
You might also have
