What We Do
We’re working to bring the gaming industry closer together. Allowing players to play and interact with friends across platforms, products and games, better than ever, in any game and on any platform.
What You'll Do
Product management is both challenging and rewarding. As part of the Epic Online Services Social team you’ll be focused on enabling our players to have fun while creating meaningful friendships that persist across many games and experiences. This important pursuit requires empathy for our players as well as an analytical approach towards their actions. To better understand their needs and requirements you will study and reflect those learnings to the engineering teams so that we can experiment with well-considered solutions.
For us, product management means considering behaviors and systematically questioning assumptions. We strive to understand how things work (or don’t work), and to implement those findings with simplicity and elegance. If that resonates with you, then we'd love to talk.

- Establish KPIs for product analytics that influence future roadmaps
- Engage with 3rd parties to shape product roadmaps

What We're Looking For

- Experience working in a cross functional environment with engineering, design, QA, production and business stakeholders.
- Excellent communication, documentation writing and presentation skills.
- Experience working on multiplayer experiences (in games or social networks)
- 3-5 years of product management experience shipping features
