  • Work with the internal technology team along with third-party partners to lead the integration of the platform’s API and SDK offerings.

  • 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.
  • Comprehensive experience in developer relations or product management, including work experience at a company that develops and/or hosts third-party digital content, games, or other applications.
  • Proven success working in complex, technical environments.
