Job posting outs Games at Google

It’s been in the works for a while, but Google is now officially looking to start up its own gaming division.

A job posting on [surl=http://www.google.com/intl/en/jobs/uslocations/mountain-view/product/product-manager-games-mountain-view/index.html]the company website[/surl] calls for a Product Manager to come on board and help out with a new venture, Games at Google. This is a “rare opportunity to grow a brand-new business”, but we’re not yet sure if this will be for Android, Chrome, or something using web-based apps.

Are you the right person for the job? Google is looking for someone who can cover a range of tasks – designing the user interface, working with the gaming community and liaising with developers and partners. And, of course, you must love games.

We are looking for a strategic, technical and game-loving Product Manager to drive Google’s gaming strategy. You will design strategies for game distribution and discovery, player identity, game mechanics, and more. In addition to designing a great user experience and building out key partnerships, you will be significantly influencing Google’s social platform as you work directly with a critical set of early adopters, game developers. Interesting and impactful decisions involving social gaming, privacy, virality, business, and technical APIs await you and the strong, passionate team of gamers you will work with.

If that sounds like you, and you’re able to work out of Mountain View, California, then head over to [surl=http://www.google.com/intl/en/jobs/uslocations/mountain-view/product/product-manager-games-mountain-view/index.html]Google’s jobs page[/surl] and get the full story.
