Games at Google – New Position, New Social Gaming Idea
The Mountain View based position has just been posted up as the Big G is on the hunt for a “game-loving product manager” to steer the brand new Games at Google.
As this isn’t an official statement and more of a job ad then there’s not much to go an as far as what kind of gaming is planned.
This could be a Chrome-based gaming outlet or something for Android. Whatever it is it looks like it will have some social features baked-in.
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.
I’m guessing Google is still patting themselves on the back after the success of the Google Pac Man browser game 😉
