πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Los Angeles, CA

BLITZ is focused on creating desktop applications and websites for different games (see blitz.gg), out on a mission to helping players learn and improve their skills. Currently, our major products are focused around the popular MOBA, League of Legends, and the celebrated FPS, Valorant, but various other titles are in-flight with plans for more. Our applications aim to make gamers better players by providing them with statistics-based insight into the current state of the game, tracking personal progress, and providing real-time analysis and scouting of enemy teams.

We are looking for a Sr, Product Manager to join our team and lead all sponsored and partner activations within the Blitz app. In this role you will be responsible for managing and executing campaigns with both paid and non-paid partners that support both specific IP’s and throughout the entire platform.
