  • Support your team and proactively work to continuously improve the team's operations.
  • Drives collaboration across all major product teams
  • Oversee delivery of the full Adventure & Creative Play product space, ensuring all roadmaps, up and down the team and product, are linked and traceable

In return, we can offer an environment that values and supports individual creativity and passion and believes in fostering new talent. We recognize the value of diversity in every sense and actively encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply.
