LOCATION: Venice, CA

REPORTS TO: Head of Business Development in Europe

YOUR MISSION: To bring the best of Windows, Mac and Linux games to GOG.com by building and maintaining close relationships with both developers and publishers from indie to the big guys.

Responsibilities:

Your key responsibilities would be to:

  • Establish and maintain close relationships with all key developers and publishers across North America.
  • Identify, negotiate and sign the best games for GOG.com’s audience and then work with the rights holders hand-in-hand to support their releases on our platform (with the help of other teams in the Warsaw HQ).
  • Evangelize GOG.com and GOG Galaxy SDK to developers and publishers with the goal of GOG Galaxy being implemented across all new releases. This would include dedicated presentations as well as co-organizing our presence and co-showcasing GOG Galaxy at the key developer events across North America.
  • Perform regular business development tasks like running P&Ls, managing accounts, travelling across the whole globe (North American developers and publishers relations being the hot spot).
  • Daily communication with GOG.com’s global team (based in Warsaw, Poland) to ensure close collaboration and synchronization on global business development operations and the company’s strategy. This would include regular trips to our Warsaw HQ.

Job Requirements:

  • A minimum of 1 year of experience in the business development area as a Senior Manager, or 3 years of experience as a Manager. The more international the experience, the better!
  • Passion for games and gaming culture with a good understanding of the digital distribution scene, its key players and trends.
  • Broad knowledge of the developers and publishers scene. The recent and upcoming hits? The hidden gems? You need to know most of them!
  • Honesty, passion, creativity. These are not only our values, but the adjectives that describe your profile best.
  • A highly collaborative, proactive and hard working approach with the ability to self motivate within an entrepreneurial environment without a heavy corporate structure, and with a remote management structure.
  • Solid organization skills, combined with an ability to prioritize your work to meet deadlines.
  • Ability to treat numbers as your friends is a must, but the ability to handle P&Ls and forecasts would be a nice plus.
  • Ability to travel, including international travel.

What we offer:

  • A unique opportunity to enter a booming industry and to influence the future of digital distribution.
  • A gamer’s paradise where you will be surrounded by games - living & breathing them!
