WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR . . . 
Versus Systems seeks an Accounts project management guru - someone who embodies our values (community, curiosity, diversity, and empathy) while GETTING THINGS DONE. You’ll take responsibility for continuous improvement of team, product, and process while working closely with our account partners, developers and designers as we change the way that the world engages with entertainment. 

The Project Manager will anticipate day-to-day needs and assist with production of high-quality work for our product suite, with a focus on connecting the necessary dots for successful partner launches, building and maintaining a testing community, and implementing improvements once feedback is received. This role requires accurate and effective communication and a good dose of problem solving with cross-functional teams throughout all levels of the organization. 

We are a small, collaborative team and every person contributes to the overall process and roadmap of Versus. Our approach is highly collaborative, test driven, and influenced by continuous problem-solving with a commitment to making things better every day.


YOU WILL HAVE . . .   

  • College experience. We’re looking for someone with a Bachelor’s Degree or higher
  • 4 or more years of experience working with clients and teams to build and manage complex accounts
  • Client projects and/or accounts you have successfully transitioned from company onboarding to internal development to market fulfillment 


IN THIS ROLE YOU WILL PROVIDE . . .

  • Nimbleness, agility, and efficiency. You own your projects and know where they’re at every step of the way, set your team up for success, and thoroughly document and follow up on team decisions, issues and action items as soon as needs are identified.
  • Mastery of the numbers domain. For scheduling - whether Gantt, scrum, or Kanban - you'll arrive on day 1 knowing how to put together a schedule and will work with the team to produce their best work. You also know how to manage and report discrepancies to project scope, schedule, and build comprehensive budgets.
  • Strategy and Insight. You’ll work with different people and teams to optimize the best path forward. Your communication strategies should be tailored to your audience, what they need to know and how they’ll process the information best. In short: you're a communication chameleon with long-term implementation in mind.
  • Group Management. Know how to prioritize your own work and that of the team while guiding multiple deliverables simultaneously.
  • Detailed Documentation. Create and track documentation such as project plans, team decisions and outstanding issues, risk assessments and mitigation strategies.
  • Geek Speak. You understand what it takes to build digital software and applications and know how to work with developers through dependencies and technical challenges.


WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU . . .

  • Bring experience in interactive media (app development, games, web, etc)
  • Look forward to growing with us as we become the go-to for implementing the in-game prizing experience
  • Have a background in functional or reactive programming
  • Design and create operations processes that promote our growth and success
  • Be a certified Scrum Master

An Insider's view of Versus Systems

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office fosters creativity and individuality. While we all have our roles and tasks to accomplish, we celebrate each others differences, tastes, and hobbies.

We encourage personal and professional growth, as well as sharing of experiences, which in turn helps build camaraderie.

QA Analyst

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

At Versus, we're working on solving a problem that cuts both ways: gamers hate ads, and brands hate that gamers don't click their ads. By allowing people to compete for cool prizes, we give gamers a fun way to raise the stakes and help brands reach them in ways that aren't rage-inducing.

Dan Howard

Director, Software Engineer

I've grown to consider issues holistically - not only from a gut feel, but also what data is most important to our internal stakeholders to move forward.
