Google Entering The Gaming Market

with one comment

Google is now looking to dominate another portion of the world and is venturing into the realm of gaming. A job posting for a Product Manager position in their California based headquarters.

 

What exactly will the Product Manager need to do? Quite a bit actually:

Rare opportunity to grow a brand-new business – Games at Google! We are looking for a strategic, technical and game-loving Product Manager to drive Google’s gaming strategy. 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.

The main key phrase in the description is the mentioning of “social platform” which indicates that these may be games strongly based in social networking such as Facebook. There’s already Angry Birds available to play in your Chrome browser so the expansion could also mean popular computer and cellphone based games could become readily available in your browser window.
