100 Million Fans Strong and ranked a Top 10 Social Network by Nielsen, Wikia operates the world’s largest network of collaboratively published games, entertainment, and lifestyle content on the web. Currently, we maintain over 400,000 Wikia communities across virtually all aspects of popular culture: from console and mobile games, TV, music, and movies to sports, books, fashion, and current events. Wikia's fan base continues to fuel consistent growth with over 1.5 billion global monthly page views from 223 countries in over 100 languages. Our traffic has grown consistently, 30% year over year on the web and 347% year over year on mobile, including downloads of our mobile applications, MyWikia App and Wikia Game Guides. 34% of Wikia's traffic comes exclusively from mobile visits.

This will be a groundbreaking year for us as we extend our massive, fast-moving, globally-distributed platform in exciting and profitable new ways. YOU will be at the center of that effort as an integral part of the product development team, closely partnering with Engineers, Design, Community Management and Product Managers. Leading and actively participating in daily Scrums, release and sprint planning, you will navigate us over, around, and through roadblocks to ensure our products are delivered successfully. And wait, there’s more! We’ll even fly you to Europe a couple times a year to keep you in sync with our Poland-based Engineers.

You are uber organized and have better-than-excellent communication skills and your colleagues would describe you as outgoing, persuasively assertive, and diplomatic. At least 2 years of your career have been in web-based project management and some of that time was spent working in an Agile environment across time zones. You have a keen understanding of product development, Agile, and Quality Assurance. Problem-solving and decision-making come naturally and you’re not the type of person who pushes people over to run out of a burning building.

Unlike most startups, our exciting platform is also coupled with a strong work-life balance. You’ll have the opportunity to shape the revenue stream of the company, technology, and products, while having fun. For your expertise, we will offer a competitive base pay and full benefits. Our dog-friendly digs are located in San Francisco (between BART and CalTrain) and also come with a stocked pantry and gaming room, where some employees practice yoga at lunch.

Joining our quest to build products for one of the most interesting sites in the world is easy. Inquire within and let’s get you started.
