A leader in creating deep and engaging experiences on PC and mobile, Jagex was founded in 2001 and is today one of the UK’s biggest and most respected video game developers and publishers.
Famed for its flagship MMOs RuneScape and Old School RuneScape, Jagex has welcomed more than 260million player accounts to its world and created a $1bn lifetime franchise revenue. Today the RuneScape franchise exists beyond running games in live operations; our titles are living games that connect and inspire millions of players, with content and experiences both inside and outside of inexhaustible game worlds.
Both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape, on PC and mobile, offer ever-evolving, highly-active worlds and our community-focussed development ethos empowers players to have a real say in how each game is shaped.
Jagex is expanding and extending its portfolio with fresh franchise titles, new IP and, in 2018 launched Jagex Partners, delivering third-party publishing and operational services exclusively for the living games of the future.
Jagex employs more 360 people at its Cambridge headquarters and is on the hunt for talented people to work across the business to help the company to achieve yet another year of record growth and player satisfaction.
Jagex Ltd, the UK's largest developer and publisher of online games, is looking for a talented, technical product owner to play a key role in growing our platform team. The team’s goal is to build a new backend gaming platform that our new games can integrate with easily. The platform allows customers to create and manage accounts, payments, micro transaction, cohort testing and reporting. This data will be critical to the product teams, so that they can understand what the customers want and where their pain points are.
This role will be focused on delivering analytical features into the new platform. You will be responsible for understanding the business requirements and translating these into prioritized feature backlogs which you will maintain through the development lifecycle. You must be experienced in writing user stories and acceptance criteria to ensure the development teams deliver to specification and product vision. The backlog will vary to being very front end focused to also being backend heavy thereby providing technical solutions to other development teams to leverage data solutions.
You will also be working closely with our game teams to launch new titles by managing the process of integrating 3rd party published games into the new platform.
This is an amazing opportunity to be at the heart of delivering the next generation of gaming platforms.
