Corporate Strategy Manager

Our client is a leading global gaming and entertainment company. Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. They craft games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and they employ all kinds of people from all types of backgrounds to bring them to life. They believe they simply can’t expect diversity in their players and new ideas in their games without first nurturing it in their people. 

They are the leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world. They are also a serious business that takes pride in having fun. Every single day they mix intuition with logic, art with science and magic with mathematics to craft the games the world loves to play. Their mission is to bring moments of magic to everyday life. 

This is a unique opportunity to join a successful and highly valued team that works closely with their executive leadership in shaping their long-term strategy and roadmap, and in making mission-critical decisions that cut across the full breadth of their business. The team also supports the implementation of new business initiatives that ‘move the needle’ for them.
