Leveraging its patented technology, Skillz hosts billions of casual esports tournaments for millions of mobile players worldwide, and distributes millions in prizes each month.

Chief Content Officer will have a broad charter to accelerate the success of Skillz. Multiplayer games and experiences are key ingredients to driving growth. This role will drive the overall content vision, strategy, and roadmap leading to the creation, launch, and operations of marquee content on Skillz. Today the content on Skillz is games, but this role will also oversee content expansion into verticals such as education and fitness as the company grows. As a comprehensive content owner, the position will manage an eight-figure investment budget and guide multiple teams, including player acquisition and monetization, player relationship management, and running games as a service. This position will report to the Chief Product Officer and work closely with the executive team, including the Chief Revenue Officer and Product and Sales leaders.

Skillz is in a unique place in its evolution. The platform's technical roadmap extends its capabilities to address more real-time game use cases. The platform has a solid product-market fit, and there are early successes with Tether and Big Run studio’s casual games. Our partnerships with NFL and UFC are intended to provide fuel and branding for game developers to create higher quality and recognizable content.

We are disrupting how games are monetized and inventing a new paradigm for game publishing. The ideal person for this role is a builder, strategic thinker, and not afraid to change and challenge the existing paradigms in games. The person can triangulate across player needs from games, technology platform evolution, and the business of publishing to invent and scale content at Skillz.
