Vela Games is looking for a talented Commercial Lead to own the financials, operations, and key partner relationships for our upcoming multiplayer game Project-V.

At Vela we love games of every type, but we know that multiplayer, when done well, has a special ability to bring people together. Unforgettable moments are created through the power of playing together. It allows players to keep in touch with old friends regardless of distance, and to forge new friendships that will last lifetimes. Vela was created with these moments in mind, and our focus every day is thinking about how we can create impactful gaming experiences that inspire gamers around the world to play and win collectively.

In this role, you will partner with studio leadership to jointly run and operate a new game with aspirations to grow to millions of players in markets around the world. You are a scrappy entrepreneur whose tasks range from managing business growth at the EBITDA level, to collaborating directly with development and publishing in order to identify and implement new monetization strategies and growth avenues.

You will own the full loop of the game’s financials, starting off with the high level business planning and financial strategy, cost management, monetization strategy, and actual execution. This will also be one of the most collaborative roles, as you will partner EXTREMELY closely with multiple stakeholders: game designers, technical leads, player insights, marketers, community managers, player support, legal, and finance - depending on what your vision and tasks entail. For external partners, you will represent the game and its business, and manage the relationships while continuously looking for ways to effectively grow the global business and player community together.

What we are NOT looking for is someone who will delegate the business to multiple people and “indirectly” manage the business, or limit themselves to high level strategy consultation via powerpoint slides. This role will ONLY be for those who equally enjoy high level strategy development, deep dive analytics, scrappy operations, and firsthand accountable risk taking - all for the purpose of helping us build a game that players around the world love!

If this sounds like you, please apply, we would love to speak with you !
