Who We Are

OtherSide Entertainment is an independent game studio with remote staff throughout North America. Our mission is to create deeply immersive games that draw players into richly imagined worlds; games that empower players to choose their own play-style, making their experience unique and personal; games that encourage players to team up with their friends and weave their own shared narrative; the kind of games that are powered by our players’ vision as much as our own. Together, we aim to evolve the “player-authored” tradition of Ultima Underworld, System Shock, Thief, and Deus Ex – all games developed by the company’s founders, Paul Neurath and Warren Spector.

 

 

The Opportunity

We are in early development of original premium PC/console games that will include significant games-as-a-service components. We are looking for a Senior Product Manager to partner with our development teams to ensure product plans account for and take advantage of how GAAS can enhance our players’ engagement once the games are live, including ensuring the systems and infrastructure are in place to provide a high-quality experience. The team is committed to delivering great games, and it's the opportunity of the Senior Product Manager to ensure those games are great online businesses as well.

  • Own the multi release post launch roadmap for the game, covering features, narrative, and operational improvements over time, in conjunction with other game leads. 
  • Work with our publishing partners and other key stakeholders to ensure strong buy-in for our GAAS plans and expectations.
  • Be the product’s point of contact for bringing other resources to bear to support player engagement efforts, pre- and post-launch.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
