Homa is a gaming technology lab that gives game creators the data-driven tools and human expertise needed to turn their creative ideas into commercial hits. The technology we create is used by game creators around the world to create games that hit players’ sweet spot, and the commercial jackpot.

Our “Homa Lab” platform gives game creators a comprehensive set of tools and solutions that lets them keep their eyes on new trends and ideas, execute real-time A/B testing of all their game’s features through a no-code SDK, and distribute and monetize their games as well. It’s a full end-to-end digital ecosystem that ensures developers are focused on the right idea, building games with every feature optimized, and distributing them at the right time, to people eager to play them, worldwide.

Does it work? Yep. Apps powered by our tech have been downloaded more than 1 billion times. And a lot of that is because we don’t just sell our platform to clients and wish them well. We partner with them long-term, we make one hit, then we make some more. Homa is 50% a technology platform and 50% a collaborative, transparent partnership.

As a team, we’re over 160 people and 34+ nationalities strong. Some of us are artists, some of us are business developers, engineers, entrepreneurs or former strategy consultants – but we’re all here for the same thing: to take over the gaming industry by giving creators the data to transform their ideas into games played and money made.

Since inception, Homa raised a total of $165M to achieve this mission, with the participation of Headline, Northzone, Eurazeo, Singular, Quadrille Capital, Fabric Ventures and Bpifrance – along with renowned business angels, including King and FuboTV founders, and Spotify founder Daniel Ek’s family office.

Homa is looking for an experienced Game Lead to manage a team working on a brand new game and IP. As a Game Lead, you will manage the whole internal team building and scaling a game. You will also manage the external studio in charge of developing the game. Your knowledge of F2P best-practices, your project management and people management skills will be essential to the success of the game.

We are building games in the mid-core segment, specifically built around RPG, city-building and battling / shooting features. We are also introducing new web3 features enabled by the blockchain technology. In charge of one of those games, you will manage designers, engineers, artists, growth specialists and ensure they support each other. The ideal candidate can wear many hats and jump in to assist the team on every aspect of the game. Flexibility and the ability to adapt will be crucial to your success.

We work as a small and new team in a dynamic and agile environment – this requires comfort operating in an ambiguous environment where goals and constraints are mostly team driven and where change, big and small, is a critical part of the development process.

Role & missions – What you will do

  • Define game vision and collaborate with stakeholders to create and track project roadmap
  • Organize and coordinate the different phases of the game: design creation, prototype testing, iterations, launch
  • Lead relationship with the game studio and other partners, represent Homa externally
  • Facilitate and ensure great communication between disciplines, teams and individuals, both written, verbal and visual
  • Recruit, manage and develop a multidisciplinary team

Requirements

Preferred background – What you will need

  • Deep understanding and proficiency in the product life cycle of a game
  • A proven track record in a product manager or producer position in the gaming industry
  • Excellent communication, interpersonal and organizational skills
  • Absolute passion for playing and making games
  • Able to work in a demanding team environment
  • Management experience of a multidisciplinary team
  • Knowledge and strong interest in blockchain and web3 gaming is a plus

Our Culture—Who we are

At Homa, we value brains over backgrounds and determination over degrees. We believe actual growth results from diversity — nationalities, backgrounds, skill sets, and personal experiences — all working towards a single objective. If you’ve got the smarts, energy, and motivation, no barriers keep you from going far.

We are the people behind the platform – the creative specialists giving creators the data needed to power up their creativity. At Homa, we live by the three central values:

  • Ambition: we put flags on summits. We set our goals ambitiously high and don’t shy away from the climb. We’re on a mission to take over an industry thick with incumbents who won’t go quietly into the night. To succeed here, you’ll need a highly metaphorical shield and a sword.
  • Humility: we put our egos aside. We put our hands up. First to volunteer to help, second to high-five. Having an ego is natural, but letting it run the show is unhelpful to everyone. In the words of Mr. Lamar: Sit down. Be humble.
  • Curiosity: we keep our eyes open. We believe the best way to know anything is to question everything. And to do that, you need open eyes and open minds at all times.

Benefits

  • Success is its own reward, but here are the perks as well.
    • You’ll be working with top tier talent from 34+ countries
    • Don’t live in France or have a right to work here? No worries, we offer sponsorship, relocation packages and full remote options.
    • If you’re interested in working from our newly-renovated Paris HQ with a rooftop garden and WeWork amenities, we’ve got a desk right here…
    • You’ll have two annual reviews, meaning you’ll have two chances a year to prove you should be earning more.
    • Don’t speak French and don’t want to learn it? Pas de problème, we work in English.
    • See the world via team events + workation (the infamous company-wide Homa trip).
    • We have a culture of continuous learning, supporting knowledge sharing & experience gaining through our learning platform.
    • Essential benefits in France and specific locations: health insurance, meal vouchers, public transport subsidy, child-care benefits, and life insurance.
