Who we are
A Thinking Ape builds communities through mobile games with emergent social play and original IP. We released our first game in 2009 and have been highly profitable and growing every year since. We are a bottom-up company with small teams that focus on ownership and data driven decision making. Our portfolio of games is growing and we are scaling our growth team to bring our games to even more players.
We are looking for a User Acquisition Team Lead to help us grow our existing franchises and upcoming new games into the top grossing charts. We have doubled our revenue over the last three years and need your expertise to get us to the next level of growth.
You will lead a team of four to scale our two highly popular free-to-play original IP games, Kingdoms of Heckfire and Party in my Dorm and new games in development. These games have passionate communities and appeal to vastly different audiences. You will be responsible for all aspects of user acquisition for our portfolio of games and will lead your team to develop and drive sustainable growth strategies to acquire users profitably world-wide.
Our growth team consists of artists and analysts who strategize and execute on new ways to grow our games across multiple channels. You will work very closely with the Marketing Art Lead to foster a productive and collaborative team culture and ensure your teams are working cohesively. As a performance marketing team we execute on a high volume of creatively diverse content, and continue to experiment with different marketing strategies. The team is very data focused and have built a suite of marketing tools based on our internal data pipeline and BI system and have the full support of an internal Data Science team.

But we also care that our employees and candidates feel valued and comfortable being themselves. Please consider applying even if you don't meet every qualification. Experience comes in many forms and we value adding diverse perspectives to our teams.
