Recently ranked fourth in Fortune magazine?s world's most admired companies list in the Internet Services & Retailing sector, we provide incredible career opportunities for our team in a supportive, collaborative and fun work environment.
It?s that variety that allows us to provide exceptional career path not only for those new to Product Management, allowing them to immediately own and run a smaller line of business, but for those with a strong background who can take the reins of one of our larger properties. And while variety is what makes us enticing, there?s a commonality between all Product Leaders at Mindspark: exceptional product Vision, relentless Execution and extraordinary Accountability. (being a dead-shot at Nerf? Wars doesn?t hurt either).
