Spil Games Asia is looking for a Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), based in Shanghai. I have spoken to a couple of good candidates already, but I want to make sure I don’t miss any candidates that are not aware of the job opening. In the past I found some excellent people through this blog, therefore I decided to put some information on this position here as well.
What does the CCO at Spil Games Asia do? This will be a new position in the company. The way I see it, is that the CCO will be in charge of all marketing, product and business development activities for the Chinese websites of Spil Games Asia. This means that you are in charge of growing the websites (more users, spending more time on the site, coming back more often etc.) by optimizing the product (new features on the websites, different structure etc.) and by setting up the right partnerships with other companies and products. Depending on the background of the candidate the role could be even broader in the future. You will report to me, but functionally you will also report to the CCO of Spil Games in The Netherlands.
Who are we looking for? The best candidate (M/F) is a smart, internet-savvy, experienced manager in an online (preferably gaming) company with a passion for and understanding of everything related to the Web. If you’re not active online there is no need to apply. You should speak, read and write fluent Chinese (native Mandarin speaker preferred, basic or intermediate Chinese skills is not sufficient) and have good written and spoken English skills.
You should like to work in an entrepreneurial environment, because we try to maintain an entrepreneurial spirit in the company. That means work hard & play hard, but it also means that every renminbi has to be earned first before it can be spent – something multinationals sometimes tend to forget. The ideal candidate will have at least 10 years work experience out of which at least 5 in an online environment. A technical background is preferred but is not a hard requirement.
