The Job
WB Games NY is looking to fill a Technical Account Manager position.
As a Technical Account Manager you will be a key member of the WB Games central tech team (WB Games New York), serving as a technical point of contact for all development teams leveraging WBNY's online service platforms.
You will need to be able to understand and explain our products at a technical level to some of the best game development engineers in the industry.
This is a great position for someone with a strong technical background who can take that experience and feel comfortable communicating concepts, both verbally and in written format, to other developers.
Your Role Accountabilities...

  • Become an expert in our backend service products. Put yourself in a position to understand and confidently explain our products to the game development engineers leveraging our products. This is the foundational piece of this position. You can't fulfill your other job requirements without expert knowledge of our API and services.
  • Analyze customers' requirements and suggest existing features in our online service products to meet their requirements. This will include regularly using our online service products, digging in with the exact API endpoints being used by your customers, and using your technical background to suggest the most efficient way to integrate with our APIs.
  • Train customers associated with your account(s) to use our products effectively. Your customers will be game developers and engineers, so a level of comfort communicating and collaborating with other developers is required.
  • Regularly review the API usage patterns of your customers throughout an individual game's lifecycle. Use these API reviews to ensure customers are following best practices, align with the technical design you've provided, and are safely prepared to launch to the public.
  • Facilitate load testing efforts by creating and maintaining simple scripts to mock API traffic coming from games.
  • Assist with challenging level-one technical support requests and issue escalations from game teams. Address all account-related queries in a timely fashion.
  • Provide internal WBNY development team with customers' feedback to help identify potential new product features or products.
  • Provide support and game-specific implementation expertise to WBNY's Live Operations team during live incidents to help us identify issues and recover.
  • Review and provide feedback on implementation documentation.
  • Develop relationships across own team and with peers on other teams for the purpose of enhancing knowledge and visibility of broader development process. Actively shares knowledge through peer mentoring and informal teachings. Learns from and receives guidance from more experienced employees.

Qualifications & Experience...

  • Experience building or using a REST API or other web services.
  • General understanding of game development disciplines and their inputs into online service development.
  • Aptitude for quickly learning new techniques and technologies. Consistently provides quality support of these technologies within the expected time frame.
  • Ability to communicate concepts, verbally and in written format, to both technical and non-technical team members.
  • Familiarity with task and bug tracking software packages (e.g. Jira).
  • Performs most job-related duties with minimal supervision.
  • Takes initiative in pursuing new assignments. May pursue new assignments and identify tasks.

How We Get Things Done...
This last bit is probably the most important! Here at WBD, our guiding principles are the core values by which we operate and are central to how we get things done. You can find them at www.wbd.com/guiding-principles/ along with some insights from the team on what they mean and how they show up in their day to day.
