It's your job to get players in the door, rigorously analyze their behavior, drive their engagement, and innovate and design new products and features.

Zynga Product Managers are highly passionate about games and user experience. We work from facts rather than hunches; however, the success of our products depends not only on analytics but also on the creative quality of the fiction, mechanics, art and ultimately on whether or not playing is fun.

    People at Zynga are genuinely passionate about their work and share a common vision of connecting the world through social games, and creating meaningful relationships for players. Zynga has great opportunities for growth and learning, especially for high performers. There is a strong “work hard- play hard” mentality across teams and people’s careers are rewarded tremendously. It’s a dynamic environment, surrounded with smart, driven, and motivated people. The office space itself is open and inspiring and they provide amazing benefits to reward employees (gym, 401K match, free food etc.). Benefits and salary are top-notch and highly competitive with other tech leaders in the Bay Area. It’s rare to find a company with such a strong culture and mission.


    I feel very optimistic about Zynga’s future.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA).


    The interview process at Zynga was challenging but really enjoyable. I had interviews with about 6 different people and they ranged from behavioral to case-based interview styles with people in the department I was applying in as well as the HR department. It was really friendly environment with smart, engaged people.
