Wanted: Head of Product / CPO

Czech sports/tech/gaming startup Live Penalty is looking for an experienced product manager for our mobile game (in cooperation with STRV).

Live Penalty is a mobile game that connects the real world of football/soccer with the digital world of eSports. Digital gamers can use their devices to control a physical ball launcher and compete in real penalty shootouts against professional goalkeepers.

Exclusive, live hosted penalty shootout events with top athletes, influencers, and brands in prime locations invite gamers to participate. A multiplayer mode challenges gamers to pass multiple rounds of the elimination game until one finalist remains for a true 1on1 interaction with the real goalkeeper and a chance to win high rewards.

A video database of pre-recorded athlete performances allows gamers to play the game and improve their skills 24/7. Individual user profiles include different challenges and track the gamer’s progress while collecting goals, points, and other rewards.
