About CM Games

CM Games is an independent game developer of mobile and virtual reality titles, founded in Estonia in 2010.

Back in the day, we created a new genre of mobile games, diversified our projects by making premium live games for virtual reality with a focus on gameplay and atmosphere, and delved into the action, racing, and puzzle genres.

Our goal is to build a platform for talented people who love games and create exciting yet accessible games designed for a midcore and hardcore audience.

Our first VR success

Into The Radius is a single-player survival shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world, getting into the Steam Platinum VR Category in 2021 with 91% very positive reviews and hitting the first page of top-grossing projects on Steam. Into the Radius will be available on Meta Quest 2 in September 2022! 

One of our next VR products

Dream Catcher is a relaxing spatial adventure puzzle game in which you create dreams for extraordinary characters by finding hidden objects, repairing broken items, creating an environment and bringing color to it. It's like Pixar's Soul vibe placed in a dream world! 

The project is in pre-production, defining the production pipeline, enriching gameplay, environment-building, and forming a team. A public demo will be presented in June 2022, and early access to the game will be available on Steam in Q4 2022 - Q2 2023 with a ~$19.99 price point. The game will be updated regularly and build a community early on.

It is a highly autonomous position to drive the entire product through its lifecycle — from shaping the vision to product delivery while empowering the team and integrating the insights from players’ feedback.

We are looking for a product manager who can create an accessible virtual reality experience and manage all the stages of the project from early launch to worldwide release and live-ops.

You will have the following tasks:

  • create and develop a new product;

  • proven successful track record of launching products;
  • excellent written and oral communication skills in English;
  • ability to be an informal leader for cross-functional teams;
  • at least one example of an effectively implemented document (product strategy, roadmap, etc.) drafted in the past.

A big plus will be:

  • bachelor’s degree (MBA preferred);
  • experience as a Product Manager in the development of virtual reality games;
  • technical background and/or experience in game or art design;
  • ability to work in the CEST time zone;
  • passion for games.

Our benefits:

  • opportunity to develop a virtual reality product;
  • ambitious product development tasks;
  • opportunity to upgrade skills through a personal development plan and knowledge sharing;
  • culture of openness, transparency and common sense;
  • bright and memorable events and valuable benefits (like VHI, consultations with a psychologist and birthday gifts).

  • Honesty - we communicate openly and honestly and are ready to express our opinion and listen to the ideas of others;
  • Respect - we respect each other and value employees' individual and overall contributions to the company;
