About Us:

Product Madness burst into life in 2007 as the brainchild of two Stanford Business MBA graduates who possessed an innate love of gaming. Initially, the entrepreneurs developed casual games for Facebook and mobile, before having a 'light-bulb moment' in 2009 and refocusing their efforts with laser-guided precision on the exploding social casino genre. They have been bringing world-class social slots to real slots fans ever since! Now part of Aristocrat Leisure, Product Madness have published hit titles Heart of Vegas, Cashman Casino, Lightning Link and FaFaFa on Facebook, iOS and Android platforms and have grown considerably in size over the past year with offices in London, Austin, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

  • We are a JIRA house, so you'll be an SME and contribute to maintaining well-defined process.
  • You won't be expected to deep dive into technical code, we give our teams the autonomy they need to succeed, but you will be able to understand technical intricacies and excel within a technology environment.
  • Delivering current projects is key to our success, but looking forward to what comes next is just as critical. Road-mapping is important, and you'll be actively encouraged to spot gaps or suggest ideas on projects that will help us to continue to deliver excellence.
  • There is no I in team, getting the best out of our collective is crucial. You will assist in everyone's development, removing roadblocks and holding teams accountable for their commitments.
  • Work should be fun, not a chore, being part of an open and light hearted environment helps us all deliver together!
