Business Development - Steam Team

Apply for this position.

As a member of the Steam Business team, you are responsible for running Steam. With the rest of the Business team, you'll work to make sure that Steam is the best place for developers and publishers to sell their games and the best place for customers to buy and play them.

You'll need to have demonstrated a capability to work professionally with external partners and internal groups on an ongoing business capacity to ship products, projects and features. Your role is a blend of business development, platform feature advocate, marketing director, and producer -- you'll work with internal teams and external developers and publishers around the world, both digitally and in-person, to publish and market content, ship new Steam features, and create events and promotions.

Like any job at Valve, members of the Steam business team shift from project to project, filling different niches depending on their areas of expertise and interest. Some folks on the team are designing our seasonal sales events, while others ramp up our PC cafe program, run data analysis on the effectiveness of new platform features, or design and build new features with our dev team. Because we work at the intersection of platform, partner and customer, there's a constant flow of new and exciting projects to take on.

  • You love to take on big exciting projects and shepherd them from inception to release, but you're equally happy to take part in the day-to-day work of managing a platform and storefront
  • Games industry knowledge a must and games industry experience is really helpful, but not required
