DIRECTOR, CREATOR PROGRAMS (R23117)
WHAT MAKES US EPIC?
At the core of Epic’s success are talented, passionate people. Epic prides itself on creating a collaborative, welcoming, and creative environment. Whether it’s building award-winning games or crafting engine technology that enables others to make visually stunning interactive experiences, we’re always innovating.
Being Epic means being a part of a team that continually strives to do right by our community and users. We’re constantly innovating to raise the bar of engine and game development.
What You’ll Do
As we seek to scale the creator ecosystem across our games and marketplaces, we will increasingly consolidate around persistent programs and temporal activations. A program will define a creator’s relationship with Epic in terms of their access to create, publish and monetize their work across our platform. An activation will provide program participants certain temporary incentives to perform new actions using our tools that align with our strategic initiatives.
We need a Director of Creator Programs to collaboratively lead this effort with an eye on building the open metaverse where hundreds of thousands of creators can make a living using Epic’s offerings. They will be responsible for defining the program strategy and influencing cross functionally to align and drive through end-to-end execution. This includes mapping the go-to-market interfaces across the company, organizing them into a unified program with a streamlined brand, destination and messaging and establishing the right feedback loop from creators to seek continual optimization. They will define success metrics for the program with a focus on creator outcomes and work with the marketing, education, community and product teams to ensure that we are adequately supporting creators and giving them the most leverage with our products.
The ideal candidate will have a thorough understanding of the creator program ecosystem as well as a deep empathy for how creators run their businesses. They can lead through influence and can shift between product, policy and marketing discussions easily.
In This Role You Will
- Define program structure and determine if Epic should have a single unified Partner program across all games, products and marketplaces or smaller discrete programs.
- Determine with analytics minimum requirements to be eligible for both programs and incentives.
- Understand best levers to directly incentivize creators to use new strategic products.

- Design process to consistently measure the health and sentiment of our creators.
- Drive execution across teams to create the best program experience for creators and work closely with product marketing to define a healthy feedback loop to highlight product and program improvements in order to have creators succeed and grow.
What We’re Looking For
- Experience in developing program strategy, program management, project management or consulting with a focus on creators/gaming a plus.
