A day in the life of Director of Product Austin

“I want to help our company get to the next level and I’m very happy everyone has that same goal.”

Name: Austin Yuen
Function: Director of Product
Location: Eindhoven

There’s never a dull moment at GameHouse. From nurturing a pre-released game, to analyzing and improving games that are live. But what is it like to work there? We asked Austin Yuen, Director of Product, working for GameHouse from the city of Eindhoven.

What do you do on a daily basis?

“Currently, I’m helping the Bed and Breakfast team acting as their Product Manager.  On a typical day, I look at all the Key Performance Indicators and analyze them to make sure our features, match 3, retention, and monetization are performing well.  Additionally, I assist with new features, marketing, and customer service.  In essence, I help make sure the game is running smoothly and we are going on the right path using data and customer feedback as guides.” 

How do you stay in touch with your colleagues?

“I’m currently in Taiwan, so really the only way to stay in contact with colleagues is through Zoom.  While we have scheduled meetings, I also try to have more impromptu meetings to catch up.  Also, I schedule lunch/dinner meetings with the team so we can hang out while everyone is still working from home.”

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

“Nothing specific, I usually wake up naturally around 630am.  But I’m motivated to make sure the game is improving as well as everyone on our team.”

“I feel success is making sure everyone I work with is a better version of themselves everyday.”

When are you fully successful?

I feel success is making sure everyone I work with is a better version of themselves everyday.  While the performance of the game is also important, I believe it is more important to look at long term goals and help everyone improve to get to where we need to go eventually.”
