Collectors Universe has multiple business lines that grade, authenticate, and sell millions of high-value, record-setting collectibles every quarter. We're the leader in third-party authentication and grading services for high-value collectibles including trading cards (Professional Sports Authenticator), coins (Professional Coin Grading Services), video games (Wata), event tickets, autographs, and memorabilia, and with your help we can continue to grow rapidly. Our goal is to make the joy of collecting accessible to everyone -- collectors looking to complete their set, inventors looking to maximize the value of their collection, and anyone who’s looking to preserve a game, card or coin that reminds them of fond memories in their lives. We’re looking for product managers who can create the next generation of engaging products for collectors, scalable, intuitive software for our internal customers, and innovative, best in class solutions to bring delight to The Hobby. What products will you create to disrupt the collectibles space?
Our services span collectible coins, trading cards, video games, event tickets, autographs, and memorabilia through our subsidiaries, which include Professional Sports Authenticators (PSA), Professional Coin Grading Services (PCGS), Wata, Certified Coin Exchange (CCE), Collectors Corner, Set Registry, Collectors.com, and the Long Beach Expo collectibles trade show. Since our founding in 1986, we have graded and authenticated more than 80 million items. We employ over 1,000 people across our Santa Ana, CA headquarters, New Jersey, Hong Kong, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo.
We are a diverse team of product managers, designers, and data analysts. We build the products and services used in our internal operations and by millions of collectors around the world. We are rapidly expanding our team and you will have the opportunity to help evolve how our team works. We partner closely with a talented group of engineers, designers, marketers, and operations folks. Most of our team is based in Santa Ana, CA but we have people that work remotely from other regions across the US.
Part of building a successful team is having an inclusive workplace where all people and ideas are welcome. We leverage tools to get anonymous feedback and celebrate the work of our peers. Additionally, we believe strongly in providing opportunities for talent mobility & experimentation in your job with other parts of the team and company.
We focus on delivering strong business results with key metrics to track our successes and failures. We like to have fun, celebrate our wins, and learn from our mistakes.
