Product Developer, also known as [PDV], is a rank that replaced the [HPD] (Head of Product Development) role, supposedly so that more people could have the role rather than a single person. This position is for people that improve and create new content for the game (e.g. trains, scenery).
This role is not a managerial position.
They directly report to the Innovations Director and do not have anything to do with the Operational departments.
