Marketing and Community Manager
About The Role
This is a combined marketing and community role with a primary focus on marketing and selling our products and developing and building our audience of fans.
You’ll be at the heart of every aspect of our public outreach, from defining goals and planning marketing schedules, to talking with influencers and being the first point of contact for our fans via e-mail, forums, and social media.
Working closely with the management team but with a good degree of autonomy and creative flexibility, you’ll hit the ground running when the role begins in August.
You deliver thoughtful and attention-grabbing marketing campaigns, and enjoy all aspects of building communities.
You’re able to clearly and articulately communicate your ideas, both verbally and in the written word, love streaming, can produce creative audio and video content from scratch, and know how to talk with fans and media alike.
Leading on projects and generating your own ideas for outreach comes second nature to you, and you’re driven by what demonstrably works - utilising data and analytics to guide your work.
You’ll be a fan of games, and ideally - but not essentially - strategy games and boardgames in particular, familiar with titles such as XCOM, Civilization, Shadowrun Returns, and beyond.
Feel free to send us your CV, as we're always looking for talented individuals to add to the team. If you are interested in a role advertised, please send a covering letter and CV to email@example.com
About The Role
This role is for a programmer who will be working on a groundbreaking Unreal Engine 4 project.
You’ll be an integral part of our coding team, working alongside a talented group on a very special, high visibility project with a major tech partner.
As a significant part of a compact team, you’ll help take the work all the way from the planning stage, to execution, delivery, and post-launch support.
You'll know your way around Unreal Engine 4 and C++, and be familiar with the basics of source control and it’s a help if you know Agile development techniques.
Enthusiastic about creating games, you’ll be a fan of the medium and ideally - but not essentially - familiar with titles such as XCOM, Civilization, Shadowrun Returns, and beyond. An interest in newsgames and storytelling is also a plus.
As a strong team player, you’ll work well with others and be able to clearly and articulately communicate your ideas, both verbally and in the written word.
