Who We’re Looking For:

Support the execution of Live Ops and our exciting and robust player-facing initiatives, collect data, and execute new campaigns based on player learnings. You will join a dedicated team passionate about quality and delivering excellence in player marketing. Deploy email campaigns (basic HTML understanding is a must), schedule push notifications, develop art assets (Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, or similar program strongly suggested), and write copy. 

What You Will Do:

  • Design game and campaign-based artwork for multiple marketing channels.
  • Write compelling copy to engage our players in exciting events and special offers.
  • Edit HTML-based email for seasonal, ad hoc, and weekly campaign deploys.
  • Schedule and deploy highly-visible campaigns with a focus on player-first accuracy.
  • Maintain high quality work and attention to detail in a high-pressure, deadline-driven environment.
  • Develop copy and art assets based on the full lifecycle of a player: entering the game, fostering confidence in play, encouraging in-app spend, cultivating player engagement, and re-engaging lapsed or soon-to-lapse players.

Your Skillz:

  • Outstanding creative writing, editing, and proofreading skills
  • Working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier, and/or InDesign
  • Beginning to intermediate knowledge of HTML
  • Process-oriented with a high attention to detail
  • A high level of creativity, attention to detail, time management, and organizational skills
  • Proficiency in the Microsoft Office Suite of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
  • 2-5 years of experience in professional organization performing similar duties
  • Experience in the gaming industry a plus

We offer a robust training program to get you up-to-speed with 7, 30, and 90 day goals to challenge and engage you. We never get bored with so many thrilling initiatives to bring to our amazing player-base. Your team thrives in a fast-paced environment in which everyone is cross-trained to step in for one another in a pinch. We execute new and innovative campaigns every week, and everyone’s voice is heard. This is the entrance into the gaming industry you’ve been looking for!
