Game If You Are, a marketing agency for indie game developers and small publishers, is looking for an eager and ambitious Marketing Strategy Manager. This is a full-time permanent position and entirely remote-working, even after the pandemic.
In a fast-paced role within a rapidly evolving agency, you’ll work as part of a small team of passionate marketing professionals – delivering a high-quality marketing strategy development service for our clients. This is a hands-on and client-facing position, in which you’ll work with studios making exciting, innovative indie games – and play a key role in their success.
This would be a great role for someone with some previous experience in the games industry, ideally in a marketing role but we are also open to applicants who are looking to move into marketing from other areas such as journalism or community management.
Diversity & Inclusion: We are constantly looking to improve the diversity of our team, and believe passionately in the value of different backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences. If you don’t see many people like you working in marketing or games roles, we’d especially love to hear from you.
What you'll do.
Our ideal candidate.
This is a client-facing role, and one of your most vital traits will be your ability to forge positive relationships with our clients. You’ll be comfortable leading meetings, speaking on the phone, and presenting your work. You’ll be an impeccable communicator, whether in writing, on a call, or in person. Crucially, you’ll be a skilled active listener, with the ability to pick apart and understand what our clients are looking for, coach nervous first-time developers through the marketing process, and identify when there is an unvoiced issue bubbling away beneath the surface.
You probably live in the UK. You might live outside the UK, in which case you’ll be committed to working normal UK business hours and open to signing a freelance contract instead of a standard employment contract.
What you'll get.
How to apply.
Send your CV and a short covering email to email@example.com, using the subject line ‘Marketing Strategy Manager application’.
Applications close on 13th May 2021 at 5pm BST, with video interviews expected the following week.
Please note that, due to the volume of applications we expect to receive, we can only respond to shortlisted candidates. Sorry!
We do not work with recruiters. Never. We write this on every job ad and yet inevitably one or two still get in touch. We’re sure you’re all very lovely and excellent at what you do, but please don’t contact us. It’s a waste of all of our time. Once more for those at the back: We! Do! Not! Work! With! Recruiters!
Game If You Are is a marketing and PR agency that specialises in indie games. We’re dedicated to supporting small studios, solo developers, and micro-publishers – as well as collaborating with larger organisations who share the same goal!
Founded in 2016, we were brought together by a shared love of the creativity, innovation, and passion of the indie games scene – and a belief that the creators within it deserve better, more bespoke services, to help them attain the attention they deserve.
We're a merry band of six indie game experts, headquartered in Brighton but scattered across the UK. Our compact team allows for a highly personalised service, but between us we have 40 years' experience working in and around indie games. Our backgrounds combine not just marketing and PR, but also journalism, production, business management, and even game design and development.
As an agency, we've worked on more than 200 game marketing projects since 2016. And before that, our team had worked for marketing agencies, video game websites, YouTube channels, publishers, distributors, and in-house at indie game studios. It means we understand the process top to bottom – from game ideation to post-launch retention – and we know how everything fits together.
