Glitchers are a highly motivated, talented team that punch well above their weight in terms of quality and output. They've been making games that not only entertain but go beyond entertainment since 2013. Collaborations with forward thinking brands as well as creating original IP are all part of the day job.

We're delighted to offer an exceptional role for a Social Media & Community Manager. You will be part of a diverse, welcoming team whose aim is to spread Glitchers games far and wide.

The Social Media & Community Manager is responsible for not only the retention of Glitchers core gaming audience, but also growth of their portfolio of titles to new audiences and undiscovered communities and ambassadors.

The role covers the full product life-cycle across all social and owned channels from announcement through to post launch and service. You will be adept to manage relationships with both playing communities and social media influencers, playing a key role to define the strategy to grow and evolve our reach, taking inspiring content beyond the core gamer community, continually refreshing and energising our immersive studio culture.

This role will see you take responsibility for your own titles. You will work closely with the studio to learn about the games and establish key spokespeople for content across all relevant channels. You will identify community issues/talking points and offer consultancy on best course of action.

This role enjoys a lot of autonomy but requires an outgoing, capable Social Media professional who can work as part of a team and evangelise new ways forward. Though we’d prefer a proven games industry track record, we will consider those stepping up to the next level in their careers as well as those looking for a new opportunity. Experience in running beta communities preferred.


  • Proven experience and in depth knowledge of Community Management, Social Media platforms and Forums
  • Strong understanding of building all channels, but specifically Discord and Twitch
  • Demonstrable follower growth and coherent content provision across all social media platforms
  • Knowledge of relevant audiences and understanding of game development
  • Passion for social media, understanding of how to engage, grow channels and analyse trends and platforms
  • Great with people, good communication skills and able to build new relationships
  • Experience in handling multiple projects, while working to meet live deadlines
  • Experience of recording devices, sound equipment and live streaming software such as OBS
  • Understanding of video editing software, for editing features, gameplay capture, green screen, in house documentaries and interviews etc.
  • Interest and knowledge of the video games industry is essential
  • Interest in multiplayer party games would be an advantage but not a prerequisite
  • Remote is OK, but candidates must be in the UK
  • Fluency in written and verbal English language is essential. Additional languages a bonus.
  • Availability for standups at 9:15am GMT daily


  • Work From Home
  • Weekly Socials
  • Pension Plan
  • Training & Development
  • 28 Days Paid Annual Leave
  • Monthly video game allowance/budget

Important: Please, no recruiters. Contractors will also be considered, please include day rate and salary expectations in your application.
