Full Time
London, UK

Modern Wolf is a progressive indie games publisher. We aim to provide a healthy and fun work environment that is cognitively diverse and inclusive. We strongly encourage applications from gender, racial, and ethnic minority candidates.

Modern Wolf is a publisher of strategy and strategy-adjacent games, founded in 2019 and based in London, UK. We are the publishers of Rogue State Revolution, Necronator: Dead Wrong, and Ostranauts, among other great titles. We’re looking for a Community Manager to join our growing team.

In this role, you will collaborate with our Head of Communications and PR in maintaining and evolving our social and community platforms. You will take the lead on creating content to promote our games and our brand on social media. You will also be the primary manager of our community platforms such as Discord, where you will grow and maintain following with an emphasis on creating a positive atmosphere and routing player feedback about our games to our producers.

This role is ideal for someone with either a couple of years’ experience or those wanting to get into the games industry focusing on social and community remits. This role will be essential to supporting the Head of Comms and PR and therefore all of our developer partners. Your direct manager will support you in a mentoring capacity alongside the tasks you’ll be working on.

What does a typical week look like?

  • Collaborate with the marketing team to devise and achieve short-term and long-term goals to promote our games.
  • Create assets that can be used for every day social posting and campaigns. All our promotional art assets are created by our dedicated marketing artists, but your ability to create content will come into play daily.
  • To ensure that our communications are always high quality, you will suggest ways we can improve our reach through your knowledge of industry and social media trends.
  • Engage with the MW community with an eye to growing it and ensure that community spaces reflect our positive ethos.
  • You dedicate time every week to play Modern Wolf’s games: nobody in the company knows the ins and outs of our games better than you.
  • Supporting comms and PR with copywriting and proofreading others’ copy.
  • Participate in brainstorming sessions with the marketing team to plan captivating campaigns for each of our titles in line with the marketing strategy.
  • Maintain brand consistency across a range of digital and print promotional, marketing and event materials.
  • Cake is a very important part of our lives. And sometimes fancy donuts. Oh yeah and also ramen. When we’re back in the office, expect to go out to cool lunches with us.

We would also like for you to learn and grow, utilizing our internal expertise but also by staying on top of current industry trends and practices. We provide every employee with a training budget that they can use to grow their skills: both directly work-related and otherwise!

Your essential characteristics:

  • You are a fanatic about strategy games, and know the indie games space inside and out.
  • You’re a nerd about games, which is great because we are, too.
  • You can make a gif and know enough image editing to produce your own memes.
  • You have a native-level proficiency in English and you know good copywriting and why it works.
  • A keen interest in branding and marketing.
  • A collaborative spirit with great communication skills, who is not afraid to ask questions or be critical.

If you don’t have that much (or any!) games industry experience, but you do have all of the essential characteristics above, then we want to hear from you! Gender, racial, and ethnic minorities and folks of all abilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Due to the pandemic we are currently working remotely, but when lockdown ends and it's safe to return to our office, the preference for this role will be in-house in our central London studio at least one day a week.

We currently can onboard people who are UK-based but we're very open to talking to anybody who is generally +/- 2 hours or so of our time zone, who can be remote.

About Us

Our mission as an indie publisher is to be the partner our developers choose to work with again and again. At Modern Wolf we believe the true test of a publishers value is the decision of those it supports, to work with them again. This mantra is the benchmark against which we base all of our operations and decisions.

Why “Modern Wolf”? Wolves are loyal, family orientated, pack animals. This is how we see ourselves and our partners. Wolves are also super cool and who wouldn’t want a wolf on their logo?
