Your go-to weapon will not be your Skana, but your keyboard. Your knowledge of current social trends is only surpassed by your ability to write clever, concise, on-brand marketing copy. You’re just as passionate about writing as you are about distilling information down to its core themes and finding creative ways to translate that message to the perfect, shareable bite of social media.

  • Keep track of the latest social media trends and present opportunities for Warfame’s engagement strategy 
  • Work closely with our marketing and development teams to become an expert on our games and brand voice and tone
  • Transform and organize huge, constantly changing feature lists into captivating, cohesive, and concise marketing copy that captures the spirit and narrative of its source material
  • Work directly with advertising team to deliver copy and concepts that successfully cut through the noise 
  • Curate community-generated content that every player needs to see, from awe-inspiring fan art to must-watch videos

REQUIREMENTS

  • BA in Communications, Journalism, English, Marketing or a related field
  • 1-3 years experience in the games, movie, television and/or music industries in a marketing and/or advertising capacity that involved copywriting for various mediums
