Want to be our new
Marketing Strategy Manager?
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.
This is a hands-on, fast-paced role within a rapidly evolving agency. You’ll work as part of a small team of passionate marketing professionals, helping to deliver effective and inventive marketing strategies for studios making exciting, innovative indie games – and play a key role in their success.
This would be a great role for someone with experience in an entry-level games or marketing role looking to take the next step in their career, 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.
Working with the Head of Client Strategy, you’ll develop and deliver inventive marketing strategies and plans for a range of indie game clients.
You’ll coordinate with a roster of clients, acting as their key point of contact as you guide them through the strategy development process.
You’ll research audiences, develop and distribute surveys, and pick apart competitors to figure out what they did well, what they didn’t do so well, and what our clients can learn from them.
Then, you’ll work to put all of this learning together into coherent, comprehensive and actionable reports and planning documents.
You’ll also have the opportunity to get involved with and support other areas of the business, such as promoting our agency to potential new clients.
You’ll probably get to play a lot of games, too. Yes, we do mean during working hours.
Our ideal candidate.
You know video games inside out. You especially appreciate the innovation and creativity of the indie games scene.
You’ve worked in, closely with, or adjacent to games marketing for at least a year or two. You have a good working knowledge of a range of marketing practices that are relevant to indie games, and like to stay ahead of the curve.
You’re a fast and eager learner. You pick up new skills quickly and you’re always hungry to develop your knowledge and experience.
You’re organised, logical, and detail-conscious.
You’re a confident and competent communicator, whether in person, on a call, or in writing. You’re a skilled active listener and can forge productive professional relationships.
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.
Starting salary of £23,000, with plenty of room for growth.
No commute! Work from home / the beach / anywhere with an internet connection.
Generous annual leave allowance! Two weeks off over Christmas and New Year, plus all bank holidays, plus 20 days’ accruable bookable holiday each year.
Actually reasonable work/life balance! We have a policy of avoiding overtime wherever possible, and always offer time off in lieu on the infrequent occasions where overtime is required.
Equal parental leave for all new parents or adoptive parents, with 14 weeks at full pay.
Fortnightly Fun Time Fridays! Early finish every other Friday for online team socials.
Forge your own path in a dynamic and ever-changing start-up, with tailored support to help you achieve your career goals!
