This is a senior-level role.
We are looking for a veteran marketing, communications, and community strategist to join the studio developing the hit survival experience, The Long Dark.
In this role, you will support the studio director by planning and executing a strategy for brand communication and community engagement around current and future product launches. This includes conceiving, planning, and orchestrating multi-layered campaigns that promote the studio and product brands to an international audience.
The ideal candidate has a wealth of experience in community engagement, marketing, and public relations, having supported the launch of multiple games at either an independent developer or mid-scale publishing entity.
You should have experience working “in the trenches” of community development and product/brand management, be able to liaise with internal and external partners, and bring an expert knowledge of primary platforms and tools for community and brand engagement. This includes social media, streaming, community forums, the media, and events, amongst other things. Beyond this, you must have a strong understanding of the digital and retail business of games, and the major markets, players, and platforms.
A deep familiarity with the video game industry and community culture is essential. Excellent communication skills, an ironclad work ethic, a deeply collaborative nature, and a strong desire to execute creative and thoughtful brand and community strategies are all critical to this role.
This is a full-time salaried position, and can be fulfilled from either our Vancouver studio, or remotely. Please note that as a Canadian corporation, Hinterland is primarily focused on interviewing candidates who are legally permitted to work in Canada.
Hinterland is an equal-opportunity employer. The studio is comprised of a multi-national, multi-ethnic team. We value a diversity of backgrounds. We also value veteran experience and a strong work ethic that supports the studio’s culture and values. Our work ethic and production methodology is built around a “Getting Shit Done” paradigm. We embrace a flexible working environment that affords our team members the opportunity to enjoy family time and exercise self-care. We balance this out with very high expectations about the quality of output from everyone on the team. We offer a variety of perks, but do not believe perks are the same thing as culture.
(Also, everyone who joins our team gets a pair of slippers. They are nice slippers.)
Please note that while we will acknowledge receipt of all applications, we will only follow-up with those candidates who we feel have the highest potential for the position.
