Mixing the world-class expertise of six different crafts – Product Marketing, User Acquisition, User Experience Research, Market Intelligence, Marketing Video Production, and Player Experience, our team’s main mission is to fuel the growth of our games portfolio.
Largely embedded within game teams and in close collaboration with a large variety of stakeholders, our role is to identify, anticipate and make sure to satisfy our target audiences’ needs and wants.

You will be in charge of creating and executing the Community Strategy for the game(s) you work with, providing players with experiences that drive deeper engagement, both through engaging directly with players and by bringing actionable player feedback to the game team as the voice of the player.
