We’re looking for a Head of Social Media to join our global marketing team in Chicago. This role will lead our social media efforts for the company. From optimizing our overall social media engagement strategy, to content planning and managing our core platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Twitch) it’s all about connecting with the gamer audience in authentic ways. We need a social media enthusiast and leader who understands the ins and out of using all social media platforms and has their pulse on the gaming world including hot new titles and trends.
You’ll help develop our social voice, interest in our products, and celebrate gamers and our esports teams. You’ll also work with social media managers around the world to ensure alignment to a core strategy while keeping us locally relevant to gamers everywhere.
