MMO Community Manager

Description

Goblinworks is the exciting fast-paced developer of Pathfinder Online - a fantasy sandbox MMO based on the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game from Paizo Publishing. We believe the future of online games is in player interaction, not sterile pre-scripted stories. We are starting a player-centric game company that is built to last.

We are beginning to form the Publishing team that will support our game as we begin live operations.  This position is more than a forum moderator.  We are hiring someone who can be given a minimum of direction and oversight, and can engage across a wide variety of tasks independently.

The position involves working with guilds and player groups to raise awareness about Pathfinder Online and a sales promotion related to the start of monetization of the game.  It involves increasing the tempo of our social media communications with our fans and expanding the footprint of our awareness beyond the core Pathfinder community.  It involves migrating our existing forum community from their original home on our parent company's website to a new venue being created exclusively for players.  It involves creating and sustaining connections between our players and our development team - facilitating a true two-way communication.

Applicants must demonstrate

  • Ability to operate without active supervision
  • Extremely strong written communication skills
  • A knowledge of the MMO community space - who the guilds are, who key thought leaders are, how to use access points like forums and social media to connect with the MMO social graph
  • Good selling skills - ability to close

Ideal candidates would have one or more

  • Experience working for an MMO project that is in live operations
  • A background with guild/clan membership and active participation
  • A sales background
  • Skill with Photoshop, NLE video systems, Twitter, and Facebook

Perks

  • Substantial stock options – we are a small studio and want to make sure everyone has a stake in the company
  • Commissions derived from sales
  • Medical, dental, eye, etc – of course

 

We are based in Redmond, just east of Seattle. Must be willing to relocate to the Seattle area. You must be able to legally work full time in the United States. Goblinworks is an equal-opportunity employer.
