${ timestamp }} · 
🇳🇴 Oslo

From critically acclaimed The Longest Journey to the very first sci-fi MMO Anarchy Online, to the brutal trials of Conan Exiles, our 28-year history has set our players uniquely up for a journey to the harsh world of Dune, where the continual battle for survival and spice will bring a challenge that is Legendary.

The Funcom team consists of over 250 people located in 5 studios - Norway, the US, Portugal, Sweden, a newly opened Romania studio - plus an additional UI/UX hub in the UK. As part of Funcom’s ongoing growth, and completing a successful turnaround, Funcom is now backed by Tencent, the largest online gaming company in the world!

As part of Funcom’s ongoing expansion, the company is strengthening its in-house marketing department with several new positions, among those a Copywriter. 

Your Mission in Funcom:

Funcom is looking for a Copywriter to join the creative services team’s mission of delivering creative assets and copy on all marketing projects. This role would report to the Marketing Art Director and will work closely with the creative services team based in Oslo, Norway. Permanent location for this role is ideally in Oslo, but other Funcom studios or remote work can be considered.

The Copywriter is a master wordsmith and could write this job description better than any of us. You will be the person everyone on the Marketing team, the Sales & Distribution team, and the Community Engagement team turns to when they need copy to support communication, marketing activities, sales, advertisement, and everything else that requires expertly written text.

You will understand Funcom titles inside & out and can communicate them in a clear and interesting way. You will work with both developers and marketeers to capture the essence of games and their components, in a way that excites the audience.

The Copywriter can write long, interesting blog posts, but can also explain exactly why someone should buy a game in a four-word ad.

How you can have an impact in your position:

  • Your word will represent our games and convince players to buy our games, creating anything from video text boards to store texts, announcements, newsletters, and short ad copy
  • Working closely with cross-functional marketing teams, you will get to work on many aspects of bringing a game to market and keeping our audience informed
  • Spearheading new, creative ideas that will inform how we position and talk about our games
  • Ensure messaging is consistent across platforms, channels, brands, and games
  • Work closely with the developers to understand how to communicate our games, creating key messaging that will position them with our audience
  • Collaborate with the rest of the Creative Services team on creative assets such as videos and marketing art with copy that supports the assets and the game’s tone of voice
  • Establish best practices, tone of voice, and guidelines for messaging across games

We are looking for someone that has:

  • Proven experience with writing, editorial, content marketing, or journalism
  • A high work capacity, being able to perfectly balance speed, accuracy, and quality
  • The ability to be deadline-driven, self-motivated, and detail-oriented
  • Not afraid to ask questions, to research, and to proactively find information to inform copy
  • Understands how to communicate with different audiences, tailoring messaging to the recipient, the channel, and the platform
  • The ability to understand the nuances of a brand’s tone of voice
  • Strong knowledge of English grammar and usage, requiring no proofreading by others
  • Passion for the video games; you understand games, how they work, what excites people about them, and you are able to communicate that with inspiration and clarity

Please apply in English.
