Fundamentally Games works with developers and organisations to transform games into living games, providing โ€˜liveops-as-a-serviceโ€™ to get more players, doing more things, more often, for longer.

Weโ€™re a small but growing diverse team, and we value work life balance, so we have flexible working policies in place, subject to a few conditions and the requirements of projects you may be working on of course! Firstly, we all work from home (or from a local hot desk) and (when there isnโ€™t a global pandemic) meet up in person around once a month, usually in London. We have flexible working hours to support our team to be able to do their job around their personal commitments. For example, if you have kids you can work between the hours your children are in school, or you can do more hours a day and only work 4 days a week. We also let you work on personal projects and actively encourage you to take part in game jams, industry events and activities that will help you build your career as well as your role with us.

The ideal candidate is a graduate of either a games or sales/marketing related degree, or has equivalent experience, with demonstrable knowledge of games and the games industry, and sales/marketing.

Your role will be to assist in the management of our sales pipeline, setup and undertake business development meetings, manage attendance and scheduling of events, assist with general marketing of the business across its various channels, and support the management team, in particular with sales and marketing related activity.
