After discovering that most children, especially girls, are put off learning to code and create, we set ourselves a challenge to invent the best ways to introduce professional digital skills to all newbies aged 8+. We created a fantasy Internet Universe filled with quirky characters, strange stories, magical worlds, and cute fluffy kittens, to inspire even the most reluctant technophobes!
We’re looking for an individual who has a passion for digital marketing and copywriting - with a fun and quirky tone of voice to create attention-grabbing posts which are specific to our story-driven adventure game and mission. Excellent writing, communication, and analytical skills are a must. Basic design skills, particularly in Illustrator, is a bonus.

As well as copywriting, researching, blogging, and other admin tasks.
You must have excellent creative writing skills with a strong understanding of digital marketing, particularly social media/content marketing, and adapting writing styles for different audiences. In addition to analyse data (e.g. Google Analytics) in order to optimise results. Strong communication and organisational skills (both team-oriented and self-motivated), passion for growth hacking and making an impact, as well as strong attention to detail and ability to prioritise tasks across projects are essential.
