(Closed) Communications Specialist
We are looking for a Communications Specialist to join the Remedy Publishing Team. You will work with the Community Manager and Communications Director, to whom you’ll report. You get to work on exciting global game projects like our two upcoming games with Epic Publishing that will set the world alight, the award-winning Control franchise, the mysterious CrossfireX / CrossfireHD and multiplayer genre-defining Vanguard, as well as the Remedy brand. This is a unique opportunity to join an experienced team and a world-renowned studio that has the attention of the global gaming audience.
We are looking for an experienced, proactive individual to join our Publishing team to help the Communications Director and Community Manager’s workload so they can take a break once in a while. You will play a key part in both internal and external Remedy communications and ensure the Remedy brand and our games are correctly represented and that information… flows.
You are expected to be detail-oriented, value high quality work and stick to deadlines when they constantly change around us. We want someone who is keen to solve problems as they come up and before they can escalate. You are someone who understands that we live and work in a global, multicultural environment and need to keep many perspectives in mind when we communicate.
You love video games and follow the culture, but have a wider perspective into industry matters. Perspective is good. Having interests outside of video games is great, too – our team has a birdwatcher, a home brewing enthusiast, a passionate cyclist and a guy who likes to stand in line in the rain for 12 hours to cop some Supreme. Liking old school hip hop is a good thing.
