It’s a really exciting time to be at Space Ape Games. We’ve created a fast-paced environment that promotes genuine autonomy and we have projects at all stages of the development cycle. We launched our hit music game, Beatstar, in 2021 and we’re following its success with Countrystar less than two years later. We also officially launched our first puzzle game in July, Chrome Valley Customs, and we’re preparing to scale this game to global success. On top of all this, we’re running several mature live games and working on some exciting new projects behind the scenes!

In all of this, our players are at the heart of what we do, and giving them outstanding support is a big part of it. That is why we are looking for a skilled Player Support Team Leader to manage our dedicated support team.

Do you have a strong background in customer support, know instinctively what good communication looks like, and have lead teams before in a supervisor or similar leadership role? Are you looking to step up your game and becoming responsible for a number of diverse games, in an environment that allows you a ton of freedom to shape things the way you think is best? Then you might be in the right spot!

This role requires a blend of operational experience, strategic insight, and leadership skills matching the style of our company which is collaborative, unbureaucratic and down to earth.

You will report to our Player Support Manager and will work closely with them and our development teams to not only get the work done but challenge the way we do things in order to improve. We seek someone who thrives on change and wants to see an impact from their work.

This is a remote position. Our main office is located in the United Kingdom and we are looking for someone who can work most of our core business hours, which creates certain limitations around timezones.
