Summerfall Studios is looking for a Social Content Specialist, focused on TikTok, who is eager to grow and gain experience in a studio environment, working and training under an experienced games marketer. This role is open to both experienced creators and entry-level social media specialists.
You will be managing and building Summerfall Studios’ TikTok audience. You'll support our growth on Tiktok from the ground up - working alongside the Marketing Director to build the channel, manage the branding, and begin posting.
You won't be responsible for strategy, communications, press engagement, pitch decks, or influencers etc. No wearing every hat, here. At times, you'll occasionally generate ideas or content for Twitter posts.
You'll be given ideas to execute as well as have space to come up with your own, and you'll work alongside experienced marketers and brand managers, receiving training in all things marketing, social media, and anything that interests you in the space. You won't be left out to sea to post - any content will be approved prior to posting by members of the team, but it'll be prioritized so you're not waiting and missing out on active trends.
We'll teach you how to track progress on videos and content, determine strategies, and collaborate with the creative team to get the content you need.
We are passionate about finding and nurturing the right talent, and we encourage underrepresented candidates to apply. Perspective and life experience are valuable and important to us. We are a diverse team on a number of axes and are excited to explore and expand to make amazing games that convey deep stories and unique experiences together.
This role is a 7 month full or part-time contract located in Melbourne, Australia. Ideally, this is an in-studio role, but we have very flexible work policies and are happy for you to work from home part-time. We are also open to the right candidate for remote applicants in other time zones. Ideally, you will have strong crossover with AEST/AEDT.
The remuneration for this position is $60-75k AUD package, and ideally full time, though we are happy to explore part-time for the right candidate.
