Job Position:

Role: O'Saurus Studios is seeking a social media and marketing manager for a part-time, fixed-term role to promote our flagship game, Call of the Golden Valley. Call of the Golden Valley is an atmospheric, narrative detective game with a target audience of mystery and true crime fans.

Diverse and junior candidates are encouraged to apply! We value aptitude and a friendly professional attitude more than an extensive resume. 

Rate: $30-45 per hour depending on expertise and experience. 

Job Responsibilities:

  • Create and post video and graphic content for game accounts on social media (primarily Instagram & TikTok).
  • Stay current with social media trends and algorithm changes to follow best practices. 
  • Understand that our target audience is not necessarily a "typical gamer" and adapt the media strategy accordingly.
  • Build engagement within the community.


  • Work collaboratively and professionally with other members of the team.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Knowledge of professional image editing software (Photoshop or similar) and video editing software.
  • Previous experience growing a following for an indie game. 


  • Personal interest in true crime or mystery content.

The Game: Set in the stunning High Country of regional Victoria, Call of the Golden Valley is an atmospheric, narrative detective game. Find a missing friend, untangle the ramblings of misguided treasure hunters, and explore each character's unique relationship with the truth. 

The game is set in a fictionalised small regional town and the adjoining valley near Alpine National Park in Victoria.

The Studio: O'Saurus Studios is a small, woman-led indie game studio based in Melbourne (Brunswick & Southbank). We  love unconventional narratives, human psychology, and unique settings. We are open to remote workers, but you must be located in and authorised to work in Australia.
