Job Status: Full-Time
Employee Location: Burbank, CA
HERE’S THE DEAL
We are a full-service esports company that creates, manages and monetizes competitive video game leagues. We build a title’s competitive community from the ground up, growing it into a unique, professional and world-class esports operation. We manage all league operations and produce expert live entertainment, whether that’s in-studio or at stadium-sized venues. We seek out ambitious partners and act as the leading eSports company for new gaming titles.
We are anticipating breakneck growth and are looking for an individual that’s driven to deeply understand and speak to the ambitions of the next generation of competitive games, partners, and communities; for someone who gets fired-up about dreaming up, selling and promoting esports initiatives alongside a small, high-energy team. We want someone who pushes back on the status quo and does things faster and better - because that’s what gets them out of bed in the morning.
As a wise old man once said, “It’s dangerous to go alone, take this!”
