We are a crowdfunded company and have a dedicated and enthusiastic community of backers who are helping us create the “Best Damn Space Sim Ever”. We want to build the best we can deliver and we believe wholeheartedly in the value of exceptional diverse talent. Cloud Imperium Games is a Global Publisher/Developer in the interactive entertainment industry, building the next generation of immersive games of uncompromising fidelity and scale. Star Citizen, the record-breaking space sim and massively multiplayer online game, is currently in Open Alpha Access but already has over 5 million users. We are also developing Squadron 42, a cinematic single-player adventure set in the same universe. Join us as we break boundaries and make videogame history. Where? This role is based in Los Angeles and will work with a highly dispersed marketing team based in LA, Texas, the UK, Germany, and Montreal. This is an inherently collaborative leadership role and will require you to interface regularly with our brand and product teams, creative services, marketing production, website and platform, community, and direct marketing depts. Why? After a few years of experimenting with earned, owned, and lite paid channels, we are ready to bring onboard a leader to take us to the next level of global growth, and write the next chapter of our paid growth story. We aren’t neophytes to incredible growth. We started in 2012 as a tiny startup with a dream and exploded onto the crowdfunding scene to become the biggest endeavor ever launched by the enthusiasm of the crowd. Today we’ve generated over $600M in revenues, both from crowdfunding and five plus years of Early Access sales, as we deliver the most transparent and ambitious gaming project in history. We have years of data on how our player base has grown, and we are now looking for our next leader to take our nascent Growth and Lifecycle Marketing team and continue to build it into a best-in-class global team to supercharge our next stage of growth. Star Citizen occupies a unique position in the games industry in that it is still actively in development yet is already playable now by thousands of gamers daily. Our players are also passionate testers whose feedback directly results in improvements and enhancements to the game on an ongoing basis. We therefore need a savvy and thoughtful growth leader who understands that we’re not just a product looking for users, but a growing digital movement seeking fellow gamers excited to help us build the next great sci-fi game.
