Job Description:

Blizzard Entertainment seeks a global public relations manager to drive our communications efforts, primarily for our upcoming mobile games (set in the Warcraft franchise). We are looking for a focused, detail- oriented multitasker who excels in a deadline- driven environment yet can adapt quickly to changing goals and timelines.

The ideal candidate has at least five to eight years of experience in- house at a gaming company or at an agency, has managed international or multi- market programs, and has successfully launched mobile games. Strategic thinking, familiarity with the latest communications techniques, and the ability to advocate for communications needs to stakeholders with varying levels of PR understanding are musts.

The global PR manager will be responsible for the development of the games’ global PR and communications strategy, reporting to the franchise PR director, while working closely and collaboratively with the locally based global communications, global publishing, and game development teams, as well as in- house and agency PR partners around the world. The role will be responsible for media relations, developer interaction, message development, comms planning, trend pitching, crisis communications, and managing relevant asset creation and media coverage reporting. Success will be measured by the games’ global PR performance.

Covid- 19 Hiring Update: We’ve transitioned to a work- from- home model and we’re continuing to interview and hire during this time. This role is expected to begin as a remote position. We understand each person’s circumstances may be unique and will work with you to explore possible interim options.
