(Expired) Website & Social Content Associates

1 month ago by Hitmarker

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

To facilitate our expansion into the wider video game market, we’re looking to hire 3 full time staff members to manage our website and social media content. This is a slightly different role to some of your other social media positions, as data entry and customer service will also play a major role in your day-to-day.

We’ve built Hitmarker to the size it is by aggregating all of the jobs we are aware of in esports and posting them to our platform. This means that for some, we have to post manually.

We’ll be extrapolating this approach in the gaming industry when we branch out to cover it, and that is going to be mean more jobs to post. A *lot* more jobs to post.

That’s where you come in!

This role will involve searching the web for all of the esports jobs we can find in a given day, entering them into the backend of our website, vetting and moderating user-submitted jobs and then lining up promotional posts on social media about the day’s jobs.

Therefore, attention to detail is really key for us to see from applicants. We’ll be offering training on the job; there’s no real strict experience requirements, but if you also come with great writing skills and are naturally tech savvy then you’ll be off to a great start.

We’ve got a lot to offer, and you’d be joining a dedicated team with a knack of doing a lot with a little. We’re gearing up to take things to the next level now, and we think we’ll produce something really special that will benefit the whole gaming industry.

If you’re ready to join us for the ride, send in a unique cover letter (please tailor it to this job; we see hundreds each week and can spot a copy & paste document a mile away.

(Expired) Graphic Designer

1 month ago by Hitmarker

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

For our graphic designer, we’re looking for someone with great design skills that can work under our Creative Lead to continue to define the visual identity of our brand and produce assets for web, email and social.

Another key task will be the creation of in-depth infographics that paint a picture of the hiring landscapes in the industries we operate in. We have a lot of data we can share with the world, and we need your help to get it out there in the most informative and attractive way.

As we’re a small team, there’s room to be versatile in this job. If you have motion design skills then be sure to tell us, and any experience in web / UI design would be a real hit.

If we’re summing up your profile one sentence at a time, be sure to check out the job offer and let us know you’re interested with an application!
