Andbox is home to New York’s flagship esports teams beginning with NYXL, the New York franchise in Activision Blizzard’s 2018 Overwatch League, and soon launching the New York franchise in Activision Blizzard’s Call of Duty League. We’re ushering in a new wave of gaming culture, shining a light on gamer-first experiences to tell this robust community's stories. If you want to make an impact not only in the world of esports, but gaming culture as a whole, you have found the right place.

Your Role

Andbox’s Director of Communications will be responsible for developing and managing a multi-year PR & communications strategy for Andbox corporate, teams and players. To do this, you’ll be expected to quickly develop a deep understanding of our business. You’ll also be asked to create messaging about who we are to the world for media outlets and potential business partners who may not be familiar with esports and gaming culture. In this capacity, you will be expected to partner with our content and marketing teams to align messaging, and own various publicity initiatives including a B2B newsletter.


  • Act as the primary communications contact for our business
  • Write and edit press releases, media briefings and statements
  • Arrange and vet media interactions and interviews
  • Develop and manage internal processes for company-wide coordination on communications externally

This role will require regular reporting on outcomes and metrics of the above initiatives. We’re looking for someone with an entrepreneurial spirit, an insatiable curiosity and a drive to tell the Andbox story.

Your Profile

Our Director of Communications role just might be for you if:

  • You’ve proven yourself working with unique brands and new ideas - crafting compelling communications and garnering high-level publicity for stories that haven’t been told effectively.
  • You pay attention to the details and ensure your work is flawless before it goes out the door.
  • You have proven project management skills, and are patient, level-headed, and cool under pressure. Instead of getting flustered, you’ll dig in and work a problem to discover a creative solution.
  • You’re the proud owner of a Bachelors (or even a Masters) in journalism, public relations, communications, or marketing.
  • You have at least 4 years of work experience in your field including recently in consumer and digital media industry. That experience has helped you build an excellent network in consumer brand outlets, including ideally cultural and gaming influencers, that you can bring to the table.
  • You have strong storytelling and impeccable writing skills. Show off your superpowers by including a link in your application to your most well-crafted writing samples, and be sure to tell us your own story in your cover letter to demonstrate how you can weave your pro bio into its most compelling form. We can’t wait to hear from you!
