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 in-studio or at stadium-sized venues. We deliver monetary results by authentically translating our publishers’ and brand sponsors’ business outcomes to this massively diverse community.

We seek out ambitious partners and are the leading esports company for new gaming titles.

We are experiencing breakneck growth and are looking for an individual that loves to make connections and steward lasting business partnerships; for someone who gets fired-up thinking about executing on ambitious esports products alongside the next generation of esports developers and publishers and our expanding, 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!”
