ESXL is the parent company of New York Excelsior (NYXL) - New York’s franchise in Activision Blizzard’s Overwatch League. Building upon a successful inaugural season with the league’s best record, MVP, and a roster stacked with all-stars, we’re evolving ESXL into a broader, multi-team organization that will define the identity of New York esports.

We’re looking to add a Creative Director with expertise in digital & social video to join a talented team of gaming, digital media, apparel, events, and tech veterans in our New York City office. If this is you and you're excited about the prospect of building a powerhouse New York esports brand, let's talk. Here's a snapshot of this role:


  • Develop and own the strategy for content creation across all digital channels -- Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Twitch, Discord, Reddit, website and app.
  • Build out our internal team ( producers, copywriters, graphic designers, photographers, etc.) who will execute and carry out your creative vision
  • Ensure our look, feel, tone, personality and values are reflected in and reinforced by our content
  • Work closely with our audience development, digital product, event production, and consumer products teams, as well as agency partners, to drive audience growth
  • Collaborate with our partnerships teams to conceive and execute sponsorable, scalable, multi-platform initiatives that deliver upon the goals of our brand partners
  • Oversee external content and agency relationships


  • You are a visionary, and someone who is looking towards the future in whatever you do
  • A strong POV on how brands should reach and communicate with modern day consumers, both online and off.
  • 7-10 years of experience in creative agency services or online media/publishing
  • Extensive knowledge of how digital video exists and evolves in the social and digital landscape
  • A natural storyteller with strong visual skills
  • A passion for premium digital content
  • Experience working with brands and selling ideas that address their needs; not a creative purist.
  • Experience building and running a multi-channel content team
  • Must have an ability to work independently in an entrepreneurial work environment.
