About Skillz:

Today, people spend more time playing video games than they do playing all physical sports, and eSports are poised to become bigger than the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL combined. Skillz provides the technology that powers an eSports industry forecast to exceed as much as $40 billion in revenue by 2020.

As the eSports provider for over 13,000 game developers, Skillz enables any mobile game to be turned into a competitive eSport that can also be broadcast on major streaming sites like Twitch and YouTube. We do this by integrating our unique layer of code directly into a mobile app, which activates our end-to-end tournament administration and other important features like player matching, anti-cheating mechanisms, customer support and a built-in loyalty program. Using our patented technology stack, we’ve already hosted more than 500 million tournaments for 15 million players around the world.

Skillz has raised over $53 million in funding from sources including Telstra, Liberty Global, and the owners of the New England Patriots, Milwaukee Bucks, New York Mets and Sacramento Kings. In our quest to make gaming better for players and developers, we’re looking for savvy, driven and enthusiastic teammates to help us build the future of sports. If you’re excited about defining a multibillion dollar industry, building an awesome product, or working with cutting-edge technology, Skillz just might be for you!

Our Culture:

We are true believers in electronic sports, so don’t be surprised if you see us playing mobile games at our desks or in the kitchen. At Skillz, this type of behavior is encouraged! You can also catch us at our weekly game nights playing anything from Super Mario Kart to Codenames over dinner, while discussing new technologies or brainstorming ideas to improve our business.

Not a “gamer”? Don’t worry about it. Every Skillzian brings a unique perspective to the team, and we bond over plenty of activities that don’t involve games. We’re working to build a truly groundbreaking company, and we want top-notch people to join us in that mission. As the creators and leaders of a new marketplace, we work with a “do whatever it takes” mentality, and frankly, we get the job done!

Our team is comprised of passionate, intelligent and creative individuals who consistently seek out new challenges and knowledge. We embrace out-of-the-box strategies to propel our business forward, and foster a culture where every person’s voice is heard. Our team comes from diverse backgrounds, and our leaders have a strong history of funding and building successful enterprises. If you're up for the challenge, we’d love to meet you.

What You’ll Do:

Support Lifecycle Management to carry out exciting and robust player-facing initiatives, collect data, and execute new campaigns based on player learnings. You will assist in deploying email campaigns (basic HTML understanding is a must), scheduling push notifications, developing art assets (Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, or similar program strongly suggested), and writing copy.

Specific Duties Include:

  • Edit HTML-based email for seasonal, ad hoc, and weekly campaign deploys.
  • Schedule and deploy highly-visible campaigns with a focus on player-first accuracy.
  • Maintain high quality work and attention to detail in a high-pressure, deadline-driven environment.
  • Write compelling copy to engage our players in exciting events and special offers.
  • Develop copy and art assets based on the full lifecycle of a player: entering the game, fostering confidence in play, encouraging in-app spend, cultivating player engagement, and re-engaging lapsed or soon-to-lapse players.

Your Skillz:

  • Beginning to intermediate knowledge of HTML
  • Outstanding writing, editing, and proofreading skills
  • Process-oriented with a high attention to detail
  • Graphic design skills are a significant plus
  • A high level of creativity, attention to detail, time management, and organizational skills
  • Proficiency in the Microsoft Office Suite of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
  • 2-5 years of experience in professional organization performing similar duties
  • Experience in the gaming industry a plus
