Work at Evolve

At Evolve, we’re committed to not sucking. If you’re someone who’s also interested in not sucking, and who has hobbies like… oh, playing video games, reading about the games industry, promoting video games, trying to understand why games still cost $60, etc., you might be interested in working for us!

Why work at Evolve?

Just because! Oh fine, you need more real reasons. How about…

  • Work from anywhere—home, the beach or even an alley. If your alley has internet.
  • Flexible work hours and a 35-hour work week. Focus on the “life” part of “work-life balance.”
  • Health and dental benefits.
  • Be part of an agency with an exceptional reputation, aiming to break free from traditional PR in creative and exciting ways.
  • Liberal vacation time!
  • Work on a wide range of games, from AAA blockbusters to underdog indies.
  • Educational allowance so you can get better at… well, whatever you’re doing.
  • Enjoy working on a small team, wearing various hats. No funny hats, though. Oh, who am I kidding? Wear whatever hat you want, you weirdo.
  • Pants optional.
  • We <3 diversity.

// Terminals.io Account Coordinator

Location

Remote/Work From Home. You must be a legal resident of Canada, with a reliable internet connection and your own up-to-date PC/laptop.

Description

Evolve is looking for an aspiring PR and/or customer-relations representative to join our Terminals.io team. Yes, that’s kinda strange, but we’re looking for people who fit nicely at the intersection of PR and customer service, helping game developers manage their promotional campaigns through Terminals.io, while also aiding with user support, influencer and media verification, and more. Whoever does this job will play a key role in Terminals’ future!

Responsibilities

  • Use our Terminals.io platform to help game developers and publishers execute Terminals.io Launch Packages, which are essentially mini PR campaigns with press release distribution, review key distribution, and reporting.
  • Manage our media- and influencer-verification process, checking social media connections, conducting research, and communicating with contacts to ensure they are who they say they are.
  • Diplomatically communicate with/deal with user reports, issues, and complaints.
  • Act as liaison between the public and Terminals’ development and business teams.
  • Conduct proactive outreach to potential developer/publisher clients to encourage them to list their games on Terminals.
  • Participate in product discussions, provide feedback on Terminals features, recommend improvements, etc. 
  • Track and assess Terminals user data, Google Analytics, etc. to help management and the rest of Evolve better understand Terminals performance and other trends.
  • Uphold Evolve’s key principles of kindness, inclusiveness, compassion, accountability, and excellence.

Qualifications

Nobody’s perfect, but the ideal candidate has some combination of the following:

  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal. You’re able to effectively communicate with executives and with the random gamer on Twitter, maintaining a professional demeanor even under duress.
  • Passion for games, particularly indie titles.
  • Professional experience in a public relations, marketing, or customer service role.
  • Strong knowledge of video game media outlets, Twitch/Mixer streams, and YouTube content creators
  • High familiarity with social networks like Facebook and Twitter
  • Strong knowledge of Microsoft or Google suites, specifically Word/Docs and Excel/Sheets
  • Fundamental understanding of video game PR, media, and influencer landscape is certainly helpful.
  • Highly self-motivated, you’re a critical thinker with strong problem-solving skills.

    Tips For Applying

    1. Read the job description fully, and ensure you’re qualified. Sure, it’s nice to shoot for the stars, but if you have none of the qualifications, you may want to hold off on applying.
    2. We value creativity, so don’t feel like you need to come across as a corporate robot when applying.
    3. Make sure you’ve actually submitted the things that are required to apply!
    4. Sharing links to your relevant social media accounts is really helpful; saves us having to dig for them!
    5. We focus our hiring on Canadian residents, but if you’re exceptionally qualified, we’re happy to consider non-Canadian applicants on a contract basis. Just know that you wouldn’t be eligible for the same health/dental benefits as our staff in Canada. Taxes and logistics and all.
