Jobs at Evolve

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.

Social media & Community Specialist

Are you a meme master? A grassroots goliath? A community conqueror? Evolve is looking for a social media and community specialist with experience in video games to join our growing Community team. You’ll work with our PR, video, and research teams to help our roster of indie and AAA game clients plan and execute industry-leading, community-focused campaigns. This is a remote, work-from-home position in Canada.

Responsibilities & Expectations

In this role, your day-to-day work will vary depending on the game, client, and budget. Much of the job, however, involves:

  • Social media management: plan, execute, and report on social media activities. You’ll be producing assets, writing and editing copy, and developing reports and analytics.
  • Community-focused campaigns: conceptualize, plan, and execute creative campaigns to build and maintain communities around our clients’ brands.
  • Audits: assess the owned channels of our clients, understand their overall awareness and impact in the community, and develop recommendations of how to improve upon their existing presence.
  • Coaching: work with clients to identify their goals and priorities, so as to help implement best practices in-house.
  • Events (online & in real life): from booth staffing to online player events, plan and manage event presence from the community side.

Experience & Skills

Nobody’s perfect, but the ideal candidate has many of the following traits and skills:

  • 2+ years of experience managing social media and/or community campaigns for video games, whether in-house at a developer or publisher or in an agency capacity. Sorry, you have to have experience running campaigns for games; we need someone who can jump right in and lead a project.
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal. You will be expected to work with a remote team alongside clients located around the globe, take client calls, provide updates, and more.
  • Solid English writing abilities. You will be expected to write and edit copy for client community accounts, as well as the Evolve and Terminals channels at a professional level.
  • Top-notch collaboration and client relations. This position involves working alongside our PR, Insights, and Originals teams, as well as a wide range of clients. Teamwork!
  • Deep interest in video games and the games industry. This position involves speaking independently and directly with players via client accounts, and industry professionals via Evolve accounts. You know games inside and out.
  • Analytical and flexible. You are more than a ‘doer’ but also will question why a strategy is working or not working and act quickly to adjust accordingly. You can move from a tiny indie client to a AAA juggernaut without losing stride.
  • Exceptional organization and project management. This job requires keeping track of lots of different things—big and small. It’s literally impossible to keep it all in your head, so you need to be good at task management and organization.

Tools

Ideally you are experienced with the following tools:

  • Google Workspace (Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Gmail, etc.)
  • Slack, Discord, Teams, Skype, etc.
  • Facebook, Twitter, Discord, Instagram, and their respective media and analytics backends
  • Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Premiere)

Nice to Have

While we need someone who embodies the traits and skills above, it’s always nice to have a few tricks up your sleeve. Some areas of expertise we’d love to see among applicants include:

  • Graphic design and/or video mania: You can make things look pretty, whether we’re talking about still images and memes or videos and gifs.
  • Spreadsheet wizardry: You’re an Excel/Sheets magician, able to work your way through complex formulae, pivot tables, etc. 
  • Experience with social listening tools, like Meltwater, Sprout, etc.

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.
