Plarium is looking for an outstanding Games Writer to help us craft the voice, UI text, and content of our legacy and in-development free-to-play titles.

As a strong candidate for this position, you have worked in a game studio and helped ship at least one successful title. You have an encyclopedic knowledge of free-to-play games. From casual to mid-core, you have a mental pool of great examples to draw from, and are familiar with a broad set of common game mechanics and features.

You have excellent lateral-thinking skills, can dig into stat calculations, and thrive in the space where game mechanics and writing intersect. You have spent time honing your professional writing skills, and can take a task from concept documentation to live update, while problem-solving, self-proofing, and editing your work independently.

If you have a sense of adventure, and the above describes your skillset - we want to talk to you.

  • Other duties may include, but are not limited to, creating character backstories, brainstorming creative references, drafting wiki articles, codifying style, tone, etc.

What we expect

  • Strong creative writing skills, excellent grammar and spelling mandatory.
  • Experience in game writing or English localization QA on at least one shipped game.
  • Passion for video gaming and the video game industry necessary.
  • Native English speaker.
  • Experience working in cross-cultural and cross-studio environments.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Ability to multitask in a multicultural, fast-paced, deadline-driven environment.
  • Strong logical and lateral thinking skills, and a problem-solving mindset.
  • Strong time-management skills and the ability to take initiative.
  • Background in gaming, fantasy, sci-fi, comic book, and other game-relevant creative material.

Desired

  • Bachelor's Degree or equivalent professional experience in Journalism, Communication, English Literature, Creative Writing, Technical Writing, or related field.
  • Copywriting/copy editing experience highly desirable.
  • Experience writing for social and new media.
  • Experience with video script-writing
