Community Manager

Funovus is a game startup based in the United States with team members around the globe. Together we've embraced a geo-diverse team and culture. We are looking for people who are fierce, capable, and have a strong desire to make fun and memorable games. Our games have generated over 10 million installs across the globe.


We are looking for a Community and Influencer Manager to join our startup and lead the community-building efforts for our innovative new game. This will be the only internal community or marketing position we hire before our early-access launch. A successful candidate has a passion for communicating with players, is a scrappy social media manager, and is excited to flex into broader marketing work. They will also have an in-depth understanding of cooperative gaming communities and ideally passionate about roguelike genre and meme culture.

The purpose of the role is to generate excitement for our new game title and build a passionate community of players and content creators. You will be responsible for leveraging new and existing relationships with content creators to drive organic content creation and earned media. You will be responsible for managing our social media channels and creating content to drive engagement, increase followers, and build brand awareness. Additionally, you will be responsible for community management, including engaging directly with players, moderating communication through email, Discord, and more, and addressing any issues or concerns that arise.


  • A natural communicator and a creative thinker with excellent social media skills, who can come up with new and innovative ways to engage with our community.
  • Proficient at working in a fully remote team environment. We balance synchronous and asynchronous communication across multiple time zones to get things done.
  • Proactive at identifying areas of concern and independently acting on it. We're a small team and the impact of each person is huge!
  • Able to drive forward on your role, but happy to pitch in wherever needed - we’re a startup and need folks to be flexible to the needs of a small, scrappy team
  • Considerate with feedback in both directions. We work to always receive feedback gracefully, deliver feedback constructively, and have discussions and disagreements respectfully.
  • Team-minded, a cross-discipline thinker that is mindful of the downstream impact of their work.
