As a community manager, you’re the voice of the brand in the community, and the voice of our gamers on the team. Your responsibility is cultivating, growing and activating the community, increasing the size of our audience and the impact of our marketing. You’re an active participant in the discussion on forums and social media and function as one of our primary “faces” of the brand. You take part in live streams and other marketing activities, and you’re expected to cultivate a following of your own as a key representative of the brand.

The community manager is responsible for our media channels associated with the brand and is expected to set and execute on growth strategies for all of them.

About Coffee Stain North
We are still a small-ish studio, and we’d like to stay that way. The games we make are the games we want to play. We strongly believe in staying independent so that we can continue on our own path. We like to work in smaller, more focused teams where everyone matters. Micromanaging is not our style, so everyone needs to take responsibility for their own work.
Coffee Stain North is located in Stockholm, Sweden, one of the most gamer-centric cities in the country.
We believe diversity is a good thing and that creativity thrives when different backgrounds and perspectives are brought to the table. So if you’re any sort of minority in the game industry then we definitely encourage you to apply. Diversity is something we are constantly striving for.
Perks of being a Coffee Stainer
We offer competitive salaries with excellent benefits. We have a really nice insurance program which you will benefit from, payments to your pension fund as well as getting time off to work out.
