Supercell is one of the most successful games companies in the world. With only 190 employees in 5 offices, we believe that small, highly independent teams of “A” players can be more impactful than armies of “B” teams. Hence, we are looking for the best & brightest to contribute to our team. Small teams require that each individual be able to contribute at a high level, with a global and scalable focus.

Our goal is to have Supercell games become a “cultural phenomenon in Japan.”

We are currently looking for a Senior Brand Marketing Professional to build out and execute the overall marketing strategy. We pride ourselves on the level of thoughtfulness, quality and craftsmanship put into every aspect of our work. Be it the games themselves, or how we communicate them to the rest of the world – we enjoy doing the kind of work that is big, impactful and never been done before.

All of this is way easier said than done. It takes vision, commitment, and super talented (and slightly crazy) people who will pursue only the very best work possible. If that sounds like you (including the “slightly crazy” part), then we welcome you to apply.

About the Brand Team

The Brand Team plays a key role in how we bring our games to market, and how we inspire people to play our games for years on end. It’s no small task. This means producing creative that excites and connects people to our games, that makes players and non-players alike smile. This means setting the standard for how to create a meaningful brand around free-to-play games, pushing the envelope with creative and breaking the rules with media execution. We always need to find new ways to keep our games, and our players, as celebrated as they deserve to be.

The ideal Brand Marketing candidate has the rare ability to provide strategic leadership, drive consensus across different teams, and tap into killer creative instincts. You might be in Helsinki one week, Tokyo the next, and then in Los Angeles reviewing creative for an upcoming campaign. With all the challenges comes limitless creative empowerment. You will be responsible for making your vision a reality!

About Supercell

Supercell aims to create games that millions of people will play for years or decades to come. We believe the best people make the best games, and that’s who we’re looking for. If you love games and are passionate about playing and crafting them, and you’re looking for a job that provides you ownership and independence, you’re in the right place.

Supercell isn’t an entertainment company, it isn’t a start-up, and it isn’t just any game company. Our focus sets us apart. Focus means saying no a lot. To release four games, we have killed fourteen. We’ve shut down marketing campaigns because they weren’t perfect for our players, and we’ve scrapped a ton of game features that were simply too niche.

We also believe that focus means staying small. We hire only the most passionate doers and arm them with the trust and support to make the biggest impact possible. As part of a small, independent team at Supercell, you’ll be free to dream and succeed (and sometimes fail) big!
