United States, San Francisco
Full Time

See all positions »


We believe that Clash Royale has the opportunity take eSports to a place it hasn’t quite caught on… mobile platforms. Today’s eSports experience is built for console and PC games, but with the massive reach and ubiquity of mobile devices, we believe it can become much more accessible and mainstream than ever before. Mobile gaming can take eSports beyond the hardcore gaming niche and turn it into something that everyone does, everywhere.

We’re incredibly excited about this opportunity, and we’re looking for someone that can help us define what eSports means on mobile and what competition means to Clash Royale. We’ve only taken our first few steps into this world with events like Tokyo Clash, ClashCon 2015, and the Clash Royale Helsinki Tournament, and there’s a ton left to figure out. That’s where you come in!

  • Cultivate and develop an ecosystem including: mobile platforms, production companies, event organizers, communities, teams/organizations, and sponsors – as you see fit

Experience

  • 10+ Years of leadership in games/sports/entertainment/media industries

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!
