  • Stay on top of the latest developments in the live game and general player sentiment, and when needed, weigh in on internal discussions from a player-first perspective
  • Take ownership of and act as a project manager for Player Ops tasks — proactively arrange discussions, keep track of deadlines, prepare for contingencies, etc.
  • Handle communications with external partners and community ambassadors as needed
  • Continuously prioritize Player Ops tasks in a dynamic live environment according to company targets 
  • Complement and support our marketing campaigns with tailored community content
