About you


You’re a connector

We’re looking for natural storytellers who have a history of working with media. You’ll catch our attention if you have experience working within esports - but being a passionate gamer with experience in traditional sports is also a big plus.

This isn’t your first rodeo

This is a senior role that requires around 5-7 years of PR or media experience, and you have the journalist connections and strategic know-how to prove it. You’ve worked consistently with media during your career and are equally experienced with developing a 12-month communications plan and presenting it to clients.

You want to go beyond the traditional media relations churn

Esports isn’t the place for ‘throw as much spaghetti at the wall as you can’ pitching. We’re looking for pros who will build a relationship with media and understand when they’re the best channel to achieve the goal - not just seek out column inches at any cost. You understand that great comms make the world go round. We’re looking for a senior pro who’s as comfortable media training athletes and spokespeople as they are brainstorming storylines and big picture strategies.

You have a passion for or are willing to become interested in esports

Whether you’re a communications pro looking for a switch, or an esports veteran with passion for PR and storytelling, we’d be excited to talk to you. In turn, you must be excited to get your hands dirty, sit front row at badass esports events, and immerse yourself in our world completely.



You are a team player who knows how to work independently

As a scale-up, we’re all hands on deck with some of our high-profile projects and want you to be an active, contributing team member to everything that fits your expertise and skillset. We work from three different countries and timezones and are a team that’s largely independent but comes together when the going gets tough. You’re the kind of person who doesn’t need to be told what to do but keeps their own deadlines and priorities straight.

Our offer

  • Competitive salary, fitting your experience and skillset with bi-annual checks and reviews

  • Unlimited PTO

  • Potential for travel to international esports events 

  • Annual personal development budget

  • The right hardware that works the way you prefer

  • Full healthcare specific to your location

PLEASE NOTE: We will only process applications that are sent to jobs@thestorymob.com with resume and cover letter attached.

If you want to apply for any of the positions, please send a copy of your CV, links to relevant work and a cover letter to jobs@thestorymob.com.
