AlternativaPlatform’s Vilnius office is looking for Chief Marketing Officer to manage the growth of Tanki Online
AlternativaPlatform is an independent privately-owned games development studio founded in 2006. At the moment, the company has a team of 100 spread across four offices in Perm (development), Valletta (HQ), Vilnius (publishing, EMEA) and Shanghai (publishing, Asia). Since 2009, the company develops and publishes its core product Tanki Online, a free-to-play MMO operated in over 50 countries with millions of users internationally.
For a long time, AlternativaPlatform was mostly a technology-driven company. However, recently we started to focus more and more on a balance between business development and software development, gearing the company towards a service model. As a part of this evolution, we are currently in the process of setting up both marketing and business processes.
In late 2015, we plan to launch the new version of our core product Tanki Online, featuring improved visuals and cross-platform multiplayer between desktop and mobile devices. This is a whole new challenge that requires close cooperation across the whole studio, with business, marketing and production working with each other at every step.
As a part of our expansion, we are presently seeking Chief Marketing Officer to join our recently opened Vilnius office to oversee the new marketing team and to ensure our continued expansion as well as engagement of the existing audience.
Reporting: you will report directly to the company’s CEO Alex Karpovich (operations), as well as to the Board of Directors of the studio (strategic planning).
The team: you will be responsible for setting up the new marketing pipeline as required by the main goal of your position, including the set-up of an in-house team (in Vilnius) as well as managing existing and new marketing partners and contractors (internationally).
Coordination: you will liaise with the game’s Producer as well as with the Head of Business Development in the role of client or service provider, depending on the specific issues. As far as the financial planning is concerned, you will report and coordinate with the company’s CFO on approval of budgets and overall company’s KPIs. The main cross-team collaboration will be focused on improving the game’s monetization through increased audience involvement and improved game experience as the result of a joint effort of the heads of product development, business development and marketing units.
Compensation package: TBD on the basis of the final job interview (on par with comparable positions at the leading European studios). The company offers a combination of cash and performance-based bonus incentives, as well as additional medical/social packages. For the successful candidate, the company also provides (where applicable) full coverage of the relocation to Vilnius (including the candidate’s immediate family).
Our requirements: the successful candidate will have substantial experience managing people and directing processes, will be multilingual (fluent English is a must, working German and Spanish are a plus) and will possess an international worldview, developing strategy and supervising operations on the global market. Experience with videogames, whether as a passion or as a profession, is a must, more specifically - experience with community-focused MMO products.
We are open to both games industry veterans willing to take up this job as their new challenge, and to candidates with significant marketing experience in consumer-oriented industries willing to consider this position as their chance to join the international videogames industry. To fit our team, you don’t need to have 10 years of experience of running an MMO to apply; however you need to have the passion for the videogames industry and the mindset where player experience is the king!
Application process: to apply, please contact us at this email address; at the next step, you will receive a test task, followed by a Skype interview and then (if successful) by an on-site interview at our Vilnius studio.
