Community Manager, World of Tanks

Job Overview

As a Community Manager for World of Tanks you are responsible for communicating key messaging to players in an approachable yet professional manner, while simultaneously collecting feedback from players to share with the team. Wherever players are, that’s where you need to be. That includes official channels like Discord and our forum, and unofficial channels like Reddit. While this role acts as a representative of the game to our player base, you’ll also need to see things from a player perspective: Understanding what they want, what their concerns are, and how to best communicate key talking points with them.

Being proactive is key. Not only do you need to present the player perspective to the rest of your peers in the Regional Publishing Group, but you must also anticipate player response and coordinate with other members of the Player Engagement team to best communicate those ideas. In short, you facilitate two-way communication between our internal teams and our players.

Behind the scenes as a Community Manager you take ownership of community initiatives and drive the entire process from planning to execution. You are expected to collect and report on player sentiment and stay up to date on changes to the game and developments within the overall video-game industry. You are also expected to collaborate with coworkers in different teams and provide a player-facing perspective to projects outside of the typical scope of community.

As a Community Manager you’ll be expected to cultivate experience in your specialization and communicate regularly with other teams in the Regional Publishing Group. Additionally, you are also responsible for understanding what the daily, weekly, and quarterly priorities are for your team and creating initiatives in step with the rest of the Product Team.
