Jackbox Games is looking for a Content Marketing Intern to join our team temporarily in Chicago! (Remote candidates may be considered as our office is currently working in a hybrid mode). This paid internship will consist of roughly 20 hours of work per week from roughly mid July through October 31st, 2022.

Who are We?

Jackbox is a small game studio (~70 people) best known for our Jackbox Party Pack franchise: a set of five social party games released every fall. Since 2014, our games--like Quiplash, Drawful, and Trivia Murder Party-- have been featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, by Polygon, and in living rooms and finished basements across the world.

In 2020, we had over 200 million users. And we have hard evidence that one of those users was Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron.

You can learn everything you ever wanted to know about how our games work (spoiler: your phone is the controller!) and who we are and what we make at jackboxgames.com.

What’s the Job?

We have a small but mighty marketing team that could use some support launching The Jackbox Party Pack 9. The Content Marketing Intern will report directly to the Marketing Editorial Lead and be responsible for generating engaging content that represents the brand and helps promote our games.

This internship is intended to allow you to explore your creative marketing interests while sharpening your professional skills to set you up for a successful creative career.

Responsibilities:

  • Help draft copy and source relevant images for social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
  • Collaborate with Marketing Editorial Lead on short video ideas for social media channels (particular emphasis on TikTok and Instagram reels)
  • Help edit videos for social channels
  • Track analytics on social posts on a weekly basis, compiling a short report on best and worst-performing posts. Critically analyze these posts with the team and use that knowledge to inform future post ideas.
  • Identify opportunities for blog content using marketing analytics tools.
  • Create detailed descriptions for graphics/illustrations needed from artists for upcoming sales and events.
  • Attend meetings with our PR team and help Marketing Editorial Lead deliver any assets they need for press opportunities.
  • Write copy for email newsletters and blogs as assigned.

Ideal Candidates Will Have...

  • Strong writing skills. Drafting copy will be a major responsibility. We are looking for someone with strong grammar and spelling abilities, along with a knack for writing in a humorous, light-hearted tone.
  • Passion for our games and for our fans.
  • Some video editing experience.
  • A sense of humor.
  • Experience identifying trends on social media and growing a follower base across multiple platforms.

But It's Great If You Also Have…

  • Prior experience with WordPress
  • Experience with Adobe products
  • Experience with Google Analytics or other marketing analytics tools
  • Experience with Sprout Social or another social scheduling tool
  • Experience with ActiveCampaign or another email marketing tool

We only hire kind, motivated and creative people. Jackbox Games is a group effort and you must work collaboratively. Everyone here shares a commitment to excellence and a desire to work in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere.

Jackbox Games is committed to providing employment opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, creed, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, ancestry, age, veteran status, or disability.

  • What if I’m too qualified and have extensive work experience?
    You should still apply. We are looking for the best candidates and if this description sounds like work you’d enjoy doing, we’d welcome your application.
