Kwalee on the hunt for brand evangelist via jobs board
Fresh after entertaining at the Best of British game hack, UK developer Kwalee has taken to the site's jobs board to hunt for a new brand evangelist.

The successful applicant will be part of what Kwalee claims is a dynamic marketing and communications team, interacting with both the specialist and mainstream press on a global basis.

Communication is key

"Kwalee have a pipeline of exciting and innovative games created by a world class development team," details the firm.

"Your job will to be to maximise the commercial success of these games by ensuring that they get the maximum amount of media coverage.

"You will also promote Kwalee, the company and the amazing individuals who work here."

Candidates need to boast at least two years of experience in a relevant role, along with degree level qualifications and – naturally – a healthy interest in games, amongst other things.

Another Darling

The news comes as Kwalee announces the appointment of another member of the Darling family.

Following chairman Jim Darling and Codemasters co-founder and Kwalee CEO David Darling, Jessie Darling – David's daughter – has joined the developer as a games tester, working alongside her uncle John Darling.

"I have learnt so much working here," said Jessie Darling.

"Even though my family has worked in the games industry for years, I have never known much about making games. It’s fascinating seeing pages of code and the artwork developed from start to finish."

Jessie has been involved in testing Kwalee's next game – the interestingly titled Pussy Flip – which will launch on the App Store next week.

More details on the job posting can be found on the jobs board, with other positions at Spil Games, Magmic and Gameloft, amongst others, also available.
