!!! Dream Job Alert !!!
Innovative gaming studio looking for a CMO with a passion for digital marketing and communication, and experience in building teams and scaling up, fast.
We are developing Ember Sword, a groundbreaking platform-agnostic and Free-to-Play MMORPG Game set in a player-driven fantasy universe, with digital collectible cosmetics and a blockchain-enhanced economy.
It’s a universe where the players control the world through true land ownership. A game in which all valuable cosmetic items are tokenized as scarce non-fungible crypto-collectibles, which are acquired by players through gameplay objectives, instead of sold through loot boxes. With a fan community spanning more than a hundred thousand people, a strong advisory board, a $2M investment round this year, and a very successful first land sale campaign ($1.5M) that sold out in just a few hours, and now a Community Land Sale that has sparked far over $203M pledged, Ember Sword is aiming high and growing fast.
But Ember Sword is not just a game, it's a community, an economy, and a world that evolves and transforms alongside its players. That's why we're looking for someone who is just as good a communicator, as they are a marketing professional. Someone to help us relate to and inspire the thousands of creative voices that make up the Ember Sword community.

You are an inspiring leader and a good communicator.
You can successfully lead and develop high-performing international teams with diverse experiences, cultures, and locations.
You are willing to relocate to Denmark (Aarhus or Copenhagen) or able to convince us that you won't have to.

Although it might sound a little crazy ambitious, Ember Sword developed into a game-changer: a free to play, modern, and truly player-driven MMORPG game with a real economy powered by the Ethereum Blockchain, and in just 2 years, Bright Star became one of the most promising gaming studios in the world. Today we are a rapidly growing team. Spread across continents, yet united in our mission to build the ultimate MMORPG experience, gaming is the heart and soul of Bright Star Studios. The BSS team is determined, talented, hailing from diverse backgrounds and locations.
