Epic is looking for an experienced communications professional to lead PR and global communications for Fall Guys, the Mediatonic Team, and other Epic first party products in Europe.

• Establish and maintain relationships with journalists and influencers, including consumer, entertainment, technology, policy and broadcast press on behalf of Mediatonic, Fall Guys and Epic Games.
• Collaborate with marketing, product, engineering and executive teams on game and studio announcements.
• Lead on corporate communications for Mediatonic and Fall Guys, partnering closely with legal, policy and corporate communications on our strategy for key issues including safety and privacy.
• Use blogs, speeches, social media, and other digital strategies to tell stories that are important to the company, our products, and our players.
• Manage external PR agencies all over the world.
• Work closely with the executive team to support high profile media engagements and events.
• You will be based in London with the Mediatonic and Epic Games teams while keeping regular communications with the global Epic Games communications team.

What we're looking for

• Someone who has led global PR strategies for products and has deep knowledge of the European markets.
• Someone keyed into the community of reporters and thought leaders and who enjoys developing new relationships.
• Someone who moves fast, is focused on delivering results, and has a track record of working well across a diverse group of internal and external partners.
• Someone who is user-focused, passionate, scrappy, solutions-focused, and innovative. These traits equal success at Epic and influence everything we do.
• People management and proven team building skills are a plus, with room to grow Epic's European Communications function over time.
• A proactive problem solver, with strong instincts for when to escalate issues.
• A team player who's collaborative, supportive, and celebrates others' wins.
