Internship Journalism Gaming and Esports (m/w/d)

Who are we and what are we looking for?

Esports Media Group is a gaming firm… which you might have guessed from the name. We’re covering everything from gaming, to esports and even pop culture in the form of articles and videos. We’re also quite active on social media, though our current head of socials is a millenial, so that might not be as funny as you’d think (if you’re Gen Z, please apply, thank you).

Through all of our brands and channels, we reach over 40 million gamers each month globally. That’s about as much as it takes BTS’ music video to reach in an hour… not bad, right?

We were founded in 2019 and have been one of the fastest growing news and entertainment platforms in gaming and esports. EarlyGame, ValorFeed and RiftFeed have been doing fantastic since their individual go-lives, so we’ve been lucky enough to work with many renowned partners in the industry.

Now, you might think: okay, but… you sound like every other gaming start up in the industry. What’s so special about you? Well, for starters, we actually know our target audience and cater to it. Forget about conventional news coverage that has to be boring, we’re delivering our content to our users as if they’re our friends. Because in a way, they are. We’re one big community that just loves gaming and esports. That’s probably one of the biggest reasons why we grew as fast as we did. We’re different (read that in Lana del Ray cursive).

Next to this we are organizing (big) influencer and community tournaments, host awards and regularly advance our products.

Maybe you’re cringing and if you are, that might just be perfect, because right now, we’re looking for a Social Media & Marketing Lead (f/m/d) who is way funnier than me and loves gaming and esports.

What we need from you:

  • You are in your studies in the fields of communication, media, marketing, journalism or similar
  • Absolute passion for Gaming and / or Esports
  • Ideally based in Munich, but working remotely from home is also possible
  • Strong English language (preferably mother tongue), German is a plus
  • Passion to develop and shape a new brand and grow a community

What we offer:

  • The opportunity to actively shape a start-up with flat hierarchies and build up your own team
  • To actively define and shape the further development of existing channels several million monthly readers
  • Great creative freedom to develop new formats on a wide variety of platforms, to grow personally and to constantly develop
  • A beautiful, centrally located office in the heart of Munich with perfect connections to public transport
  • Many employer benefits (home office, fruits, drinks, (gaming) parties, etc.)
