    ABOUT KILL SCREEN

    Kill Screen is a videogame arts and culture company that wants to inspire a life well-played.

    We've worked with brands and agencies on content strategy and development to help them unlock the power of play. Our past and present clients include GE, Intel, PBS, MoMA, Warby Parker and more. As a natively editorial company, we're big believers in how story can transform experiences.

    Based in Brooklyn, Kill Screen publishes a website and a magazine as well as organizes events such as the groundbreaking Arcade at the Museum of Modern Art and Kill Screen Festival, which Mashable called  “the TED of videogames.” The New Yorker called Kill Screen "the McSweeney's of interactive media" and TIME said the writing was so "polished that they might help convince doubters that games are worth taking seriously." 

    Kill Screen is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to building a safe, inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. Everyone is encouraged to apply, including women, LGBTQ people, people of color and people with disabilities.

    Hey! Kill Screen is looking for a Sales Analyst to join our team. You'll be working with our founder and CEO, Jamin Warren, to develop new business opportunities and help our clients leverage the power of play.

    So what are we looking for? We're looking for someone detail-oriented with a good nose for leads. You don't make mistakes and have a meticulous eye for perfection. You are interested in becoming a salesperson and see this as a way to look for new opportunities.

    It's worth noting, we're not "gamers" at Kill Screen, although we love games and play! So if you have a stereotype of who belongs at a game company or are worried that you don't play enough, don't worry! There's no Super Mario Kart test. We just want someone who sees the same potential and possibility for games as we do. We're trying to build a diverse, inclusive team!

    While one need not be currently living in LA to apply, ideally this job is located in our Los Angeles office.
