Job opening: Community Manager position at Nexus Mods

  • Comment
Nexus Mods is looking to bolster our ranks once again by recruiting an experienced Community Manager to work with our existing team to help us better serve our community.

This position is based in our offices in Exeter in the UK and you will need a right to work in the UK before you apply.

The Role
As a Community Manager, it is your responsibility to interact with and look after the Nexus Mods community and understand the needs and wants of the various smaller communities within. You will be the public face of Nexus Mods and the go-to person for any questions users have specifically about the community including our rules and regulations and how we enforce them.

Your position will have both an internal and external focus. On the one hand, helping to manage and look after the community we already have while on the other helping to expand the Nexus Mods community further, inviting new mod authors to join us and expanding our reach into new games.

As part of this role you will help to manage and coordinate our moderation team, ensuring they continue to do a good job, providing them support when needed and helping to find and recruit new members to the team as and when necessary.

You will need to have your finger on the pulse of the Nexus modding community, the general gaming modding community and the wider gaming industry so you can fully represent us in all those spheres. It'll be your job to ensure the Nexus Mods community remains strong and vibrant while continuing to grow.

This is not a junior or entry-level role and applicants must have prior Community Management experience. Please provide a cover letter with your application that details your previous work in such positions when applying. Please do not apply if you have not previously worked in such a position before.
