Description

Job Description Overview:

 

Are you passionate about PC gaming? Do you have meticulous attention to detail and industry experience honing copy and messaging across a variety of materials? We’re looking for a multitalented managing editor to maintain a high standard of quality and effectiveness for a wide range of marketing assets.

 

As part of the global gaming team, the successful applicant will help create impactful marketing materials for gaming laptops and desktops from ASUS and ROG. They will collaborate with content creators, marketers, and technical teams to ensure consistency with internal guidelines and external requirements, and will work closely with writers to craft compelling copy and engaging stories that connect features and specifications to better gaming and user experiences.

 

Applicants should be capable of closely following direction and ensuring that core messaging is implemented in everything from taglines and short snippets to video scripts and long-form articles. They should also be able to create well-crafted concepts and copy of their own. A deep understanding of relevant PC technology is definitely an asset but not required. However, you do need enough familiarity with the subject to help translate technical knowledge from internal experts into clear, concise copy that connects with technical and mainstream audiences.

 

While this position is primarily focused on feedback and editing during the creation process, analytics are a key component of evaluating the effectiveness of those materials. The successful applicant will monitor traffic and user behavior to quantify the performance of different assets. They will also research new approaches and perform experiments to test their impact.
