The role

Our game Horse Reality is loved by many, which is why our community, as well as our moderating team, keep growing. We need an experienced community manager to manage this and engage with both our community and our team of 25 volunteers.

You are a creative jack of all trades who understands that our friendly community is the foundation of Horse Reality. If we want to create an impact, we need to maintain a good relationship with them. They’re eager to know all our ins and outs, so your job is to keep them up to date while maintaining a friendly atmosphere in the game.

The same goes for our dedicated moderating team! They are an amazing bunch of players who are so involved with our game, that they decided to volunteer and help us out with a bunch of tasks. They may have questions on how to handle a certain situation or bring something to your attention that they deem is urgent.

What your day could look like:

  • Human interaction on a daily basis — Be visibly online and active in-game and on Discord, representing our company. Both players and moderators won’t hesitate to reach out to you day and night.
  • Moderator management — Build a relationship with our team of 25 volunteers and moderators, which you will manage, recruit, onboard and support. Set up monthly brainstorming and team building events with our volunteer and moderating team and inform them on a weekly basis.
  • News updates — You set the tone in our bi-weekly news updates and make sure that all questions afterwards are answered in a timely manner.
  • Community involvement — You identify issues and improvements in our community and are able to come up with the right solution when a problem is found in a grey area. You are continuously improving rules and moderating procedures, creating easy to follow guides and documenting any FAQs.
  • Organize community events — Self-starting and taking the lead in organizing community events to engage with our players through all our channels.
  • Provide game support — Monitor and respond to incoming emails in our support mail.
  • Knowledge base documentation — You ensure community management guidelines and processes are documented along the way.

  • Strong communication skills — Strong public speaker, able to communicate effectively while still being compassionate.
  • Management skills — You have experience directly managing people and have the ability to coach, mentor and develop our moderating team, as well as interns.

  • Strong reading and writing in English — Speaking Dutch and/or German is a plus.

  • Self-starter — You embrace a challenge and take initiative. You can complete certain tasks without deliberation when that is required of you.
