Hello! Twofivesix is a strategic consultancy that helps brands engage in the world of gaming. We’re a group of diverse, smart, values-driven experts who enjoy working with ambitious and awe-inspiring clients while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

We’re looking for a Gaming Culture Researcher to produce an ongoing trends report for a client about the intersection of gaming and online video culture, particularly on digital platforms like YouTube.

We are excited to have someone join our team who is excited and passionate about gaming and video culture and helping our clients engage with the world of gaming.

  • You are naturally curious, always open to researching unfamiliar but fruitful subjects
  • You are a respectful coworker and a team player who thrives in collaborative settings

Requirements

  • Must be located in the U.S. and legally authorized to work in the U.S.
  • Must be available for around 2-4 hours a week, as well as occasional calls to discuss your findings internally
  • Prior experience with professional writing is a plus
  • Prior experience with Slack, Asana, and the Google Drive suite is a plus
