About the Employer

PlayStation isn’t just the Best Place to Play —it’s also the Best Place to Work. We’ve thrilled gamers since 1994, when we launched the original PlayStation. Today, we’re recognized as a global leader in interactive and digital entertainment. The PlayStation brand falls under Sony Interactive Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation.

An exciting opportunity to join a new distributed team that runs content and operations for PlayStation.com - marketing some of the world’s most popular products, services and experiences. We’re looking for a passionate gamer, brand-fanatic and/or a digitally savvy publishing specialist – creative, strategic and highly organized.

As a Web Producer you’ll contribute to the global editorial calendar and be responsible for the day-to-day content planning, curation, creation, distribution optimization and amplification on PlayStation.com and associated outlets.

You’re an experienced content producer with an excellent understanding of how to build innovative and engaging assets - from editorial copy to rich media, short and long form. You will work alongside a team and multiple partners to ensure that content featured on the site is up to date, relevant, and on-brand. You’ll be supporting the global program, editorial process and content strategy that fuels SIE’s flagship website (PlayStation.com), in turn driving player engagement and business objectives.
