When you close your eyes, can you hear a thousand people typing, eagerly looking for answers? Lost in the depths of a dungeon, indignant with their overwhelming load and unable to get the multiplayer to work – they’re calling for help and we’re looking for a guide editor to lead the rescue team.

This is a full-time position, either locally in Bath (you will attend our beautifully newly renovated offices at least two days a week) or telecommuting from the UK with occasional business travel. You’ll manage the PCGamesN guide team, take care of the team of associate guide editors and guide writers, and you’ll be responsible for developing and executing our guide strategy, maintaining the health of our existing guide team, and writing, editing, and updating them.

You should have a solid understanding of SEO and keep an eye on the ever-changing search landscape, and you need to have a broad understanding of the biggest games of the moment and pay close attention to find the most promising clues from the community and gameplay.

We are looking for an experienced tour guide expert with strong organizational skills, keen eye for detail and love of research, as well as flexible and creative thinking, keen writing skills and a passion for a variety of games.

We encourage all eligible candidates to apply, although we are particularly eager to hear from writers from BIPOC, LGBTQ and other underrepresented backgrounds.
