Your Impact

In this role, you’ll take the lead to define Inworld’s product marketing strategy from start to finish. Partnering with product, engineering, and PR, you will define narratives and go-to-market strategies that resonate with our core audience of video game decision-makers.

The role demands more than just knowledge of game development – you need to be technically fluent in generative AI concepts and have a nuanced understanding of its implications, including addressing the concerns people may have about the ethical, societal, and privacy aspects of AI implementation. We’re looking for someone strategic, who can also roll up their sleeves to execute campaigns end-to-end.



Inworld is breaking new ground in a product category without a playbook. It’s an environment where ambiguity is the norm, and we value individuals who thrive in uncertainty. You’ll be in a constant cycle of experimentation, learning, and growth.

This role offers the impact, ownership, and visibility to do your career’s best work. We’re open to candidates of all seniority levels, so don’t hesitate to apply, even if your experience might not tick all the boxes. Just be prepared to show us you can do the job by understanding our product, competitors, and industry.
