Sales & Marketing Director

Do you have Sales & Marketing skills and experience and a desire to work for a quickly growing company in the tabletop gaming industry? Good news: Greater Than Games is hiring a Sales & Marketing Director!

Job Summary: We are seeking a Sales & Marketing Director with the ability to develop and execute a creative and aggressive marketing strategy. An ideal candidate will possess broad experience in areas of strategic planning and market development, and the ability to calibrate strategy as needed to achieve results. We will begin the interview process in September, with the intent to complete the hiring process in October.

Founded in January 2011 by Christopher Badell, Adam Rebottaro, and Paul Bender, Greater Than Games, LLC designs and publishes tabletop gaming products. Our initial product, Sentinels of the Multiverse, has enjoyed critical and commercial success, and we are continuing to grow our business both with SotM expansions and with other designer tabletop games. In 2015, Greater Than Games merged with Dice Hate Me Games - founded in 2011 by Chris Kirkman - combining our powers to maximize the awesomeness of the games we publish.

Now, Greater Than Games publishes games under three distinct imprints. Sentinel Comics features our own super-powered heroes fighting crime and villainy across a whole line of games. Dice Hate Me Games are Euro-style games from great designers with a classic Americana feel. And Fabled Nexus is the home to the weird and wonderful - fantasy and sci-fi games. We at Greater Than Games are all about making the games that we have always wanted to play. Together, we work hard, play hard, and will continue producing high quality tabletop games for many years to come. We hope to find the perfect match to be a part of our team!

  • Developing and implementing strategic marketing plans and sales plans
  • Performing and evaluating market research and adjusting to meet changing market conditions
