Social Media Marketing Manager

New Westminster, BC, Canada

About Offworld Industries:

Offworld Industries Ltd. (OWI) is the independent studio behind the successful military first-person shooter game, “Squad”. OWI was formed in 2014 by more than 15 developers who had worked together on the well known Project Reality mod for Battlefield 2. The founding purpose of the team was to bring a standalone successor of this acclaimed mod to market and build a game development studio and a livelihood from that foundation.

Fast forward to 2023, OWI has nearly 120 employees and is rapidly growing. We have been expanding the studio into serving as a publisher supporting mods and have just announced our upcoming title “Starship Troopers: Extermination”, a 12-player PvE first-person shooter based on the 1997 cult-classic film.
