We are hiring!
We’re looking for an experienced native English PR executive at ICO Partners with equal amounts of writing skill, creative flair and love of video games.

Our PR work deals with online games – current projects include Crowfall and Darksburg while in the past we have worked together with Hi-Rez Studios and Riot Games, for instance – as well as indie titles such as Armello, Cultist Simulator, Northgard and older projects including Blackwood Crossing, the Endless games franchise.
If this sounds like you, and you’re interested in joining a small, fun-loving (but hard-working) team, please send your CV to email@example.com and/or drop us a line for more info.
