Carry1st is the leading publisher of mobile games in Africa. We work with studios across the globe to level up their games and scale in dynamic, frontier markets. In addition, Carry1st has built a proprietary payments engine, Pay1st, and ecommerce platform, the Carry1st Shop, which allows customers to pay for digital content leveraging local payment methods.

  • Build relationships with gamer communities, influencers, startups, and more, to ensure Carry1st is top of mind and included in relevant conversations.
  • Collaborate closely with Marketing, Social Media, Influencer, and Creative teams to build cohesive community engagement strategies across all areas of the business
  • Work with Games and Platform leadership to support organizational goals through community engagement (i.e. revenue growth in the shop, user acquisition in games, etc.)
  • Act as a visible spokesperson and representative of Carry1st in the gaming community
  • Promote insights from community interactions and surface critical issues to cross-functional teams
  • Develop goals for campaigns, monitor to understand effectiveness of strategy, and make recommendations for continuous improvement
  • Monitor industry trends across gaming to develop a vision for future opportunities to ensure Carry1st’s relevance/prominence in gaming culture

Carry1st is a fast-growing, dynamic place to work. In December 2021, we closed on a large fundraise led by Andreessen Horowitz – with participation from other awesome investors like Google, Riot Games, Konvoy Ventures, Avenir, and Nas!

At Carry1st, you will…

  • Build awesome, industry-changing products, every day
  • Grow with a VC-backed startup at the intersection of gaming, fintech, and web3
