Job Description

We are Ninjas in Pyjamas, probably the world’s most legendary esports team.

Born in 2000 with Counter-Strike in our blood, we have pioneered the esports scene since its inception. We earned our stripes by competing at the very top level across almost a dozen game titles and we never lose — we only win or learn.

Our vision is to bring gaming culture to a world without boundaries.

What You’ll Do

  • Prospect, contact and negotiate with new potential partners for all NIP properties
  • Maintain strong professional relationships with existing partners to make sure client satisfaction is high and to identify upsell opportunities
  • Build strong C-level relationships with top-tier global brands to foster trust and to generate leads
  • Maintain a collaborative and creative approach with internal teams
  • Develop compelling pitches and presentations that excite and educate brands
  • Contribute to business development by monitoring relevant media and analysing market trends

What it means to be a Ninja

Ninjas fight as one — no matter where you come from, who you are and what you look like you are welcome to join our dojo.

Our mission is to keep pioneering the esports industry and bringing it to an ever-broadening audience, and in order to innovate we need people from all walks of life. Yes, even if you’re more into horticulture than gaming in your free time.

The essence of being a Ninja is to expect the unexpected. In game and in the office we bring the energy and vision to be ready for anything at any given moment. That’s why your personal experience, your unique background and your perspectives will help us adapt and bring the Unexpected.
