Description

A little about us

We are Fnatic - born in 2004 into the new world of esports. Since then, our pro-gamers have won thousands of tournaments across more than 20 games, the most of any organisation. Through these achievements, we’ve created a community of over a million fans, with 10s of millions watching our pro-gamers compete globally each month.


Our mission is to lead this new world sport into every household through content, products and experiences, becoming the first globally recognised lifestyle brand emerging from esports. We need you to help us achieve this.

What’s the role?

Fnatic is a hugely successful brand which is known worldwide, and this role is all about capitalising on the commercial opportunities that we attract, across sponsorship and marketing campaigns.
