About the role

Volley develops voice-controlled games and entertainment apps for Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Our voice apps are world-class and attract millions of users every month. We’re a 45-person team based in San Francisco.

 

We’ve created several of the top experiences for voice-controlled devices, including:

 

We believe voice control will be the main way people access entertainment in their bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and cars, and our goal is to build a destination for interactive audio entertainment, as Netflix did for television.

Whether it's new music playlists, trivia questions, or bedtime stories, great content is at the core of every Volley experience. We are hiring a Head of Content to manage content inventories, source new content, and be the gatekeeper of quality across our most popular titles.

What you'll do

  • Set up and manage pipelines for new and existing content across multiple products
  • Standardize CMS systems to easier manage content
  • Source, edit and schedule new content releases
  • Work closely with UX and Engineering to ensure timely release of content

Some things you may have done

  • Writing, editing, proofreading for blogs, trivia question writing or sourcing
  • Worked with CMS/other tools e.g. Retool, Airtable, Excel

At Volley, we recognize the importance of work-life balance. We are currently working remotely, but come January will be implementing a hybrid work-from-home and in-office schedule. We also offer 4 weeks of paid time off and strongly encourage its use.

 

Volley believes in an inclusive workplace and is committed to building a team from a variety of backgrounds. We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive the other benefits and privileges of employment.

 

We’re a small but quickly growing team that truly enjoys working together. We love coming together over Zoom happy hours, the funny and strange in Slack #random, and come January, occasional karaoke sessions in our brand new Hayes Valley office. If this sounds like fun (we promise it is), get in touch!

 

Underrepresented candidates, and candidates from nontraditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply!
