Editorial Assistant

DSS GAMES is a leading creator of irreverent, one-of-a-kind social games. With each game, we strive to “keep it weird” and make our games in the most environmentally sustainable way possible.

 

Our games are sold nationally through accounts such as Amazon, Target, Walmart, Barnes & Noble, Urban Outfitters, and more. All of our games are actually tabletop games (not video games or apps)! We are all about getting people off their phones and into the here and now.

 

Welcome to DSS GAMES!

 

As our Editorial Assistant, you will play a crucial role in the product development process. You will work closely with the design, production, and marketing teams to review, edit, and refine game materials, ensuring they are engaging, error-free, and align with our brand's voice and style.
