Marketing Manager

| Santa Monica

Seriously is building entertainment brands on mobile. With offices in Santa Monica, California, and Helsinki, Finland, the company’s first property, Best Fiends, was first introduced as a mobile game and is now directly connected to an audience of 2M+ people on a daily basis. Recently purchased by mobile game industry giant Playtika, Seriously plans to grow Best Fiends into a wider entertainment business, with the launch of new game titles, the production of additional feature-film quality animations, and the development of cutting-edge creative advertising campaigns in 2020 and beyond.  

Seriously plans to not only build out its Best Fiends franchise but also to start developing a second intellectual property, as the company challenges the way entertainment brands are both built and operated.
