At Hinterland, we strive to create thoughtful and meaningful experiences. Not just in our games but also in how we produce and share all of our content. Whether it’s for the announcement of an upcoming game update, a short video promoting the latest merch collaboration in our store, or our latest story trailer, we want our audience to feel like they are experiencing a unique Hinterland moment with us.

You need to be highly proficient in the latest editing and capturing software, have experience capturing and creating engaging trailers, product videos, and interviews, meaningful announcements and experiences that reflect the Hinterland brand.
