Meet the team

Sally

Community Manager

Hi! I’m Sally and I’m a Community Manager here at Frontier.

As part of the Community Team I help to tap into the best interests of our player base, which in turn holds an element of support for our incredible development teams with the future planning of our fun and exciting titles. As a team we also take pride in building personable relationships with our players too, by means of live streams and social media engagement. A hub of hype and readiness!

Working at Frontier has been a tailored wealth of experience for me over my many, varied years in industry; entering firstly into Production, adopted then by Publishing as Product Manager, before honing skills from both disciplines into my current role.

My friends and colleagues really do recognise my strengths, no matter where they lie and have a lot of trust in my passion, how I apply myself, allowing me to support teams across the board in the development of our incredible titles. It’s only ever more and more rewarding.

Rachel

Product Manager

Hi! I'm Rachel, one of the Product Managers at Frontier Developments.

Each Product Manager takes care of a specific game or brand from a marketing perspective. The game I take care of is Planet Zoo!

Being a Product Manager encompasses many things, including defining a marketing strategy and plan, preparing the briefs for the main marketing assets (including the trailers and key-art), managing the marketing partnerships, and of course overseeing the rolling out of the campaign and making sure everything goes according to plan.

I have only been working at Frontier for eight months, but it has already been a fantastic experience! I had always wanted to work for a dev studio and I finally am in this position now. Working with the dev team allowed me to understand more about the "behind the scenes" of how a game is built, connect with more people and learn from their knowledge and experience. It also allows for more creativity and fun as we can discuss directly for some ideas for the game and also work together on all the creative and visual parts of a marketing campaign
