Idea

Launched from Newcastle upon Tyne, England in May 2017, Hitmarker is a niche jobs website for esports.

Companies sign up to our platform to post esports jobs and candidates sign up to apply for them. To date, over 425,000 people have used Hitmarker more than 1.2 million times to advertise or search for jobs and we have in excess of 32,000 registered users, including 2,200+ hiring companies.

We aimed to become the first global hub of esports jobs by aggregating all of them in a single location. Before our platform existed, people who were looking for jobs or staff were often required to create accounts on multiple websites to manage their search or hiring process.

The only award-winning jobs platform in esports, we were recently named "Service Provider of the Year" at the 2019 UK Esports Awards and are "Supporting Agency of the Year" finalists at the upcoming global Esports Awards 2019.
