Head of Operations

We are a young and ambitious startup with great ambitions. We want your help to grow our team and scale our operations as we take on the challenge of democratizing gaming.

We are looking for somebody with the energy and discipline necessary to scale the company as we work towards our Series A and beyond. This is a very expansive role, with a lot of responsibility, and requires close coordination with C-level management.

In the beginning, this role will cover many different areas, but as the company grows in headcount (20, 50, …) and scale it will become necessary to split the role among more people. Helping us decide when to do that, what kind of profile to hire, and overseeing the transition is perhaps one of the most important responsibilities of this role.

In general, we want your help to define, set up, and oversee all kinds of processes within the company. Especially, when establishing or growing new departments. You will also help us in defining recruiting profiles and with the recruitment process itself. Besides that, your tasks and responsibilities will also include the following areas:

Fundraising

As we move towards our Series A, you will need to be closely involved in the fundraising process, helping us plan and organize the process and preparing material for potential investors (financials, user-growth, etc.)

Finances

This is one of the most important areas you'll deal with as we currently lack a dedicated CFO. The main challenges and responsibilities are:

  • Define and roll-out processes to handle our back-office work: revenue, payouts to game developers, refunds, chargebacks, multiple currencies, etc.
  • Research and assess new payment systems, and overview any eventual integration into our system.
  • Assist in the elaboration of the budget, keep it up to date, make sure that it is reviewed periodically, and produce monthly updates for the investors.
  • Research and deploy processes minimize FX fees when handling multiple currencies.
  • Take full ownership of all the accounting processes. Coordinate with the bookkeepers to keep the books in order, prepare the yearly accounts for the auditor and the yearly report, handle invoice payments, improve our chart of accounts to better reflect the value created.

Legal

Your role in this area will be to make sure that all legal matters in the company are handled appropriately, based on the standards set by the CEO.

  • Review legal documents, potentially coordinating with the company's legal counsel when necessary, and provide a summary of relevant points, liabilities, etc.
  • Help in the drafting of legal documents in coordination with the legal counsel.
  • Research and warn about potential liabilities and compliance issues, making use of the company's legal counsel when appropriate.
  • Set up and oversee the process to collect all legal agreements from game developers, and support the rest of the team when evolving the Trail Platform into a self-serve product (developers can sign directly on the website, etc.)
  • Be responsible for the collection and archiving of all legal documents.

Human resources

We will also need some help with the administrative side of human resources, mainly managing the salary payroll, vacations, expense claims, buying equipment, etc.

Seriously playful

We're a small crew with large ambitions and a lot of faith in our mission. We value playfulness and curiosity as much as courage and candour, and believe that the journey is at least as important as the goal.

When we're not hammering away to reach a milestone or overcome a challenge, we're known to goof around and dissect various subjects far beyond what's reasonable.

We're in this boat together and value the input of one another highly. No discipline is more important than the other and we keep a flat organization where we communicate a lot to make sure we're all rowing in the same direction.

Our guiding principles

  • Strive to bring value rather than to gain value.
  • Quality over quantity.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Make it fun.
