We are redefining the future of gaming by bringing professionally-made games to the browser. 

Why is it important?

Our belief is that gaming shouldn't be limited to gamers — anyone should be able to play games and share them with their friends. 

Billions of people surf the web daily to entertain themselves, reading blogs, watching movies, listening to music, and much more. But what they have not been able to do is play high-quality games. If you want to play professionally-made games, you either need to download and install game clients on your computer, or reach to your mobile for a more accessible experience. This has caused gaming to be divided into two camps, where casual gamers are pushed to play on mobile and PC is restricted to hardcore gamers.

By enabling professionally-made games to be played in the browser, more people are able to enjoy great games, and game studios can find brand new audiences.

How are we different? 

Trail makes gaming easier than watching YouTube by allowing games to be played in the browser. No downloads. No installs. No paywalls. Just play. The time it takes to start playing a game on Trail is less than the time it takes to finish reading this sentence. Don’t believe us? Just visit www.trail.gg/games and enjoy zero-friction gaming.  

 

Our mission is to bring down the barriers to gaming by providing creators with tools that make their games truly accessible, easily discoverable, and virally shareable - with games just one click away from billions of potential players. 

 

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a Product Lead to advocate our vision, own the product development process and ensure a great experience for our players and game studios alike. 

You’ll translate ideas and customer feedback into product strategy and features, and own the product development from start to finish. 

To succeed in this role, you should be structured, entrepreneurial, experimentative, and data-informed in your approach of prioritizing the right features and leading our product towards becoming the leading distribution platform for games. 

Above all, we want to build a product that our users love. So, we would like you to set the standard in UX and product design thereby ensuring our users have the best experience with Trail. In this endeavor, you’ll be assisted by a world-class team with a strong product culture and an urge to get things right.

What you’ll be doing

  1. Advocate the product vision and ensure the product is of top quality.
  2. Bring structure and framework to the product development process and ensure adherence to the process across the team. 
  3. Collect and analyze feedback from customers (B2B and B2C), stakeholders, and other teams to shape requirements, features, and end products.
  4. Work with senior management to create product plans and roadmaps.
  5. Lead the product team and ensure the learning, growth, and development of the product team to the next level as we scale.

What you should have

  1. 7+ years of product management experience, typically in a start-up or scale-up within either gaming, SaaS, marketplace, or B2B2C products.
  2. An entrepreneurial mindset; you don’t need direction; you're self-driven
  3. An organized way of working, not ad hoc.
  4. Ability to clearly communicate product decisions and the rationale behind them. You’re comfortable making decisions without consensus. You can also help others make decisions by being persuasive.
  5. Experience leading teams through fast-paced product development iterations.
  6. Experience in UX/UI or product design.
  7. Product owner/ product lead experience is a huge plus.
  8. Excellent communication skills in English.

Why join us?

At Trail, you'll join a global mission with other talented and skilled people like yourself. You'll be part of a rapidly growing startup and lead a world-class product team.

We're still a small team, so you'll be able to partake in building the organization as it grows, and have the opportunity to define your own role within the company. In addition to this, you’ll also get to take part in our stock options program which aims at incentivizing ownership in both the literal and the non-literal sense.

Our journey brings us in contact with major international corporations as well as indie game studios and gamers from all over the world. This means we need people with all sorts of backgrounds, talents, and skills to be able to meet the unique challenges we face on a daily basis.

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

  • Providing is more important than receiving.
  • Quality over quantity.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Make it fun.
