A bit about us

We are redefining the future of gaming by bringing professionally-made games to the browser. Our belief is that gaming shouldn't be limited to gamers — anyone should be able to play games and share them with their friends.

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 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.

Your mission

As a startup company that is quickly transitioning into a scale-up, we need somebody who can help us scale the accounting side of the business.

The responsibilities and workload of this role will evolve quickly as the company scales up in the coming year. This will require a pragmatic approach to problem-solving, and the ability to quickly adapt and evolve processes as the company continues to scale.

As part of our gaming platform, we also operate a global payments system that accepts payments in over 90 currencies and handles VAT/GST obligations on behalf of our game developers. In the coming months, as we work on adding new payment methods and further automating back-office processes, your role will also be a key contributor.

We need somebody with the drive and resourcefulness to, early on, work independently and take a hands-on approach, and at the same time, later be able to transition into a more traditional management role, being responsible for recruiting, growing, and leading their own team.

Being a senior position, we also expect a strong sense of responsibility and accountability, a high degree of autonomy, and the ability to communicate clearly and effectively.

Key responsibilities

  • Full ownership of the entire bookkeeping process; e.g. monthly bookkeeping, annual report in coordination with the company auditor, engaging and overseeing bookkeepers, defining the accounting plan, etc.
  • Full ownership of the back office process related to the revenue share calculation and payout to game developers.
  • Work in close coordination with the CEO and management team to produce key financial data necessary to inform company strategy.
  • Produce the necessary financial reports for existing and potential investors.
  • Recruiting and leading a financial team as the company scales up and the workload increases.

Requirements

  • Minimum of 3 years experience in a similar role with a strong track record in finance.
  • Experience in dealing with multiple currencies and jurisdictions is a big advantage.
  • Experience working at a marketplace business (two-sided network), especially within finance, is also an advantage.
  • Well acquainted with metrics like CAC, LTV, ROAS, ARPDAU, etc.
  • Used to working at a strategic and hands-on level.
  • Ability to work in an international, fast-paced, and fast-growing environment.
  • Fluent verbal and written communication skills in English

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.
