💪 The mission
We are redefining the future of gaming by bringing professionally-made games to the browser.
Why is it important?
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.
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 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.
🎮 The role
We are looking for a senior backend developer to join our growing team and help us build the best games platform, both for users and game developers.
We are still a small team so you will have a strong impact in our company and engineering culture. We want to work with people who are curious and passionate about their craft.
This is a long-term relationship for us, we believe our employees are our greatest assets and hope that you can grow with us, and have fun :)
Our tech stack consists mainly of a GoLang backend and a React frontend. The backend is deployed in GCP using Kubernetes. Most of the inter-service communication is done through gRPC.
Develop and maintain the back-end of our platform.
Participate in the design of the back-end architecture, proposing solutions, evaluating alternatives, etc.
Continuously monitor source code quality and tech debt, proposing improvements and refactors when relevant.
Contribute to the devops effort (no on-call duty though) by learning and understanding our devops setup, doing releases and rollbacks (hopefully not many, improving our CI, etc).
🌟 About you
Six years or more professional experience as a developer.
At least one year of professional experience in GoLang. Alternatively, we will also consider verifiable contributions to open-source GoLang projects or personal projects that you can share.
Comfortable working with SQL databases, ideally PostgreSQL.
Bonus if you have some experience working with Kubernetes, Google Cloud Platform, Istio, Terraform or similar technologies.
Good at communicating; you enjoy teaching and explaining things to other developers.
Eager to learn and challenge yourself.
Pragmatic, curious, and not afraid of challenging problems.
Respectful of other people's skills and knowledge.
