We are looking for systems developers to join our team and help us out in building the best gaming platform in the world. We want your help to continue improving the tools and libraries we provide to game studios so that they can bring their games to the Trail platform.

You will work mainly with C++ and Go and with a variety of compilers (GCC, Clang, MSVC and Emscripten) since we aim to support Windows, Linux, macOS and WebAssembly. Besides that, the rest of our tech stack also includes Typescript, React, Kubernetes, Istio, gRPC, among others. We are also looking for a chance to use Rust as well :)

As a small team we need people with initiative, focused on solving problems and ready to take on new challenges. We love building great products and we believe that is only truly possible when engineering and design work closely together. That is why we believe communication and a healthy dose of respect for other people's work and knowledge are essential. There is also ample opportunity to take on new responsibilities and learn new things.


  • Develop and maintain multi-platform libraries and tools for game studios.
  • Troubleshoot and help out game studios integrate our libraries and use our tools.
  • Evaluate and communicate the pros, cons and costs of each potential solution or implementation.

Technical skills

  • C++ experience, preferably in a professional setting.
  • Comfortable developing multiplatform code.
  • Comfortable with CMake and Git, and comfortable around the terminal.
  • Any experience working with Emscripten and/or WebAssembly would be great.
  • Some basic knowledge of C# and/or Unity would also come in handy.
  • And any Rust knowledge is always great :)

Soft skills

  • Good at communicating, you enjoy teaching and explaining things to other developers.
  • Pragmatic, curious and not afraid of hard problems.
  • Respectful of other people's skills and knowledge.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!

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

  • Focus on creating value for people and the rest will sort itself out.
  • Quality over quantity.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Make it fun.
