We are the makers of casual mobile hit Love & Pies, which globally launched in September 2021 and has now found its way into the hands of millions of players around the world. We’re backed by Supercell, one of the biggest and best in the industry.

We make games for everyone that are snackable yet nourishing — built to fit into your daily life, but with the emotional depth of your favourite TV show. Our team always comes first at Trailmix, and our culture is built on both high performance and high care — we strive to be the best versions of ourselves, but always within an environment based on inclusivity, respect and safety, no matter who you are or where you come from.

At Trailmix, we strive to make games that are not only snackable, but also nourishing. For the design team, that means constantly asking two questions: how can we create designs that rival the most successful casual games in the world, and what experiences and emotional sustenance can we give our players that they’ve never experienced in games before? The former is all about crafting wonderful distractions that stay fresh for years; the latter is about creating story worlds our players want to inhabit for a lifetime

About the role:

This is an amazing and rare opportunity for a talented and ambitious Lead Game Designer that wants full ownership of the creative vision and wants to make a real impact on a rapidly growing and successful game with huge amounts of potential.

It would suit a self-starter that can evaluate the state of the game, be reactive to its needs and have the confidence to challenge the established plan where necessary.

The Lead Game Designer will also play a key part in achieving Trailmix’s mission: to foster a culture of trust, respect and creativity which allows us to make beautiful long lasting games that can be played by everyone.

Love & Pies represents the people we are and the people we love, and we’re always looking to add more people who want to design games for everyone.
