Trail is redefining the future of gaming by bringing the best mobile games to the web.
Mobile gaming is a massive industry filled with hundreds of thousands of titles in dozens of genres. Game discovery is a nightmare and requires publishers to make huge advertising spends to gain visibility. Thousands of amazing mobile titles have no reasonable way to cut through the noise. Trail’s porting and publishing solution allows mobile developers to easily release their titles on browsers, opening massive new audiences who want high quality games available with a single click.
Think of us as an app store for browsers. But with no downloads. No installs. No paywalls.
We’ve stripped away all the barriers so players can simply launch a game and play. It’s as simple as that.
We aren’t an emulation environment, and we aren’t a cloud streaming solution. Our platform is a completely new solution that maximizes performance while minimizing external dependencies. We work directly with developers who port their titles to the Trail platform also enables cross-play with the original mobile game.
As Head of Marketing, you will be the first employee in the company dedicated exclusively to marketing strategy and implementation. Reporting directly to the CCO, this role will require a marketing generalist who can fill many roles that will eventually be filled by specialists as we expand later in 2022. The list of desired experience is long, so don’t worry if you haven’t done everything on the list. We are looking for a marketing specialist who is passionate about gaming and can bring as much expertise as possible, while being open about learning the rest as we grow.

The heavy lifting early on will focus on a new web site, social media, inbound content, advertising and SEO/SEM. But this role will also be expected to contribute strategically working with the CCO to refine positioning for both B2B customers and our B2C player community.
