Trailmix is a new mobile games company based in London’s vibrant Camden Town. Our growing team works collaboratively and creatively to solve problems, and we iterate quickly to make amazing games.
Trailmix founders Caro and Tristan are mobile games veterans with a combined total of 20 years in the industry. After securing funding from mobile games giant Supercell, we have gathered a team of amazingly talented people. Our company mission is simple: to combine great storytelling with the best in free-to-play mobile gaming.
In this role you will join a small art team, assisting with the art and animation on our new game. You will work in a self-organised team and collaborate closely with other artists, designers and developers.
We share a lot of the artistic values of our backer Supercell — we are creating a brand new IP with a fun, strong and recognizable art style for casual games.
As a versatile artist, some of your day-to-day tasks include:
Creating 2D artwork to fit the style of the game
Animating characters, objects, UI and effects
Prepare, implement, test and manage art assets in Unity
Concepting and developing new features with other disciplines
Assisting with UI assets
Participating in collaborative team discussions
Planning workflow and tasking your work
You have high professional standards with good attention to quality and detail. You’re very organised, proactive and always keen to learn and improve your skills. You are a great team player, but also have the ability to work flexibly and independently on tasks from conception to finish, using your problem solving abilities. You love getting involved with the creative side, and are also happy to work with developers and implement your work into the engine.
Strong artistic abilities in rendering consistent final 2D assets - environments, characters and icons
Strong 2D animation skills (preferably Spine)
Ability to create and adapt to multiple art styles
Preparing and implementing assets using Unity or a similar engine
Mobile game experience
Some nice bonus skills include:
Advanced spine rigging experience
Superstar skills in Unity
Strong technical art skills (ie. shaders, effects and particles)
Why join Trailmix?
This is an incredible opportunity for an enthusiastic, ambitious and proactive person to really make a difference and be a part of something amazing.

Benefits include: Competitive salary, EMI share options, latest tech equipment, great team events (German Christmas Markets, Disney Castle visit, Pirate ship trip on the Thames amongst others) and being part of the amazing Supercell family.
