About Trollhättan

Trollhättan is a medium-sized city that is constantly growing with a rich university life, new innovative companies and expanding residential areas. Imagine your progress of approx. 4 hours gameplay in Simcity 3. Trollhättan is small enough for folks to have a pleasing dialect, but big enough to hold many good restaurants, bars and clubs with interesting artists/bands, cafes, cinemas and shops with everything you can think of. As well as a travel center with good connections, eg; 30 minutes train to Gothenburg and our own city airport with 45 minutes to Stockholm or Malmö.

Easy Trigger Games is located in the center of Trollhättan. We have all the restaurants and the beautiful canal with its green surroundings nearby. It never gets boring here. We try our best to do some fun stuff now and then, like playing games, go fishing or hunting ice bears with big rifles. We’re looking forward to having you onboard and you being part of shaping the studio as we’re constantly growing and evolving.

This is a permanent position based in Trollhättan, Sweden, and requires working onsite. We kindly ask you to apply with your CV and personal letter in English to this email: career@easytrigger.com
