About Gentle Troll

Gentle Troll Entertainment develops games that have something to say in the heart of the young student metropolis of Würzburg. We are passionate about games with captivating gameplay and captivating stories that take you away from everyday life, reveal new perspectives and also like to give you something to think about.

We always strive for the highest quality in order to create experiences that inspire. In order for us to succeed, we rely on the development of a sustainable, employee-oriented company culture that avoids crunch and offers many opportunities for compensation: With flexible working hours, options for part-time and a clear overtime regulation, we create the basis for a harmonious integration of work and private life - also for young families.

We maintain an open, modern communication culture with flat hierarchies in which the opinions of all employees from different disciplines are valued. Mentoring goes beyond management and the focus is on strong team play and mutual growth through mutual support. That is why we are looking for colleagues who do not extend their elbows but who can shake hands, work independently and motivate themselves like others.

Community is very important to us: We set up and encourage exchange platforms and formats for game developers of all disciplines, such as the Indie Outpost, because we believe that we can all learn from each other and move forward together. We hate trench warfare and we have excellent relationships with many independent studios in Bavaria, Germany and beyond.

If that sounds like a workplace where you feel comfortable and if you would like to work with us on-site in our studio in Würzburg on games that want to conquer the market with their unique signature, we look forward to receiving your application!
