We are looking for a Head of Growth to join our team in Helsinki!


Lightneer aims to create fun and snackable mobile games made by growth-oriented and happy, curious people.

We are all about understanding our games’ potential quickly by developing and testing a few hybrid casual game ideas monthly. As a key member of our world-class team, you will have the opportunity to make your mark on new fun mobile games played worldwide.

Head of Growth is our Marketing Lead and Performance marketing director wrapped in one. The role exists to build our marketing team from the ground up and facilitate Lightneer’s new growth path into a self-publishing game studio. We are currently going through two different transformations: Firstly, we are changing our publisher-centric business model into us publishing our own games. Secondly, we are moving our product focus from hyper casual games into the emerging hybrid casual market. We believe that by combining the best practices of hyper casual games into the best retention features of casual games we can provide snackable, yet long engaging games to our players!

We live by our values Honesty, Respect and Playfulness and are excited to grow our operation to the next level with you!
