Lead UI Engineer

We're making a football game

We are developing a fair game, that is a reflection of football, rather than the football industry. We are creating a game that’s fun right away, driven by gameplay, and where mastery will lead to the most competitive esports scene. We want our game to be accessible from anywhere, on any platform and to anyone, without having to invest a fortune.

We aim to create a global community of players, representative of the world, free of toxicity, and where playing football games is enjoyable and convivial again, whether it’s for fun or at a high competitive level. We want to inspire every kid that plays football or video games and help them feel like they can bring out the best in them, in a respectful and safe league.

GOALS is for everyone, like football can and should be. It’s for the casuals and the pros. For the players, the managers, and the fans. For the creators and the fashionistas - whether you’re into perfecting your team's look, showing off your own style, or just admiring the creativity around you. GOALS is football.
