Our mission is to preserve the authenticity of cities through the power of play.

Secret City Trails takes travellers and locals on urban adventures – or city discovery games. During the games you solve a trail of riddles via our web app. Using a web app means no downloads are needed, just a little data. As you solve the riddles you explore a city’s hidden gems and unlock stories about the sights and area you are in, as well as (secret) recommendations to wonderful cafes and bars. The trails are a playful, off-the-beaten-track and self-guided way of discovering a city.

The role

Design for organic and paid social media + develop creative content for the site

We’re currently looking for a designer to join our team in sunny Lisbon, or remote, for a period of 1 month full time, or 2 months part time. 

Our designer will help us to create branded templates for organic social media (Facebook and Instagram), ads, video, company documents (think presentations we share externally), various elements on our site/blog and more! Of course, there will also be ad-hoc design requests for various projects and campaigns we’d be running at a particular time.

Besides working on the deliverables we will agree at the start of your internship, you’ll have the freedom to test your ideas and run experiments, in other words, you can be a true entrepreneur! We work in a fun (we do make games for a living!) and fast-paced (it’s a startup) environment. We’re a small team, so you’ll be working alongside the founders and your work will directly impact different aspects of our business.

What you’ll do:

  • Update our brand design guidelines
  • Design templates for organic social media posts
  • Design elements for our website and blog
  • Design templates to include in videos (start/end)
  • Design gift vouchers
  • Update the design of various company documents/presentations
  • Design templates for offline marketing material
  • Support any other business/design activities 

Your profile


We hire for attitude. We’re looking for a Designer who knows how to get the job done, who’s keen to learn and who thinks of creative solutions for any challenge. You also know how to thrive in an unstructured environment.

Some skills and traits we’re after:

  • Wizardry-level skills in the Adobe Creative Suite: Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, etc –  (a student or recent graduate with a diploma or degree in graphic/digital design)
  • Ability to produce work for a wide range of channels, including print, social media, email, desktop and mobile
  • Ability to manage and prioritise multiple projects

Why join?

This role might be the most playful one of your career…

We’re a small team with a lot of space for growth. In 1-2 months, you can grow way beyond the tasks outlined above. You get out what you put in. We’re in a sunny office downtown Lisbon, Rua da Prata, but you can be remote for this role too. We are part of a growing and international startup community at Startup Lisboa. We have flexible working hours. This is an unpaid internship (you are free to receive other grants). And obviously, this full time internship comes with free city discovery games! Plus, discount codes for your friends & family.
