Snowman is a small game studio at the centre of artful experiences. Whether as a developer or creative partner, our goal has always been the same — to create meaningful experiences that you may sit with for a short time, but that sit with you for a long while.
How do you maintain flexibility & balance for your team?
Snowman understands the importance of balancing hard work with the things that matter most in life. That’s why we offer competitive vacation time, lieu days, transportation and sustenance for work outside of regular hours, and more. We prioritize the health of all individuals on our team and foster a fun and supportive environment through studio-wide activities and our daily interactions with each other.
We also offer flexible working hours and are open to working arrangements that support individual needs.
How do you ensure autonomy and plan for the future?
At Snowman, we do our best to make sure each person finds their own autonomy within their area of expertise and their work. We hire strategically to set people up for success while making sure that they're still challenged regularly.
Playing to everyone’s strengths, leaders regularly turn to all members of the team for ideas and feedback. We believe that job titles shouldn't pigeonhole new ideas and avoid micromanaging or enforcing processes that overlook the way we perform as individuals. We are always looking for new ways to foster creativity and a receptive, open working environment. For us, the best idea always wins, no matter where it comes from.
How do you support your team to grow and improve?
From our first time meeting you, we like to find out what makes you excited to get out of bed in the morning and learn who you are beyond the role that we are hiring for. Because we value the diverse interests of our team members and care about helping them grow towards their goals, we offer opportunities to travel for conventions and attend events locally that will expand your skillsets, knowledge of the industry, and personal growth. Each individual works alongside a supervisor who is there to make sure they feel supported in their daily tasks, as well as their long-term potential for their future with Snowman.
Perks and benefits
At Snowman, we’re flexible on daily hours and working from home when required. We offer competitive vacation time and believe it’s important that everyone uses each of these days to ensure a healthy work-life balance! When a cool conference or event comes up that we think would be a beneficial experience for our team, we encourage them to attend and cover any associated costs.
Our studio is a fun and friendly environment with a team of creative individuals who like to play as hard as they work. Snacks, tea, and coffee are provided as well as the occasional surprise treat delivery.
Snowman is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to diversity and inclusion. Snowman welcomes all races, religions, genders, countries of origin, and sexual orientations.
