Work @ ATA

Values

When we set out to make great games with massive online communities, we knew that we first had to create the ideal environment for building ambitious things. A place where brilliant and inspiring people could come together and build games that make millions of players happy. We realized that we needed to find incredibly talented people and get out of their way. Since then we've paid careful attention to how we like to work together. This is a brief summary of our guiding principles.

OWNERSHIP

We take complete ownership of our work and act in the best interests of the company. We’re the type of people who care - a lot. It’s never “not my job.”

HAVE WONDERFUL ARGUMENTS

We’re comfortable thinking deeply about important issues and care enough to respectfully challenge decisions when we disagree. Mutual respect and checked egos allow for productive debate and better outcomes than any we would have achieved individually.

THE BEST IDEAS WIN

We want everyone involved in problem-solving, regardless of their position. We frequently seek feedback from each other and our players in order to challenge our assumptions and make data-driven decisions when possible.

KEEP GROWING

We’re always building and improving our skills and processes. We understand that when we learn, we see exponential improvement in ourselves, our products and our company. We’re never finished learning.

OWNER’S MANUAL

We invite you to learn more about our culture by reading our Owner’s Manual; our guide on “how to ATA”. All the things that are most important to us are in this book: our commitments, how we make decisions, how we communicate, and what makes us unique. Take a look, and let us know what you think!

What We Offer

MONEY MATTERS

Our competitive salary and benefits packages make sure our team are compensated well and rewarded for their performance. We also take care of health and dental.

WORK-LIFE FLOW

In addition to vacation days, we offer unlimited sick days, flexible scheduling and work from home options.

HUNGRY?

We've got it covered! Our kitchen is always stocked with a wide variety of snacks and every Wednesday we provide catered lunch.

KEEP LEARNING

We support the growth of our team with professional development funding, regular lunch and learns, annual game jams and bi-weekly 1:1s with team leads.

GET SOCIAL

We celebrate monthly “Birthiversaries”, organize ad-hoc game tournaments and have random, pop-up team events. Oh, and our summer and holiday parties? They’re epic!

HEALTH & WELLNESS

On top of our annual fitness reimbursement, we have on-site yoga sessions, a monthly massage clinic and our company-sponsored hockey and dodgeball teams. (Go Rampage!)

 

We’re proudly recognized by the following organizations:

Hiring Process

We aim to hire people who share our values, believe in building communities and can add to our culture. We understand that there's no such thing as a perfect interview process; however, the team's decision to hire must be unanimous. The strongest teams are formed when people get to choose who they work with.

What to expect when you apply

Once a year our team set aside their usual responsibilities and get to create all-new mobile games. Three days, multiple teams and copious amounts of snacks and red bull. Check out the video for a glimpse into the action.

What Our People Say

no-avatar Yara Game Designer

ATA's awesome culture shines through in everything that we do, and has been one of the reasons why I love working here. We work hard to include everyone in making our games great and building our communities, which means anyone can pitch an idea and will be heard, no matter their role. That kind of culture is so valuable, where you know your opinion matters and where you are recognized for your work.

no-avatar Chelsea Community Manager

Have wonderful arguments. One of the four pillars upon which ATA’s strong growth culture stands, this particular value is one that rings loud across our office halls. From deciding whether a growth experiment is high-risk versus high-impact to taking sides in the Great Pro- vs Anti-Pineapples on Pizza War of 2018, there is no room for ego; only space for respectfully challenging each other’s convictions with the ultimate goal for overall positive change.

The ability to retain great talent is directly related to the culture at ATA, where if you're smart and ambitious, they will do their best to tailor the role to suit your strengths and give you the support you need to develop your career in whichever direction you choose. Having this type of faith from your employer not only develops confidence but also enables you to take ownership over your work, which goes a long way in keeping employees motivated and happy.
