Great games are made by equally great people.
We’re a small, but growing, company where each team member can have an impact. We don’t do “crunch culture”, and we want our team members to have work-life balance. We do this by offering remote work opportunities (work where you want!) and flexible hours (work when you want!). We believe in transparency fostered by communication and collaboration. We also believe in the positive power of pets and have several office dogs who take turns brightening up the office!
While we got our start in beautiful Victoria, B.C, our Kanodians are now a remote workforce, spread across Canada, but connected by our shared values. Maintaining a sense of community when our team members are not in the same physical space can be challenging, but we take time to hold regular virtual get-togethers so all our team members can see each other’s smiling faces. And we still have in-person events and activities. A monthly Beer Friday at our downtown Victoria office for our local team members, and the Kano Summit where all our team members come together in Victoria for a week of meetings, seminars and team-building.
Player impact is our touchstone. We work to earn our players’ trust, seek to understand their pain points, and build games that cater to our players’ wants and needs – not our own.
At Kano we don’t just complete tasks, we own outcomes. If we make mistakes, we are the first to take responsibility. We never say, “That’s not my job.”
We do more with less and understand that there will be constraints that will require us to be resourceful in our pursuit of impactful solutions. Impossible is a challenge we gladly accept.
We are in a perpetual pursuit of “better”. We are relentless about improving and value individuals with the curiosity to learn, grow, and push themselves, and our games to be better. Check out our library at: kanoapps.com/books.
