Studio Culture

A crew of kind builders

We believe that to create incredible, inclusive games, you need thoughtful and well-supported people. We do what we say we'll do, and we're not afraid to ask for help if we need it. As a result, we're a high-autonomy, high-accountability studio that doesn't micromanage. There's an assumed good intention driving everyone's work, pace, and output.

With inclusion and diversity so foundational to our studio's mission, we take the responsibility to create a safe, mentally healthy, uplifting, empowering workplace very seriously. We thrive on transparency, feedback, and sharing our multifaceted perspectives. Team culture isn't just some abstract list of principles on a website for us - we live and stand by our values every day. We care for each other and we strive to ensure our work is done to the absolute highest ethical standard.

Being a remote-first studio with teammates all across the globe, we have a project management style that emphasizes clear communication and asynchronous collaboration over hard-set working hours. We believe that everyone helping bring a project to life has a stake in our shared success, and as a result, we do our milestone planning transparently, in the open, with our team.

Belief in our team

With accountability and autonomy being so core to how we work, our studio places a ton of trust in our teammates. As a result, we make sure that anyone joining Good Trouble can handle the responsibility of no one looking over their shoulder. If anyone wants or needs mentorship to succeed, learn a new skill, or to take their first steps in the industry, we support that by flexibly building-in additional structure as needed.

We want anyone becoming a Good Troublemaker to feel valued, respected, and empowered to do the best work of their career. Our team structure is extremely flat, and as a result, we move quickly without political hurdles to clear, or auteurs to win over. Simply put: we really believe in our people! We also cover things like books and courses needed for our crew to expand their skill sets and hone their craft. We uphold an enduring responsibility to make Good Trouble a better, more thoughtful, more inspired place to work.

Also we get it, our culture and style of working might not be for everyone - and that's ok! We only want people to join Good Trouble if they themselves feel like they're a good fit here, just as much as we want to feel it's a good fit too. In the grand scheme of things, it's still the early days of the studio, so while there's a ton of freedom, there's also a lot of unexplored territory. We think it's an amazingly exciting chapter, and we want people who are comfortable with braving the unknown to build something incredible together.

If this sounds like the kind of place you'd thrive, we'd love to get to know you! Become a Good Troublemaker.
