Multi award-winning British video game developer Rocksteady Studios is best known for the Batman Arkham games.

Founded in 2004 by Creative Director Sefton Hill and Studio Director Jamie Walker as a small start-up Rocksteady Studios first release came in 2006. Urban Chaos: Riot Response was a commercial success but it wasn’t until the launch of Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009 that the studio really made a name for themselves. To this day, the Arkham series remains the best-selling superhero video game series of all time. Rocksteady is currently working on the new 4-player action-adventure third-person shooter, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.

The team of over 250 works across many disciplines, yet all remain focused on only one game project at a time. Rocksteady are continually looking to expand its team, working closely with a Diversity and Inclusion group at Warner to continuously improve its diversity, as well as participating in workshops throughout the year on topics such as gender equity, gender fluidity and micro-aggressions training.

Rocksteady are also active in celebrating cultural events, and regularly host round table discussions with speakers on issues including the representation of people from marginalised groups in video games.

It's Central London office is open to those that wish to work full-time in the big city, but they also support full remote working, or a combination of the two. The special, welcoming and inclusive culture at Rocksteady is born from carefully listening to its team and continually improving.

Quote from the top...
We listen to our team in many ways, in meetings, surveys both internal and external, and bespoke happiness surveys, and so are very data driven, but it's the action we take that makes the difference and have a dedicated senior team to improve the company based on what our team tells us. Last year we made a lot of changes dealing with crunch, staffing, support for parents. Best Companies data is a fundamental part of how we improve.
