About Rocksteady Studios

Rocksteady Studios make video games and are widely recognised for their Batman Arkham trilogy. Their games have sold over 50 million copies worldwide.

Rocksteady is unique amongst other game developers for many reasons, besides making amazing games. Rocksteady started as a small independent studio and published their first game in 2006. They have since grown and taken on a DC brand in the form of the Batman Arkham games, and created three blockbuster titles that have a huge fan base and following.

The organisation are aiming to continue their success with some great work which fans are eagerly anticipating. In order to create these amazing games they need to work with exceptional and talented people, so in order to attract and retain these employees, they must also understand what motivates and incentivises them.

Rocksteady have a great range of studio benefits including 25 days holiday and 2 days for charity work. They have a flexitime system which means you can start as early as 8am and leave at 4:30pm, or if you are not an early bird, you can come in as late as 10:30am and leave at 7pm.

The studio has a masseuse who comes in twice a week. They offer yoga every lunch hour with a qualified instructor. They will also pay £22 a month towards a gym membership.

Rocksteady are proud of their team and will regularly fly people to global games conferences to showcase their world-class talent. Rocksteady is one of the highest regarded games studio in the world and they pride themselves in taking care of their staff and hiring exceptional people.
