New York is consistently voted one of the greatest cities in which to live, work and play. It represents incredible diversity, infinite possibility – and the best pizza on the planet.

OPEN POSITIONS in NYC

From world class restaurants, shopping and theater to astonishing museums, galleries, monuments and Central Park, New York offers an infinite array of things to see, explore and experience.

THE NEW YORK STUDIO IS LOCATED IN A BRIGHT, OPEN AND AIRY CUSTOM-DESIGNED SPACE SPANNING 20,000 SQUARE FEET AND OFFERING A WIDE ARRANGE OF AMENITIES TO KEEP OUR EMPLOYEES HAPPY AND MOTIVATED.

We’ve collected a few links below that will give you some insight in the greatness that is New York City.

FINDING A PLACE TO LIVE

More than 6 million people commute to Manhattan every business day using one of the largest mass transportation hubs in the world. This means there are endless possibilities to live inside and outside the city. The tri-state area includes Connecticut, New Jersey, and suburban New York – and don’t forget the 5 boroughs! We offer relocation and housing assistance to help with the transition. Many of our staff have relocated to New York and we make the process as easy and stress free as possible.

Our studio offers amazing views of an amazing city. You'll never forget where you are.

PERKS + BENEFITS

EXCELLENT HEALTHCARE

All employees are offered 100% covered health care from the first day of employment including Medical, Dental and Vision. Eligible dependents are included such as a spouse and children. We also offer FSA, STD, LTD, and a 401K program.

SOUND WORKING HOURS

We believe in an 8 hour work day to promote real work/life balance. We try hard to avoid the ”industry crunch” by working together as a team during core hours while still offering flexible schedules.

PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT AND TALENT DEVELOPMENT

We believe that the career development of our staff is a key part of our success and we measure that by ensuring we have capable leads and a talent management structure. We promote individual growth and allow our staff to move across the ocean to try something different. This gives our employees the opportunity to gain new professional and personal experiences regardless of where they sit within the Avalanche family.

PAID TIME OFF

Every full-time employee is offered 25 paid vacation days per year from the first day of employment. We close the studio for two weeks every summer to give you the possibility to unwind, kick up your feet and be able to focus 100% on your family and loved ones while not worrying about what’s happening at the office. Plus, with 14 regular paid bank and religious holidays, this gives each employee up to 39 vacation days per year.

NEXT GENERATION FACILITIES

Avalanche Studios offers the latest technology not only for our game development, but for our frequent game nights as well. We have 20,000 square feet of brand-new spaces that feature a recreational zone with large plasma screens for gaming, a big kitchen with fully stocked refrigerators offering free drinks and fruit, several meetings rooms and our trademark open plan development floor that keeps everyone completely accessible at all times.

Regular social events

Members of Avalanche Studios regularly get together for a wide variety of events. These include regular catered meals, trips to Central Park, tours around the city, regular pub nights and parties.
