More about Roll7
Game Changers in Remote Working
We've been a remotely distributed studio for the past five years; way before any type of lockdown and pandemic, so we know how to make it work! But pre-restrictions we would make sure our team would meet up once every ten days to keep staff engagement alive and have some real life human interaction. We plan to pick this up again as soon as we can safely do so.
Our robust online communication system, alongside scheduled team fun days and activities, allow us to retain all the positives of a welcoming and friendly office environment, without the downsides of a long and expensive commute and office politics.
We know that remote work allows us to offer a high degree of freedom and autonomy to our motivated and creative staff, and we're passionate about making sure that everyone at Roll7 can work in a way that allows them to balance impressive workplace achievements with their own responsibilities at home.
To complement this we have a robust flexible working policy that allows you to cover your working hours however best suits you, so that the work day can fit around your needs - from doctor’s appointments, to the school run, to extra time to spend with your pets and family. We also do not crunch, we don't want our team to be burnt out or suffer from technostress so working your hours and not crunching is one of our biggest priorities.

We hire based on talent and suitability for the role - regardless of race, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, pregnancy, marital status or veteran status.
To support this, as a #RaiseTheGame pledge partner, we are deeply committed to creating an inclusive work environment that actively encourages applications from diverse backgrounds and perspectives across underrepresented communities such as BAME, LGBTQIA+ and Disabled applicants.
