GAMES ARE ART.
WE BRING ART TO LIFE.
At ArenaNet, we’ve always believed that games are art. They have the power to communicate ideas and tell stories. They can change the way we think, reflect our cultures, and move us. That potential is our passion. For over fifteen years, we’ve explored it by dreaming up our own worlds and crafting them into real places online, where everyone can adventure, discover, relax, and play.
ArenaNet develops and publishes games for every kind of person, which means our games need to be built by every kind of person. We believe the best experiences come from working together, celebrating differences, and helping each of our team members shine.
Game development is an incredible collaboration that brings together expertise and innovation from every discipline. That's why we prize teamwork so highly—each of us offers unique ideas, solutions, and life experiences. Those values extend far beyond our approach to design; we know that we're at our best when people from all backgrounds and walks of life work side by side. It's an integral part of who we are as a studio, and we believe it makes our games that much better.
Our games, and the spaces we create for players to share with each other, are not places for harassment, abuse, or hate. We want to build communities where people are allies—where they lift each other up and make each other's worlds better. In designing games with that in mind—with room for everyone to be a hero—we reward unique strengths. We strive to model these concepts in the real world too, especially here in our studio.
Recognizing the strengths of team members fosters a culture that empowers everyone to embrace their identity. It means striving to recruit talent from marginalized and underrepresented groups. It means standing with our employees, protecting them from harassment, and working to sustain a safe, inclusive environment.
ArenaNet is a diverse and dynamic community of unique individuals. Every day we work to get better at what we do, we have another chance to help make the world a better place.
