We’re looking for a full-time multi-talented Studio Coordinator to support our bustling indie studio in Toronto. This role is part administrative and part engagement with the external communities of our games.

If it’s in your nature to take care of people, build relationships, and be motivated by organizing many moving parts, this role is made for you. You’ll help our studio run smoothly by keeping tabs on the small details that matter and have many opportunities to learn and grow.

What you have

  • Experience working in a fast-paced environment
  • Extremely strong organization and multi-tasking skills and the ability to juggle many projects at once
  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills with an ability to adapt to multiple styles
  • Strong understanding of social media platforms and practices
  • Confident self-starter who can work independently and flourish without micromanagement
  • Patience for last-minute tasks and happy to go with the flow when things pivot
  • Incredible attention to detail
  • Fluent in English (other languages a plus)

Responsibilities

  • Organize and oversee the day-to-day in the office, including managing supplies, hardware and software, office space, etc.
  • Manage studio-wide support channels for multiple games, projects and merchandise across email and social media
  • Handle all merch-related support and projects
  • Have your finger on the pulse of our online communities and engage with players regularly
  • Coordinate and book studio-wide events, meetings and travel (when safe to do so again)
  • Assist with Human Resources tasks and general studio admin and keep things organized and centralized

Bonus - It’s nice to have, but not required

  • Knowledge of the games, creative or entertainment industries
  • An interest in great design, copywriting and creative media
  • Experience with Apple’s platforms (iOS/tvOS/macOS)

At Snowman, we’re flexible on daily start times and we don't like to micromanage—we want you to be empowered to make decisions on your own. Experience, talent, and drive are more important than fancy school degrees.

About Snowman

Snowman is a small studio at the centre of artful experiences. Whether as a developer or creative partner, our goal has always been the same: to create meaningful experiences that you may sit with for a short time, but that sit with you for a long while.

Founded in 2012 with the release of the to-do app Checkmark, we went on to launch Shifts, Circles and Super Squares before collaborating with Harry Nesbitt on Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey. In September 2019, Snowman released Where Cards Fall and Skate City exclusively on Apple Arcade. Skate City became available on PC and console in May 2021, with Where Cards Fall set to arrive on PC and Nintendo Switch soon after.

In May 2021, Snowman introduced Pok Pok, a new studio centred around creative, play-based learning experiences for kids. Their first app, Pok Pok Playroom, is a digital playroom of educational toys that spark creativity and learning through open-ended play.

On the horizon is DISTANT; our collaboration with Slingshot and Satchel.

Our Games

The Alto Collection brings both the critically acclaimed and beloved Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey into one experience for the first time. A whole new group of players will finally be able to see what millions of others have discovered as they explore the ivory snows and the endless desert on the big screen in one collection.

Join mountain shepherd Alto and friends as they set out to rescue their escaped llamas and find the adventure of a lifetime. In this collection, you will journey across the beautiful alpine hills of their native wilderness and soar above windswept dunes in a fantastical place far from home. Each procedurally-generated run provides new inspiration and a fresh set of challenges that seamlessly blends our unique landscapes together.

Where Cards Fall is a slice of life puzzle game where you build houses of cards to bring formative memories to life. Create pathways through dreamlike spatial puzzles to navigate the insecurities and emotions of high school and beyond.

Along with helping you solve puzzles, the houses of cards give each scene a distinct identity and sense of place. As you solve them, you’ll gain small glimpses into our characters’ lives, uncovering memories within the houses of cards. While the puzzles gently flow into each other, things don’t always conclude neatly.

DISTANT takes you on a wondrous voyage through pastel dreamscapes, to prevent a calamity from consuming the world you once knew. Along the way, you’ll confront an inescapable past, and learn how much you're willing to sacrifice in your search for solace.
