Bungie Remote Work

Destiny developer Bungie has just announced that many current and future roles within their company will be fully remote eligible in certain states as part of their "digital-first" initiative. It also seems like some of these positions are for their unannounced project.

The transition to work-from-home worldwide has finally clawed into the gaming landscape. While there have been initiatives in place during the bulk of the pandemic, companies like Riot Games are now pushing for a return to the office, so it comes as a surprise that Bungie stands with the WFH model. However, the list of states is currently limited to Washington, California, Oregon, Illinois, Florida, North Carolina, and Texas for remote eligibility. Bungie stated that more states would get the same treatment in the future.

On Twitter, Bungie CEO Pete Parsons offered commentary on the massive choice that is bound to be an eye-turner for prospective employees:

"Over the past two years, we have redefined how we work at Bungie. The transition to work-from-home wasn’t easy, but the results speak for themselves. Today, it’s clear that a digital-first workplace isn’t the future of work – it is already here, and We. Are. All. In."

Following his message, Game Director Christopher Barrett announced that "multiple remote eligible positions [are] open" for an unannounced title from the studio. Whether you're hoping to work for Bungie or not, they have put out quite a compelling offer for those with the skills and stateside luck. The "digital-first" initiative from Bungie is a huge benefit for employees who work best within their homes or battle with life responsibilities daily. Now I'm curious which studios will join the trend next to win some brownie points.
