At Sanctuary — we’re building a different type of technology shop. The way we approach building things is more like a restaurant than a traditional agency, with an emphasis in providing our clients with an outspoken sense of layman comfort and hospitality. We work solely in development roles, with clients like General Electric, Herman Miller, Adobe, Dig Inn and many others. We partner with the best design shops in NYC like Gin Lane, RoAndCo, PlayLab & Human NYC to create top tier User Interfaces.

That same thoughtfulness is applied inward, too. We understand that technologists & engineers have a strong sense of art and integrity, and are happier being a part of a team that promotes those values. 

We believe that there’s a better balance between the poles of freelancing & full time, and for that reason Sanctuary works differently to most shops:

- Profit Sharing: Every 12 months, we put aside a portion of profit earned throughout the year to be distributed to every member, though a simple calculation based on the overall team efficiency throughout the year, and time that each team member has been with Sanctuary.

- Investment Hours: We stop client work most Friday afternoons to spend time working on side projects, learning new technologies, working on art or music projects, and generally taking time for the things we'd usually never make time for.

- Ideas & Products: In our spare studio time, we work to build our own internal products to diversify & bolster our income. We create amazing technology products for our clients, so why not for the studio?

- Premium Fridays: In the spirit of Yvon Chouinard’s “Let My People Go Surfing”, the last Friday of every month is a day off. We think that well rested, calm and thoughtful team members make far better decisions, and 12 extra long weekends each year helps everyone stay focused.

- Start Time Flexibility: We generally start between 10am & 11am everyday, and do a solid 8 hours. If you’re an early riser or like a sleep in, either works for us!

- Transparency & Ownership: We release out Profit & Loss statements to the community each year, open source our best ideas, and talk business & money with everyone in the company. We’re proud to run our business with integrity, and for that reason we share everything with our team & community.

- Anti-bloat & Efficiency: Every business tends toward complexity as time goes on, introducing procedural bloat and middle management. Sanctuary instead employs a lean, flat management structure that can only work in a small, carefully curated team like ours. The outcome: we can move quickly and with precision, while never feeling over-managed.

- We chill too! Wether it’s gallery afternoons, our wild halloween parties, Unity code jams on our HTC Vive or upstate weekends, we do what we can to break up the work week.

Right now, we’re looking for a senior level Full Stack Developer to build amazing work and take part in our technology process, and interface with clients & studio producers.
