New York, NY
The walk from my first apartment in Chicago to my gym used to take me by an office building that had a handful of below ground offices with windows at street level. Nearly every time I walked by, I would see the same guy sitting at his desk playing Solitaire on his computer. I eventually developed a sad story in my head about this guy’s life–his wife left him, he hates his job but has nowhere to go but his office, and Solitaire is his only joy in life. I’m sure it was wildly inaccurate, but I’ll never know. The office is now unoccupied, and my walk to the gym doesn’t go by there anymore anyway. But let’s be honest, everybody can enjoy a little mindless gaming. It’s not something that we’d want to do in full view of everyone else like this guy, but it’s a great way to kill some time or take a break. Arkadium is a New York, NY based company that develops “casual, mobile, social, and Windows 8 games.” If only the guy knew about all of his options beyond Windows Solitaire.
Want to get to know Arkadium? Go play their games. They have Flash, Facebook, iOS, and Windows options. They’re all low time-investment games that are fun to play and don’t need sustained attention. I’m not quite sure how they’re monetized (the Flash games don’t seem to have any ads), but they must be monetized because Arkadium has bootstrapped itself into a multimillion dollar company without any outside funding. They reach over 9 million unique gamers every month, so it’s not surprising that they’re raking in cash. Arkadium was named one of the “10 Great Entrepreneurial Places to Work” by The New York Enterprise Report,” so that should be enough incentive to make you check out their Jobs page. Right now there are some great options including:
Arkadium looks like a really cool place to work, and nobody will look down on you for playing games at your desk.
