An Insider's view of Aristocrat

What are some social events your company does?

The company has social events for all major holidays such our annual Christmas Party, Mardi gras, and Diwali where we get together as a group.

Chris Tisdale

Associate Architect

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m always most excited about the next one. With each new game we create we look to build upon previous success, implement learnings for new opportunities, and provide the player with a new or unique experience. It’s during this creation phase where we define the foundation of the game - the emotions we want players to feel while playing.

Kim Rogers

Director, Game Design – Studio 54

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I’ve been able to access internal mobility early in my employment, finding a new role that suit my skills and my career goals.

Shannon Leyden

Product Manager

What's something quirky about your company?

If I tell someone I work at Aristocrat, then I get a funny look and a “what’s that?”. If I say I work for the company that makes the Buffalo Game, then instantly everyone knows what I am talking about. I get comments of “Buffaallloo” or “ I love that game.” Or “Oh that’s my favorite”.
