We are a family of exceptional talent and offer our people industry leading benefits, support and perks in acknowledgement of that. Our size and flexibility provide outstanding stability and our support for WFH, visas and relocation mean we're here for you. So if you want to be a part of a fast growing, award-winning, dynamic company, offering career-defining projects, a pathway to grow your career and almost unlimited learning opportunities, then look no further.
Sumo Digital is made up of a diverse mix of fantastic people, although sometimes, some groups are still under-represented. We are working to remove obstacles that can make it difficult for those groups to progress their careers in the games industry. We welcome applications from under-represented people in the gaming industry, including, but not limited to BAME, LGBQT+, women, people with physical disabilities, neurodiversity or mental health issues, and parents or carers.
Our environment is relaxed, friendly and built on every team member having the opportunity to shine and have real, meaningful input into the games that we create. We pride ourselves on our positive atmosphere and sociable team who regularly partake in shared interest groups, lunchtime and after-work clubs, and charity fundraising events.
We offer a superb benefits package including generous holidays and flexi-time. We care about our people, with an emphasis on the work/life balance and out of office events such as our legendary annual Sumo ‘Big Day Out’, plus epic Christmas parties and much more! Our regular studio Game Jams are a highlight - winning concepts can go on to commercial release, which so far include Snake Pass and Spyder.
It’s an exciting time to be part of Sumo, this year has seen Sumo Digital pick up several awards including Best Studio at Develop Brighton for a second year in a row, wins at the MCV/Develop Women in Games Awards, listings in the GI.Biz Best Places to Work Awards for Red Kite Games and Lab42 and four nominations at the upcoming industry TIGA Awards.
We want to open the door to graduates looking to make their first career move, those skilled in different industries and those seeking a career change.
Currently, our wider participation programme focuses on game programming (software development) and we took on our first cohort of trainees in September 2020.
Charity runs deep in the foundations of the Sumo family, where we wholeheartedly support some wonderful causes. Keep an eye on our social media channels to see how else we’re supporting charity in each of our studios.
