Sumo Digital is proud to announce that we will be opening our second UK studio in Nottingham this March.
“There were two main drivers behind the decision to open a second studio,” Sumo COO Paul Porter tells Develop. “Firstly, we wanted to augment our core competencies with new skillsets and new business models. Secondly, we want to increase our reach to more potential employees.”
“It’s a busy time at Sumo and we can only grow in Sheffield at a certain rate. Opening a studio in Nottingham gives us access to a larger talent pool, accelerating our growth to meet the demands of a growing industry. It’s a bit chicken and egg, as the team we put together will help us form the best option around the new opportunities.”
The decision to move to Nottingham came after a long process of location scouting, searching for a new base of operations that would fit with the firm’s Sheffield HQ.
Sumo CEO Carl Cavers added: “Opening the new Sumo studio proves how serious we are about extending our core capabilities to both better serve our AAA client base and reflect our ambition to explore new opportunities across console, PC, mobile and VR.
With any large company expansion, comes a number of job opportunities and this expansion is no exception. Starting from today, we will be opening our doors to budding video game professionals of all proficiencies. Whether you’re looking to get your start in the industry or class yourself as an industry veteran, we want to hear from YOU.
