Sheffield is the place it all started.  We have worked hard to earn our place as a premium development partner to leading publishers and developers across the world, trusted to deliver incredible game experiences to our players. Over 300 highly skilled people, working in creative, technical, and leadership disciplines across all platforms have come together to produce AAA games in multiple genres, utilising the latest in cutting-edge game engine technology.  We are proud to have played our part in developing some of the most iconic and valued IPs in the industry.

COVID 19 has impacted all our lives. At Sumo, the wellbeing of our people has been our focus. Nobody at Sumo has been furloughed or laid off as a result of this pandemic and our support programmes have ensured people have what they need to cope at home either in isolation or with their families. We’ve enabled everyone to continue the work they love through this period and the challenges that has thrown at our feet have made us stronger as a team. 

We’re proud of the accomplishments our people have made during these difficult times. Relying on the pillars and values that define Sumo – Family, Security, Trust, Respect and Determination to name a few – has enabled achievements nobody would have believed possible at the start of 2020. 

Once the pandemic is in our rear-view mirror, our support for remote working will continue. We’re developing programmes and working practices that will support our people long into the future either at home, in the office or a combination of the two. 

Being a part of the Sumo Sheffield family doesn’t have to mean moving to Sheffield anymore. Of course, we’d love to have you here, and if you want to make the move to Sheffield it’s important to us that we offer the levels of support that you and your family would expect during relocation, meaning you can focus on your career and let us worry about the logistics. Equally, if a move isn’t right for you, we can make you feel just as at home in one of our teams from wherever you are in the world.
