Sumo Digital is one of the UK's most prolific and secure independent game developers with a talented team of over 280 staff currently based in Sheffield. A second UK studio in Nottingham opened in March 2016 and has rapidly grown to a 45 strong team with many fantastic new opportunities on the horizon.
Since our inception in 2003 we have had a string of successful titles across all gaming platforms for partners that include Microsoft, SEGA, Sony, Disney and many more.
Our most recent successes include Forza Horizon 2 (Xbox 360), LittleBigPlanet 3 (PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3), Disney Infinity 3.0 Toy Box Speedway (multi-platform), and our first self-published title Snake Pass (multi-platform). We are also incredibly proud to be working on the highly anticipated Crackdown 3 (Xbox One) and Dead Island 2 (multi-platform) plus several other exciting but yet unannounced projects.
2017 will be Sumo’s biggest and best year ever. Come and be part of it.
We will consider Freelance/Contractor proposals for many of the Art and Animation requirements at our studios (Sheffield and Nottingham). If you wish to be considered for any of these opportunities please do apply here.
We prefer our contractors to work 100% on-site, however, some part remote and fully remote working can be accommodated if you are able to visit the studio periodically during your assignment.
Please upload your application stating in your cover email which kind of work and on what basis you are seeking, along with details of your rates and showreel/CV.
We will keep your details on file and may occasionally send you notifications about upcoming contractor opportunities.
