Careers

Sumo Pune 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.


The experience of establishing and growing a Studio in Pune has been a fantastic journey.  Starting out with a handful people in 2007, the Sumo Pune team is now home to some of the most creative and talented Indian game development professionals. 

The passion to create new and enjoyable game experiences for players runs deep across the art, engineering, design, and QA teams at Sumo Pune. This along with a work and life balance that is equal parts focus, collaboration and fun has now become the team’s culture. 

Sumo Pune has contributed significantly in producing console games on current and next-gen platforms, mobile/smart devices across all genres including first/third action/shooters, Racing, Adventure, Sports etc. Some of our successes include BAFTA Award winning Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Hood: Outlaws & Legends, Hotshot Racing, Forza Horizon series, Crackdown 3, Snake pass and Hitman 2.
