Culture and benefits

Sumo Pune is made up of a diverse mix of fantastic people and we welcome applications from under-represented people in the gaming industry, including, but not limited to BAME, LGBQT+, 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.

"My interview process was conducted in two steps, I was given an assignment and another round of face-to-face screening via Skype with Senior Art Manager & Production Head. The interview was quite fruitful, and I had a great discussion with the panel"

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 amazing 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, so far including Snake Pass and the upcoming Spyder for Apple Arcade.

"The Sumo team has been exceptionally supportive in these trying times and has gone above and beyond with helping us during the transition to working from home. They have prioritised both our physical and mental health throughout."
