Following on from their successful expansion to a team of 60 in the last 12 months, game developers DIGIT continue to expand their workforce with the announcement of 20 new positions to develop games for AAA Hollywood titles
Dublin, Ireland, September 13th, 2016: DIGIT Game Studios, Ireland’s largest game developer, has launched an international recruitment drive to attract top tier talent as they become a top ten European studio by the start of 2017.
After an extremely successful recruitment campaign last year which saw them triple their staff numbers, DIGIT now employs over 60 people at their Dublin studio and is now looking to scale immediately following their partnership with L.A. based touchscreen entertainment network and mobile game publisher Scopely.
Working in conjunction with Scopely, with whom they’ve signed a multiple-game publishing deal, DIGIT continue to work on their extremely successful cross-platform MMO, Kings of the Realm, and a yet to be released game for a AAA Hollywood franchise.
“We have attracted some of the best game developers in the world to DIGIT thanks to the quality of life on offer for families here and the chance to work on a major title.” said Richard Barnwell, founder and CEO, DIGIT Game Studios. “We are starting to attract even more European talent from the UK as uncertainty surrounds key executives who are trying to plan for a long term future for their families. Young coders can pack and go but experienced leaders need stability to commit to a country. Working for DIGIT offers that right now, especially for European talent.”
Om Tandon, who recently joined DIGIT as their new Director of User Experience had this to say, ” Moving all the way from New Zealand was a big decision for me and my family, but DIGIT made the transition a breeze, supporting it in every way possible. What I found here is, a highly talented pool of seasoned professionals from across the world. Who have extremely high standards for what they are trying to achieve, hungry for growth and ambitious, but our top management is always concerned and making sure this vision of growth, success and quality is not at the cost of their employees, one of the few studios I have worked in where HR and founders go out of their way to ensure good work/life balance with industry standard perks & benefits is maintained and remains vital to the core of DIGIT’s DNA.”
