Role and Purpose

Sumo's placement scheme is open to promising Games Programming/Development/Computer Science undergraduates at any UK university who require an industrial placement in their third year.


The scheme offers a fantastic opportunity for talented students who are committed to improving their skills by spending one year working as games programmers on our live projects. We value highly the contribution that exceptional, undergraduate raw talent can bring to our studio and many placement students have returned to work for us permanently after graduation.

Placements will run from September 2017- September 2018 (with some flexibility) and there are opportunities at both our Sheffield and Nottingham studios.


Closing date for applications: Friday 20th January 2017. Interviews will be held in February 2017 and placements awarded in March 2017.
