The role @ Sumo

Sumo Leamington is looking for a talented UX Designer to join our talented design team!


Within this role you will:


  • Be a pivotal role that bridges the gap between design, concept and UI whilst constantly striving to put a 'player' first experience.
  • An information architect collaborating with systems and game designs to present information and data to our players in an easy to digest manner.
  • Responsible for guiding the player through the games journey and meta. Teaching them how it works and helping them explore and engage with the world and systems.
  • Promoting the games monetization systems whilst driving healthy engagement.
  • Acting as a communication corner stone between all studio disciplines whilst constantly exploring and refining the game flow to overcome our daily challenges.
  • Always thinking about how we can be better.



  • We need you to have:


  • An ability to quickly develop ideas as sketches, wireframes and interactive prototypes.
  • Experience in user testing, player analysis and iteration.
  • Previous mobile game development experience. (experience in free-to-play a bonus).
  • Demonstrate a clear understand of mobile game interaction and behaviours within any given target audience or demographic.
  • Technical knowledge of wireframe packes such as Adobe XD, Sketch or Axure. (Knowledge of XHTML, Javascript, CSS, C# a bonus)
  • Familiar with mobile game design and the performance constraints of modern mobile devices.
  • An open approach to collaboration and feedback from others.
  • Excellent communication skills never afraid to ask questions.


  • As part of the Sumo Digital family, we're able to offer a super benefits package including generous holidays and flexible working hours. Further perks include our legendary annual Sumo Big Day Out, plus epic Christmas parties, vouchers on your birthday and free fruit for everyone! Our new, regular studio Game Jams are a highlight - staff spend a full day developing and pitching their own game ideas for possible development by Sumo (this led to the recently released Snake Pass, so it's a genuine commitment to allowing staff to pitch ideas upwards to the highest levels).

    Our environment is relaxed, friendly and built upon the basis of every team member having the opportunity to shine and have a realisable input into the games we create. We're in the amazing position of building a brand new team, and creating a studio culture that's all about passion, respect, diversity, fun and togetherness. We're looking for people that love what they do and love to share their enthusiasm with each other.



    Keep Calm and waka waka...
