We trust people to do what they’re good at, this is when we get the best results.
Who are we?
Team17 is proud to be part of a fast-growing network of games studios in the UK’s northern regions. We’re based in Wakefield, Manchester, and Nottingham, and we’re actively hiring across all three locations as we continue to expand our ground-breaking games label.
Read on to find out more about our different locations below.
Based in West Yorkshire, our Wakefield studio is the largest development site in the Team17 family. Boasting award winning games that span the last 30 years, the creative expertise within these walls offer some of the greatest diversity in genre, platform, and scale that the games industry can offer. Providing both ingrained experience and expertise to our indie partners while also developing world-class IPs of our own, Team17 Wakefield is a cornerstone of indie development, encapsulating the spirit of indie games.
Set in the modern development of Media City in Salford Quays, our Manchester studio is award-winning and growing fast. Led by Mike Delves, former Managing Director of Yippee! Entertainment and a true games industry veteran, this studio is expanding, with exciting times ahead.
Having opened in 2014, our Nottingham office is the publishing hub for our world-class games label. Working alongside our studios in Wakefield and Manchester, this is where we discover new games for our label, and where our expert marketing and commercial teams take progressive, quality games to market, offering players and developers the best indie gaming experiences possible.

“Nobody is a small cog in a big machine here. Everyone makes a valuable contribution to the creation of a game and the variety of the work coming from the label means you are likely to work on a number of titles and genres in a relatively short space of time”
“The new studio in Wakefield is really cool! It has soul, and feels more like a game studio, so the move has given everyone a real boost.”
“The TEC team gives us a voice and an influence in decisions about how the company is run day-to-day, for example how the new Wakefield studio was designed, and the creation of gender neutral bathrooms”
“I’ve been with Team17 since the very beginning when we’d be packing games in the warehouse ready for posting out to people. Seeing how far this company has come to date is phenomenal and incredibly inspiring”
“This is an environment where you can not only have your voice heard but also properly listened to. The LGBTQ+ network at Team17 has really grown because of this, and we’re now starting to make our voices heard outside the company too.”
“I joined last year and wasn’t expecting it to be so social. I’ve probably made more friends here than I did at university!”
We have a number of opportunities available across our Studio, Publishing and Support teams.
