Anyone know where this new racing studio of sega’s is going in the midlands? They seem to be advertising alot about it on various websites.

Currently in Solihull, but might possibly be Leamington or Coventry when they expand the team.

Ya its solihull alright.
Nah just wondered a buddy of mine landed an interview with them for a grad job. Sounds like a good opportunity.

I know a lot of the people working there, and I would highly recommend them on an individual basis. What it is like to work there…well they seem to like it, but they haven’t gone through a full dev cycle yet.
The office may well move to Leamington at some point when the team expands, but solihull is only a short distance anyway and it is quite a nice town.

I have an artist mate who really wants to go there (who doesnt :p) they only seem to only be wanting coders at the moment though?
I heard they were moving to Leamington Spa aswell, apparently the proposed location is molto expensive.
I am very very confused why they dont set up in manchester – its a great city, its got talented people there and no probs attracting new staff to move there..
I need to use search engines to find Leamington spa..Why is it always these bizzare locations…jesus pick a proper city…a company like sega can afford it.
Sorry, I have phobias of small places nowadays…

There are definitely some artist jobs there, but there will probably be more as they grow.
The reason for leamington has a lot to do with the fact that most of the core staff live here, having previously worked for another major developer in the area.
There are at least 5 other games companies in the town, and a history of development going back to the birth of the industry……

Meant to be a nice place with alot of experience staff. current numbers are low but that is about to change apparently by quite a number. guess its solihull because alot of the staff are ex-codemasters, which is in leamington spas and they dont want to move away immediately, also around the birmingham area.
