Sumo Digital

Sumo Digital’s Nottingham studio was established in 2016 to broaden the expertise of the Group and the catchment area for new staff. It follows the established Sumo Digital values of versatility, creativity, reliability and quality. However, it broadly functions under its own independent remit, while working collaboratively to achieve the shared goals, responsibilities and expectations of the wider Sumo Group. Nottingham currently employs more than 80 people across multiple projects.
