Double Eleven will be attending Develop Liverpool 2010. Lee, Matt and myself (Olly) will be there to get the latest from the talks and panels and to look for more outstanding talent. We’re still on an employment drive, so hand over a business card if you’re interested in joining our team.
New Jobs Available at Double Eleven
We are now looking for talented Artists, Programmers and QA Testers with proven track records.
Our ever-expanding roster of coders has been increased with the addition of Rod Boyd. Our new ‘Codesmith’ started his days coding submarine sonar systems for the military before starting in the games industry at Rare. Moving on to Xbox Live Studios after, Rod now joins us with his combined eleven years experience. We’re sure he’s going to be a significant hand in our future work. Welcome aboard, Mr. Boyd.
We’ve just hired Steve Wilson, an exceptionally skilled network programmer. Steve has been dabbling in network programming all his life but joins us with time at Rockstar, Venom and SimBin/Blimeygames under his belt. Steve is a massive talent and we’re delighted to have him on the team. Welcome aboard, Mr. Wilson.
New Employee – Kim Turner
Double Eleven is happy to now be at the size where we feel it’s time to delegate our accountancy to a dedicated member of staff. And who better than Kimberley Turner ACA, a fully qualified Chartered Accountant, who just so happens to be Lee’s younger sister! Kim joins us with fifteen months experience as Group Financial Accountant at Hargreaves Services PLC and five years prior within Accountancy Practice. She will be taking over the money side, HR and sorting all our policies and procedures. Things are getting serious here at Double Eleven! Welcome aboard, Mrs T.
New Employee – Olly Bennett
After working with us through his own company as a contract tester, Double Eleven have now offered Oliver Bennett a full-time job as Producer and Test Lead. His great work on a small EA Mobile project (our Skate It update for EA’s iPhone SKU) was enough to convince us we wanted him on our team permanently. We’re looking forward to watching Olly grow into a more experienced Producer with us. Welcome aboard, Mr. Bennett.
Double Eleven have moved into the spectacular new BoHo One office block in the heart of Middlesbrough’s ‘Digital City’. These modern new offices boast unique architecture and high-tech fixtures and fittings. We’re looking forward to being fully set-up and working from these new offices. Feel free to come and visit and let us know what you think.
New Employee – Aidan Howe
Double Eleven welcomes Aidan Howe into our ever-expanding team. After working with Lee in the past, we knew he’d be perfect for the job. Taking on the role of Producer, Aidan also possesses design experience from his time working on The Outside at Frontier and other projects at Kuju Chemistry. He also has advanced IT knowledge and considerable QA experience. We’re certain he’ll quickly prove a boon to our company in multiple fields. Welcome aboard, Mr. Howe.
Mick Waites joins the Double Eleven team as an additional coder. Mick’s experience spans many genres and projects within multiple studios. With names like RuneCraft and The Code Monkeys decorating his CV, we’re sure his expertise will go a long way to help our existing team. Welcome aboard, Mr. Waites.
