"Amiqus have been pivotal in the recent growth at Maze Theory from 2021 through to 2022 assisting with the identification and attraction of 7 new significant hires for the team, all under pressure of continuing pandemic conditions and in tight timescales. Not only have they helped us find a CEO who is going to spearhead a new business for us they have now recently helped us secure a CTO and Studio Design Director for that entity.
We’re a small team at Maze and the team at Amiqus have operated like a dedicated internal recruitment function for us and helped us to speed up our recruitment processes and raised our profile in the market - which has helped us to secure staff we never thought we could dream of hiring. Long may it continue."
Russ Harding, Studio Director – Maze Theory
"Having worked with Amiqus for over a decade I can vouch for their professionalism and ability to deliver. They pay particular attention to understanding the needs of the client, the culture of the business and the nuance of the role, project or team before embarking on any talent search. High on the list of priorities is positive candidate experience which is a barometer we share for a successful recruitment process.
Liz and her team are a talented bunch and I envisage we will continue to work with them for many years to come."
Tamsin O’Luanaigh – Founder and Chief People Officer, nDreams
"I’ve known Stig and Amiqus now for over 15 years. They have helped secure roles for me at some of the most prestigious studios here in the UK including the likes of Electronic Arts, Rebellion and Remedy in Europe. When I consider a career move, they are my only go to Recruitment Partners.
Amiqus were also instrumental in helping me to make my relocation from the US to the UK, which at the time was a huge move for me and my family. They ensured that the transition was as smooth as possible and kept me updated all the way through the process.
If you are an Executive in the Games industry, Amiqus are well placed to manage your next move, they’re well networked and have a deep knowledge and understanding of what studios need. Simply put they are the best in the industry."
Ralph Palmer, Animation Director, Supermassive
“Amiqus have been an incredible asset to myself and DIGIT over the years. They have introduced us to some of our most senior and influential team members, and they constantly live up to their reputation of being the top recruitment agency in the industry. When I started in the Games industry, Amiqus were constantly (and still are) an incredible source of industry knowledge and would always give a helping hand, to no benefit of their own. They care a lot about their clients, and build fantastic relationships, they are a testament to everything this industry stands for!”

“I’ve worked a lot with Amiqus over the years, from my time at big companies like Sony, to our start-up Maze Theory now. And I’ve found that, regardless of how big or small the company is, the team at Amiqus devotes the same amount of time and attention to us. As a start-up, Amiqus has found ways to help and support us in finding and growing talent. We’ve worked with a lot of recruitment companies and Amiqus really stands out in terms of ensuring they understand our games, our company and our culture.”

“Amiqus have been a trusted resource for many years in my career as a AAA art director. They have the best worldwide network of contacts and a deep understanding of the games industry that sets them apart from all other companies. Amiqus staff have a high level of professionalism and always make sure the role fits the candidate. The fact that they take the time to consult with every individual on a personal level makes them the best organization to partner with “
F. Kitson, Studio Art Director
“I have worked with Amiqus for many years now and have found them to be an excellent, reliable and dedicated partner in my role as Creative Director at previous studios and, most recently, with our new publishing label start-up. I have engaged with many recruitment companies but I strongly feel that Amiqus have the best worldwide network of contacts and a deep understanding of the games industry. What really sets them apart, in my opinion, is that they deeply care about each candidate. Amiqus is not just trying to close a deal, they specifically try to find the right person for the role in question. I have been a candidate with Amiqus and a partner in need of hiring, and I can attest to their attention to detail when it comes to selecting candidates and also the aftercare they provide. Communication with them is easy, quick and thorough. In short: Amiqus are simply fantastic to work with.”
Andreas Gschwari, CCO, Modern Wolf Limited
“Amiqus staff presented me with a number of well suited and attractive creative leadership roles. Their approach is professional and well informed with a thorough understanding of the industry and the roles presented, this helps to quickly establish a relationship of trust and confidence. Based on their reputation and my recent experience with Amiqus I would happily continue to work with their staff in the future. As someone who generally prefers to work directly with developers, Amiqus are one of the few agencies I would choose to work with and feel confident with.”
