06/02/18

Taking on a new opportunity in the industry can open a door to the job of your dreams. 

We catch up with one of our recent career movers at the start of their exciting new role through Team Amiqus.
 
Name: Max DeVries
Studio: Supermassive Games
Job Title: Senior Producer
Education: MSC Computer Science, UCL

Congratulations on the amazing new job! What inspired you about Supermassive Games to come and join them?

I had been impressed by the quality of the games they produce, particularly Until Dawn and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. Once I met them I was impressed by the energy and vision of the management team and the quality of the developers. I was very pleased to hear that they saw a focus on quality as consistent with a focus on efficiency. 



Tell us a few highlights about the project you’re working on (if you can!)

I am working on an unannounced project, so I can’t say much. The highlight for me has been my new team. Their experience, drive, enthusiasm and sense of fun is inspiring.

What are you most excited about bringing to the role?

Given my very international perspective I am enjoying bringing my experience to a British developer with a diverse staff. Having worked at companies large and small, in internal development and external development, I bring a breadth of experience about the whole lifecycle of making a game for many different sectors. I am keen to pair my track record of success with Supermassive’s own great track record. 

What will working at Supermassive Games do for your career?
Supermassive is a leading player in narrative-driven games and VR. Working here is giving me exposure to these innovative segments and I’m feeling very positive about the future of both. It’s exciting times at Supermassive and I’m delighted to be part of it. 

What’s the culture like at Supermassive and what’s your experience been like fitting in?

Supermassive does a good job at keeping the entrepreneurial feel of a start up with its quick reactions and minimal hierarchy. It has a focus on excellence that resonates with everyone and it manages to provide the systems, cross team co-operation and tools of a larger company. I felt at home from day one, and have been pleased at how my ideas from other projects have been given consideration

What would you like to say to anyone thinking about/undertaking a job move?

Understand your motivation, always move for positive reasons, and do the research. If you choose to partner with an agency in your search, make it one who will understands your goals and USPs, and will help you to focus on the best opportunities.
