Amiqus

We started Amiqus back in 2000, with a mission to take our love of the games industry and combine it with our experience in recruitment to help more people find the right job, at the right time. So armed with bags of enthusiasm, and truck loads of coffee, we got cracking building relationships, creating networks and defining our own unique approach to recruitment. 

17 years on and we’re pretty chuffed that we’re in a position to connect skilled and passionate candidates with the right studios in the gaming industry who share their values and vision. 

Gamer Network

Gamer Network was founded in 1999 by brothers Rupert and Nick Loman.

Prior to founding the company, the brothers played a lot of network and online games like Duke Nukem 3D and Quake II, and their love for competitive multiplayer video games led them to organise their own events.

After realising they were better at organising than competing, they decided to create an online games business together with friends from the gaming community. Several years after that (paying the bills by designing websites and game middleware) they decided to focus purely on games media.
