Tech Recruitment: Diversity in Gaming Industry

Tech Recruitment and the Agile Approach: Embracing Diversity in Gaming


In the fast-paced world of tech recruitment, finding the perfect fit goes beyond technical skills—it’s about understanding the company’s values, culture, and the importance of diversity. Simon Taylor, our senior tech recruiter specialising in the gaming industry, shares firsthand insights into the value of embracing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion.

When looking for candidates for gaming studios, Simon emphasizes soft skills and personality traits that match the company’s values. Instead of just looking at technical abilities, he prefers individuals who offer diverse perspectives and experiences.


Global GamingTalent: Leveling Up Our Hiring Approach

In building a team for a gaming studio, Simon challenges the status quo by advocating for diversity in backgrounds, ages, and cultures. 

“People play games worldwide, and we should hire in the same manner.” 

By incorporating individuals with different backgrounds, the team fosters a more dynamic and innovative environment, driving creativity and problem-solving.



The gaming industry’s global reach means talent can come from anywhere in the world, making it inherently international. With people from diverse socio-economic backgrounds and cultures coming together to create games, the industry thrives on collaboration and diverse perspectives.


While the gaming industry has made strides in embracing diversity, there’s still work to be done, particularly in increasing gender diversity. By championing diversity in recruitment efforts, we can create a more inclusive industry that reflects the diverse gaming community worldwide.


As we continue to navigate the evolving landscape of tech recruitment in the gaming industry, let’s remember the power of diversity in driving innovation and shaping the future of gaming. Together, we can build teams that not only excel technically but also represent the rich tapestry of humanity.
