Degree 53 moves to new HQ as headcount exceeds 75
Design and software development agency Degree 53 has moved to a new HQ in the historic Steam Packet House in Manchester as it continues to expand.
In February, the agency announced a recruitment drive to support their newly-formed gaming division and growing project portfolio. During the year, more than 30 new staff have been recruited, taking the headcount to more than 75.
The new offices have been refurbished to provide a collaborative, modern space for the teams, with larger breakout and kitchen areas across two floors. As a celebration of their core skills, the decor in meeting rooms is inspired by Las Vegas casinos. Degree 53 was previously based at The Sharp Project.
MD Andrew Daniels said: “It’s been an exciting year for us in terms of growth and expanding our team with talented individuals. The gaming division has been evolving rapidly and we’ve recruited more people than we’d originally planned for. We’ve created brand new positions to bring more structure and additional expertise to support our projects.
“The new office in Steam Packet House is fantastic and will no doubt inspire more creativity in our team members. There’s enough space for additional hires, as we’re looking to fill a number of positions over the next six months.
“We work with clients and partners from all over the world and being located in the centre of Manchester will make their visits much more convenient. We look forward to welcoming them in the new office."
