Double Eleven Team Profiles
Everybody is extremely talented and friendly and we all work really well together, creating a very productive yet relaxed environment. I came here straight from university and since starting I've gained a huge amount of experience across a wide range of platforms and technologies. We work with pretty much every modern console platform on the market. The work we do here at Double Eleven tends to be very technical and demanding; it's the place to be if you like a challenge.
Everyday is fun! The enthusiasm each and every one of the team displays is incredibly infectious. It doesn't fail to rub off on you. Cakes...there's lots of cakes. As a parent, the flexibility means I can drop my little one at school every day, which is super important to me. What's not to like about being off on your birthday?! In the 24 years I've been in the industry, I've not worked with a better team of people. Just the best, plain and simple.
Calling Double Eleven a team feels like an injustice, it's more like an extended family! Everybody gets on really well, people often plan social get-togethers outside of work and it's definitely the most positive, honest and enjoyable office I've ever worked in. There's always somebody around to support you if you need help. No two days are the same and there's always a new and exciting challenge around the corner!
I can't think of any other company where within six years of starting, I would have had such influence on as many finely crafted and beloved properties. Being able to look behind the curtain and see the internal workings of other successful titles has been a fantastic learning experience. This has helped greatly with the development of our own internal projects which I have been very privileged to be a part of.
Middlesbrough is right in the ‘middle’ of Teesside and the wider Tees Valley. It’s at the heart of everything – roads, rivers, countryside and between two of the North’s great historic destinations, Durham and Whitby.
Shops, Restaurants & Nightlife
Shops, restaurants and nightlife are fab in Middlesbrough. It’s the Tees Valley’s High Street capital. Baker Street is Middlesbrough’s hub of independent retailers, cafes, salons, micro pubs and more, and there are lots of other independents sprinkled throughout the town too. Home-grown designer department store Psyche regularly rubs shoulders with the likes of Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, having won awards such as the number one store in the FHM 100 Doors awards and Drapers’ Independent Retailer of the Year.
Events, Arts & Culture
A lively events programme and Middlesbrough’s emerging cultural renaissance reflect the town’s ongoing passion for live entertainment, art and music. Middlesbrough’s Town Hall and Theatre boast a rich programme of comedy, music, drama and dance. While mima Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art hosts a rolling exhibition programme of international significance. Middlesbrough’s popular events calendar includes diverse events such as Middlesbrough Mela, Christmas festivities & Animex – an annual, international animation festival.
If you’re new to the area, start off with the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum. It celebrates the life of the town’s most famous descendant and is set in the locally-loved green surroundings of Stewart Park. (Note: the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum is closed during the winter season.) The Dorman Museum and the Tees Transporter Bridge are also worth a visit, especially if the kids are in tow.
Middlesbrough isn’t all bustle and built up town. It’s right next to the North York Moors, the Cleveland Way and one of the North East’s most famous landmarks, Roseberry Topping. Roseberry Topping’s 360 degree views are so spectacular that the Vikings originally named it after their god Odin.
Forget all your preconceptions of industry; you won’t see a skyline like this anywhere else. “Teesside Lights”, Middlesbrough’s industrial landscape, is an extraordinary man made sight. In fact it was the inspiration for Ridley Scott’s Bladerunner, who was born in nearby North Shields.
Middlesbrough is ambitious about the future, particularly digital technology. Teesside University and local businesses have established a world-wide reputation for digital innovation and animation wizardry. Look out for Animex, a yearly animation festival that attracts global stars. In recent years, over £500m has been invested in Middlesbrough, bringing opportunities for education, leisure and more.
