Founded in 1994 and now based in East London's booming technology hub at Here East in Stratford, SI, as a continually successful and profitable company, is now looking to expand its full-time staff as it pushes out across both existing and emerging gaming platforms.
SI’s games have enjoyed an unparalleled history of commercial and critical success, with 12 of its creations among the UK's Top 20 fastest-selling PC games of all time and five in the UK’s top 20 best-selling PC games of all time. Sports Interactive became a wholly owned subsidiary of SEGA in 2006.The studio is a vibrant environment, full of talented and dedicated people with drive, passion and creativity, who enjoy working within a close-knit team as part of a lively, self-motivated and forward thinking company.
Sports Interactive looks after its staff’s well-being with a flexible working schedule that makes the studio a relaxed and friendly place to work (there are six staff lunchtime football teams and a wide range of regular social events). We’re also very proud of being parent-friendly and having high staff tenure (40% have worked here for over 10 years). Further information on Sports Interactive and its games is available on the SI website, www.sigames.com.
Working in the commercial team at Sports Interactive, this role reports to Head of Strategic Business Development and will work closely with the Studio Director and COO as well as with colleagues at SEGA HQ. This is a varied role in a regularly changing industry for an organised, reliable individual.

It will suit a “completer finisher” who takes great pride is seeing a job done well.
The ideal candidate will have at least 4 years of experience in an operational/administrative or account management in a commercial area related to football, sports or data industries. Experience in media sales/mobile advertising is helpful but not essential.
This new role will evolve with our business and opportunities – so you will be able to make it what it needs to be and to take on more responsibility over time. This role is mainly office based at Here East in Stratford with regular London client meetings. Limited long-distance travel expected.
