Hear from some of our recent graduates about what it’s like to work at Bede…..

“I joined Bede Gaming as a Junior Developer right after my Masters Degree from Newcastle University and have been here for just over a year. The experience working at Bede has been immense as we try to be ahead or up to date with the current technology out in the market. The work culture in Bede has been excellent with a lot of guidance and help from the senior devs. One thing I like about working here is that you are always involved in finding solutions to difficult but interesting problems and things keep evolving to achieve the best. As a result, it has helped me get to a level of a senior developer very quickly and gain a more responsible role within Bede.”
