A little bit about the city: Cambridge 

Known as the home for one of the best and oldest universities in the world, Cambridge is thought of as an attractive place to live, thanks to its historic past and its beautiful scenery. With a thriving tech sector, Cambridge is the place to be if you’re interested in the newest and most exciting tech. As it’s only 50 minutes to central London, Cambridge is a great place to be if you want to pop to the capital to explore. As for getting around the city itself, cycling is a commonly favoured method for locals. According to the council, around a quarter of the residents here choose to cycle on their daily commute, this is made easy by the flat ground and the miles and miles of bike paths spanning the city!

Ryan Templeman

Principal Game Development Consultant & Game Development Team Lead

Ryan leads our dev team, focusing on scouting out the best programmers in the industry! We think he’s working here mostly to get his hands on new Lord of the Rings VR experiences as soon as they come out although, with his level of knowledge, maybe he should be helping make them instead! He is one of the few people on the team that is a born and bred Brightonian. In fact, he has never moved far - to the point where the last time he moved, it was only 2 doors down from his old place!
