The development team at Grasp, headed up by Brian Jobling, will now join the Durham-based Atom family and bring with them a wealth of experience working with some of the biggest consumer brands in the world including projects with F1, NASCAR, MTV and James Bond.
Edward Twiddy, Atom’s Chief Innovations Officer said: “Our first conversations with Brian about what gaming and the North East development industry could offer started in the spring of 2014 when Atom was just an idea.
“Now on the cusp of going live and after several months of testing, we are bringing some of the best in digital design and development into the heart of the family.”
The move will bring together user-interface expertise from the banking industry with experience from the video games industry to create a unique user experience.
Brian, who will now become business development manager at Atom, stated: “Atom Bank is one of the most exciting projects in the North East and my passion for the region meant myself and the team couldn’t possibly turn down the opportunity to work with Atom longer term.
An amazing development environment has already been created at Atom and it’s great to be part of a business with such enthusiasm and drive.
Atom is rapidly expanding its development team and there isn’t a better place for top quality developers to hone their trade.”
