The Degree 53 management team
The UX design and software development agency has taken 6,500 sq ft of two floors within the historic Steam Packet House on Cross Street in the heart of the city centre.
Earlier in February, Degree 53 announced a significant recruitment initiative to support their newly formed gaming division and growing project portfolio.
The team has since taken on 30 new members of staff and this rapid expansion meant the company required a much larger office to house its 75+ team members.
The new office hase been refurbished to provide a collaborative, modern space for the teams, with larger breakout and kitchen areas across the two floors. As a celebration of their core skills, the decor in meeting rooms is inspired by Las Vegas casinos.
Andrew Daniels, managing director at Degree 53 said: “It’s been an exciting year for us in terms of growth and expanding our team with talented individuals.
"The gaming division has been evolving rapidly and we’ve recruited more people than we’d originally planned for. We’ve created brand new positions to bring more structure and additional expertise to support our projects.”
He added: “The new office in Steam Packet House is fantastic and will no doubt inspire more creativity in our team members. There’s enough space for additional hires, as we’re looking to fill a number of positions over the next six months.
"We work with clients and partners from all over the world and being located in the centre of Manchester will make their visits much more convenient.
"We look forward to welcoming them in the new office.“
