Growing and operating a video game studio is both one of the most rewarding and one of the most challenging endeavors. Recruiting the right talent in a competitive pool, and then providing that talent with the right tools and structure is something crucial to studios, but often something that requires expertise that founders don’t have, and simply don’t have the bandwidth to learn from scratch.
Enter TEKsystems Global Services, the biggest-company-you-don’t-talk-about-at-the-water-cooler, who quietly provides technology, business and talent solutions for more than 80% of the Fortune 500, and supports most of the blue chip client names we all recognize in the gaming space.
Today, they’re announcing support for the AWS for Games initiative from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
