Meet the team

Tamara

Head of Localisation

Hi! I am the Head of Localisation at Frontier. I manage our ever-growing Localisation Team, and oversee the localisation of all the games we publish – whether they are developed internally or by our external partners. My team also helps to develop marketing assets, and practically everything to support our global releases!

I joined Frontier in 2015, and over the years I have worked on creating solid processes, implementing robust systems, and building an amazing team to enable us to deliver high-quality text translation and voice recording. I love how integrated localisation has become in our approach to game development, and that delivering a great game enjoyed by players all over the world is a value shared across the company. It is a pleasure to work in an environment where my work is recognised and appreciated, and there are always new challenges to tackle, because no two games are ever the same!

Amy

HR Advisor

I am an HR Advisor and I have been working at Frontier since 2018. Our HR team is made up of two streams, and we each support an area of the business. In our stream I work alongside an HR Assistant, and report into a HR Business Partner. Together we support some of the following teams; Programming, IT, Online, Customer Support, Publishing and Commercial – to name a few. My role is to predominately support these teams with any people-related queries, alongside working on a number of HR related projects.

This is the first games company I have worked for and I felt welcome from the very first day! The best thing about Frontier is the people; you can feel the passion everyone has for what they do. Every person’s contribution is valued no matter what department you work in. It truly is a great place to work!
