Mentioned as one of 27 employers in the 'Small Business' category, the studio, who make racing games for the mobile market, are the only games developer in the overall list.

"The studio has experienced fast-paced growth since just five of us founded the studio back in 2011, growing to a workforce of over 50 car enthusiasts today. We have always strived to make Hutch a special place to work, and making it into the Best Workplaces list is not only a huge honour, but supports the fact that this focus has been felt by our crew.”

Whilst no othe games studios were on the list, tools provider Autodesk also made it in the medium company size category.
