Game Developer (12-month placement)

We’re offering year-long industrial placements to university students currently studying Computer Science or a related degree.

Our game developer placements involve working on real game code: you’ll be porting top PC and console releases to Mac, Linux or mobile platforms. You’ll also help to develop our in-house tools and support the overall development process.

You’ll be working on the same projects as our graduate developers, and will work directly with them and our experienced programmers, gaining valuable experience in games development. This includes getting familiar with the development cycle, bug tracking and working with a QA team.

We like to see students who’ve gone beyond the requirements of their course: we’re happy to look at examples of your own projects and code, so feel free to include them with your application.

This is a 12-month, full-time industrial placement based in our offices in London, UK.
