C/C++ Cross Platform Game Programmer

Feral Interactive is looking for talented graduates with a bias towards low-level technical programming to join our outstanding team targeting desktop, mobile and console game projects.

We specialise in bringing AAA games to new platforms and audiences by integrating them perfectly into the target operating systems: our releases cover a range of genres and present a variety of programming challenges. While prior professional experience is not required, you will need to be comfortable working in C/C++ and using pointers and memory allocation. You can expect some extremely challenging problems to solve, both individually and as part of a team.

Our ideal candidate will relish the opportunities offered to improve their programming skills and make significant contributions to the games we release. We are particularly interested in people who can show they have the potential to develop and the desire to advance.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference from your first day and to be involved with shipping great games on a regular basis, working with talented co-workers and industry-leading partners in a stimulating and friendly collegiate atmosphere.

Feel free to include a link to your portfolio or GitHub in your application; we are always happy to look at code samples.

If you are approaching graduation, you may apply at any point during your final year: the start date is flexible, so you can line up a graduate position before you become too busy with finals!

This is a permanent, full time position at our studio in Wandsworth, southwest London.
