Experienced 3D Graphics Programmer
Feral Interactive is looking for skilled developers with demonstrable experience in 3D graphics programming for games to join our core 3D development team.
This is a technically challenging, library based role, ideal for those who like working with shaders and graphics drivers and solving complex problems. To demonstrate this, you can include a link to your personal portfolio or GitHub in your application, and we’re always happy to look at code samples, too.
You will take responsibility for significant areas of our code base primarily focussed on the 3D graphics elements. These might be developed from scratch to fulfil the needs of a specific game or you could take over existing code to enhance or further develop it. Visual correctness and performance are both vital and you will need to be familiar with techniques for achieving both.
This is a permanent, full time position at our office in Wandsworth, southwest London.
