C/C++ Game Programmer for Linux/Android

Feral Interactive is looking for programmers with strong C/C++ skills to join our development team. We take pride in publishing AAA games for new platforms and audiences; our releases cover a range of genres and present a variety of challenges in the development process. This role is ideal for those who enjoy low level programming, problem solving and critical thinking, as well as working to serve a discerning and enthusiastic customer base.

The bulk of your work will involve developing games to be cross-platform. This will require you to identify, debug and fix inconsistencies with the originals. You will also need to optimise code for the platform in question, so experience developing for that platform is a great advantage. Our projects tend to be completed relatively quickly within small teams, so the work is highly varied and you will be making a difference every day.

Working with the rest of the development team, you will also help extend our in-house libraries by developing new cross-platform solutions and improving on existing ones, as well as debugging and resolving library issues across multiple games.

We are a small but expanding company with a current team of around eighty, so you’ll quickly get to know your colleagues. You will have the support of our more experienced developers and can look forward to working collaboratively with the team. Our QA team is also onsite, which makes working with them to reproduce and resolve issues quick and efficient. Due to the nature of our work we can maintain a small company attitude with a large company output.

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

Required Skills and Experience

  • Strong C/C++ skills, as demonstrated by code samples or an online portfolio
  • A good degree in a technical discipline or demonstrable development experience
  • Familiarity with Linux, preferably including development of Linux software/systems

Desired Skills and Experience

  • Experience using the UNIX command line
  • Experience of Vulkan, OpenGL or DirectX for 3D graphics programming
  • Experience using CMake, GDB and GCC
  • Good knowledge of Perl, Bash, Python or Lua
  • Prior games development experience utilising low-level programming
  • Experience developing for other platforms or across multiple platforms
  • A passion for video games


  • Annual salary from £24k, dependent on skills and experience
  • Flexitime
  • Relaxed small company atmosphere
  • Regular company dinners and outings
