C/C++ Cross Platform Game Programmer
Feral Interactive is looking for talented programmers to join our outstanding game development team. We take great pride in developing superb versions of the best games that the industry has to offer and integrating them perfectly into the target operating systems.
We have vacancies at all levels of the software development stack, so whether you prefer to work on the low level internals of game engines and graphics APIs or focus on fine tuning a UI for that perfect user experience, we have some fantastic challenges for you. You’ll be working with great games, talented co-workers and industry-leading partners in a stimulating and friendly collegiate atmosphere.
For the more technical roles you will need demonstrable experience of working in C/C++ and using pointers and memory allocation as you will be using those language features on a daily basis. You can expect some extremely challenging problems to solve, both individually and as part of a team.
The higher-level roles will work closely with Feral’s design team to ensure that the user experience is as perfectly polished. Your insights and rapid prototyping will help drive the design of some of the best AAA games ever brought to mobile platforms.
Our ideal candidate will relish the opportunities offered to improve their programming skills and make significant contributions to the games we release. While prior professional experience is not required, we are particularly interested in people who can show they have the potential to develop rapidly and the desire to advance quickly.
Please include a link to your portfolio or GitHub in your application.
This is a permanent, full time position at our studio in Wandsworth, southwest London.
