We’re currently looking for Senior & Lead programmers to join not only a great studio, but great friends of ours, to work on their next big AAA title in Newcastle!

The studio have a host of impressive partners that they work with including Microsoft, Sega, Sony, Disney and many more. Looking down the road they have several exciting but unannounced projects that they are working on (all very hush hush!) but we can share that they are incredibly proud to be working on the highly anticipated Crackdown 3 (Xbox One), Dead Island 2 (multi-platform), Project Nova (PC) and Team Sonic Racing (multi-platform).

As a growing development studio they are looking to add talented developers to their AAA projects across Xbox, PS4, Switch and PC. If you are an experienced programmer, we would love to hear from you!

  • Helping the UI designers to understand the engineering implications of their designs.
  • working within existing UI framework,
  • You will be creating and extending UI tools and systems as appropriate for the task in hand. 
  • You will assist project managers with estimation and task scheduling.  

So, why should you apply? 

You’ll enjoy tons of benefits like generous holidays, flexitime and excellent employee benefits. Some of the bigger perks include a Big Day Out, plus epic Christmas parties, money on your birthday and free fruit for everyone! And if you like getting stuck into game jams, you can participate in a jam they hold where the staff spend a full day developing and pitching their own game ideas for possible development by the studio. 

Here are the skills you’ll need…

  • Strong C++ programming skills
  • Previous experience developing in-game UI and/or frontend features
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Worked on at least one released game

  • Experience developing custom UI solutions

Keep Calm and waka waka...
