Role and Purpose
Sumo Digital's placement scheme is open to promising Games Programming/Development/Computer Science undergraduates at any UK university who require an industrial placement in their third year.
The scheme offers a fantastic opportunity for talented students who are committed to improving their skills by spending one year working as games programmers on our live projects. We value highly the contribution that exceptional, undergraduate raw talent can bring to our studio and many placement students have returned to work for us permanently after graduation.
Applicants must have a passion for games programming and be working towards a 1st classification in their studies with good examples of their own work in C++ to show.
Placements will run from September 2018- September 2019 (with some flexibility) and there are opportunities at both our Sheffield and Nottingham studios. We will also consider applications from those looking for shorter undergraduate placements (20-40 weeks) from February 2018 and applications of this nature will be processed before January 2018. Please state clearly on your application the start and end dates required for your placement.
Closing date for applications: Friday 23rd February 2018. Interviews will be held in March/April 2018 and placements awarded in May/June 2018.
