Location: Brighton, UK Salary: Negotiable

Job ID: # Posted: 2 years ago

Sumo Digital

Our client has an established reputation as one of the most creative and exciting studios in the UK. They are seen internationally as pioneers of storytelling with a flair for creating atmospheric, rich and imaginative games. Their Playstation 4 exclusive title won major awards across the world. This included an amazing 10 BAFTA nominations and 3 BAFTA wins.

In 2018, they joined one of the UK’s most prolific and secure independent family of studios. This new home will see them bring their passion and commitment to creating exciting original games within a network of studios renowned for quality and expertise. Enabling them to expand and grow in ambition and confidence, taking their reputation for storytelling into new genres. They have already started work on one new title and are in discussions about a significant AAA project.

They’re now looking for experienced programmers to join the team, ready to dive right into working on a brand new title. It’s going to be a relatively small team of under 20 people, so you’re going to be one of those coders who loves getting stuck into everything; who sees tackling a diverse set of problems that range right across the spectrum of game development as a perk of the job.

You’re fast and efficient, not afraid to experiment and work with designers on iterations. You’re a great communicator and love working as part of a team where you play an active role in helping shape the game and its development. Ideally, you’ve had experience as a gameplay programmer, or if not, you’re passionate about getting that into the centre of your skill set.

Skills and Requirements:

  • Expert Proficiency in C/C++
  • Professional experience working in the game industry
  • Experience in PC and/or console programming
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Excellent debugging and optimisation skills
  • Practical experience with 3D math
  • Worked on at least 2 shipped games
  • Experience with asset pipelines dealing with large scale data sets
  • Experience working on at least one large scale game project


The studio are able to offer a super benefits package including generous holidays, flexitime and excellent employee benefits. Further perks include their annual Big Day Out, plus epic Christmas parties, money on your birthday and free fruit for everyone! Their new, regular studio Game Jams are a highlight – staff spend a full day developing and pitching their own game ideas for possible development.

The environment is relaxed, friendly and built upon the basis of every team member having the opportunity to shine and have a realisable input into the games we create. They’re located in Brighton, the best city in the south of England and not just a home to an amazingly vibrant game development scene, but a cultural hotspot with fantastic food, arts, music, shopping and sports. The studio is directly opposite a gorgeous park and only a short hop from the city centre, the beach, and the South Downs National Park. Gatwick Airport is half an hour away from train, and you can be in central London in just over an hour. It’s an easy place to love!
