The team behind the award-winning official FORMULA 1 videogame series are on the look-out for a talented Graduate Programmer. Based at our state-of-the-art studio in Birmingham city centre, (the UK’s second largest city and interestingly it has more canals than Venice!), the successful applicant will get the chance to work alongside and learn from some of the industry’s best talent.
As a game programmer you’ll be responsible for making exciting gameplay features come to life and as we transition to the next generation of console development and technology, we have even more ambitious plans for this massively successful franchise!
We are looking for individuals with a strong working knowledge of programming languages, in particular C++. You will have a passion for the games industry and it would be great if you have an interest in motorsport, however this is not essential. If this is you and you are currently looking for your chance to work in AAA game development for one of the oldest and most recognised developers (and publisher) in the world, then look no further.
Here's what we need you to be able to do:
Work closely with the design team to plan code, produce technical designs and overviews and respond to feedback on your designs
Write high quality code, following any standards and guidelines in place
Participate in code reviews across features in your specialist area
Coaching and/or mentoring less experienced staff on technical matters
Keep the management team up to date with any problems and delays
Test all code against the design ensuring it performs as required and performing tests as required
Assist in finding and fixing bugs within your feature area
Collaborate with your team and mentors to support good engineering practices
In return, you will receive a competitive salary and benefits package amongst other perks, such as a chance to win tickets to the Silverstone Grand Prix. As well as the opportunity to have access to leading technology including our own in-house engine and tools, here at Codemaasters, we actively encourage and support career development and progression with clear roadmaps on how to achieve this.
