Internship Software Engineer, 2022 start


Job Vacancy Background
Work on ground-breaking multiplayer titles, push the boundaries of games technology and virtual worlds, or get to grips with some of the world’s toughest security challenges. If your ambitions are high, we’ll give you the tools, support and culture to take them even higher.
As a Software Engineering Intern you will be mentored by some of our most experienced engineers. You will help solve some of the most interesting problems in areas such as gameplay, game engines, distributed systems, high-performance cloud computing, and much more.


Interns will be given a challenging project or support critical work, decided on by our Head of Engineering, depending on what is best suited to their skills and interests.

Example projects include:

  • working with AAA game studios to build new gaming features into our simulation stack
  • integrating new engines with our distributed stack -- e.g. physics, navigation, raycasting

  • developing new algorithms to distribute and scale our simulations
  • developing tooling to help developers understand and reason what is happening inside game services
  • low-level performance optimisation & efficiency improvements

We would like to hear from you if you identify with the following

  • Penultimate or final year of relevant degree or equivalent 
  • Extra-curricular activity and/or internships in a software environment
  • Knowledge of programming languages such as C++, Go, C#, Java and their paradigms, or a burning desire to learn and master them

  • Algorithmic and data structures knowledge
  • An interest in gaming, simulation or distributed systems
N.b. Our internships are always paid. 
For a comprehensive overview of our Campus Programme and Engineering Teams, please ask us for a copy of our briefing pack!
While we think the above experience could be important, we can’t predict the future and so we’re keen to hear from applicants that believe they have valuable experience. If you identify with the team & mission, but not all of the suggestions, then please still apply!!
