Closing Date:  Sunday 11 October 2020
Reference:  215DPERDF20
Further details:    Job Description     Advert    

The Graduate Internship Scheme is a collaboration between the University of Sunderland, a recent Graduate and a regional SME. The Scheme has been designed to benefit both the Graduate and the company, ensuring that the Graduate takes the first steps on the career ladder whilst the company benefits from the Graduates enthusiasm, expertise and up to date knowledge.  



The Internship is a full time position.


The Organisation:

We are a design studio creating products for the immersive and games sector.

The Role:

Working in games development, you will be involved in the creation and production of games for personal computers, games consoles, social/online games, arcade games, tablets, mobile phones and other handheld devices. 


You may focus on a particular area of programming such as network, engine, graphic, toolchain and artificial intelligence. However, there is often much less of a distinction between the role of developer and designer, and your job may incorporate both programming and design. 


The making of a game from concept to finished product can take years and involve teams of professionals. There are several stages, including creating and designing a game's look and how it plays, animating characters and objects, creating audio, programming, localisation, testing, editing and producing. 

What will be the key tasks and responsibilities for the Intern? 


As a game developer, you will need to: 

•             design, develop and deliver systems and high-quality code using programming languages, such as C++ and C# 

•             perform code reviews to ensure code quality 

•             refactor code to improve the design of existing code 

•             quality test coding systematically and thoroughly to find problems or bugs and record precisely where the problem was discovered 

•             debug programs and solve complex technical problems that occur within the game's production 

•             collaborate with games development team members to meet the needs of a project 

•             work closely with designers, artists and other staff involved in the design process to create a quality product to schedule 

•             perform effectively under pressure and meet deadlines to ensure a game is completed on time 

•             write clear, concise, and reliable code, using common programming techniques (OOP, data-driven), to implement features passed from design to create exceptional gaming experiences for users. 



You may also: 

•             develop designs or initial concept designs for games including gameplay 

•             generate game scripts and storyboards 

•             create the visual aspects of the game at the concept stage 

•             use 2D or 3D modelling and animation software, such as Maya, at the production stage

 •             produce the audio features of the game, such as character voices, music and sound effects. 


At times, you might: 

•             have responsibility for technical strategy and execution of projects from concept to market 

•             plan resources and manage both the development team and the process.
