Launch your career with us

It’s not rocket science.

Match your skills with the needs of the game industry

We offer a trainee program for enthusiastic young game programmers to fast-track them into the game industry. We can personally attest to how difficult the journey is from the school desk all the way into the industry. People don’t often even know what they should know and learn to get in. You can learn it the hard way like we did, or you can apply to our program and save months or even years in your life!

The main goal is to get you in. We design the program with our clients and other studios to give you the best chance. We tailor the program to fit the industry’s needs by asking about their procedures, tools, needs and culture to have the best program we could offer. The minimum payoff is to get at least one more game to show off in your portfolio, and we will actively work towards your future long term employment during the program.

You need solid base before you can start building on it

Our trainee program is aimed for people who are studying their final years of game development in universities or universities of applied sciences. But that doesn’t exclude other applicants. You need to have some solid basic game programming skills to learn the new stuff efficiently, but your motivation and learning potential matters the most. We also check that you meet our company values and that you are capable to take responsibility.

All of our developers (and trainees) are required to have/be:

– Passion for games

– Good written and verbal communication skills in English

– Willingness to work in a team

– Keen to learn and develop personally
