Graduate Programmer

We have a brilliant opportunity for a graduate programmer to join the four-strong development team at Hammerhead as part of the Digital City Fellowship Scheme in the North East of England.

We are looking for a talented graduate with Unity or Unreal experience prepared to pioneer the next generation of Virtual Reality software. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain some experience in game development in a safe and flexible environment whilst also learning the ropes of running a business based in the North East of England.

If you do not reside in the North East or unable to become a partner, please let us know if you are interested in working with us on a freelance basis.

Desired Skills and Experience

  • Practical and demonstrable experience developing to a shipping standard

  • Proficiency with C# and JavaScript or UnrealScript and C++

  • Ability to write clear, maintainable and optimized code

  • Strong problem-solving skills and math background

  • Ability to learn and adapt to new languages, techniques and codebases

  • Self-motivated with strong work ethic

  • Good verbal and written English skills

Our Portfolio includes

  • Undercurrent, an underwater adventure game for PC and Rift.

  • We Are Zombies, a horror stealth game, developed for the Oculus VRJam.

  • Architectural visualizations and walkthroughs with and without VR implementation. This contract work has a fast turnaround, and could provide a secondary revenue stream to help stabilize the company financially.

  • We are currently evaluating whether to focus on one long term project like Undercurrent, or develop a series of smaller VR experiences to be released gradually and bundled up for the launch of the consumer Rift, your input would be appreciated.
