Making a computer game is a very complex process and a wide range of expertise is essential in order to succeed as a games developer. The breadth of skills required to finish a game encompasses roles in programming, art, animation, sound effects, quality assurance, production, creative development, technical development etc through to positions in sales, marketing, administration, finance, human sources, training, public relations.
One of the benefits of working for a smaller organisation, rather than a large corporate, is that you rapidly get exposure to a whole range of opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge. Talented, creative top performers rapidly progress through the ranks and are sure to fast-track their careers with us. We are always interested in hearing from highly talented individuals and we are particularly interested in recruiting for programmers, artists, animators, designers, next-gen artists, sound engineers and managers.
The simple answer is, YES! Work placement students so enjoy their experience with Kuju that they regularly apply to join us when they graduate. We take students for short summer work placements as well as longer one year industrial placements. This is an extremely popular option for students wishing to gain real work experience in games development and consequently can often be oversubscribed so please apply well in advance for a placement.
