“Typical Day” - d3t Programming Intern
The first hour of your day might be spent looking at code reviews submitted by other team members. You could then spend the rest of the morning working on a tool you’ve been developing which communicates via HTTP to a game title we’re involved with. Before your lunch, you might submit your code for review.
Your afternoon could be spent working on a different project you have on the go – helping to port a PC title to console. You could be involved with all aspects of this port, including networking, rendering, input, console OS etc. You will be reporting to a more senior programmer who is on-hand to offer advice and help whenever you may need it.
Projects we are proud to have worked on in the past have included Mafia II Definitive Edition, Burnout Paradise Remastered, The Witcher III, Human Fall Flat plus many more we can’t yet talk about. We continue to work on a wide variety of creative projects with world class studios.
