Open Call: Games Development Internships

Open Call: Games Development Internships

The Dundee Design Festival 2021 is looking for two game development interns to join the festival’s collaborative production team.

This year’s festival programme is centred around taking design to new audiences, to help broaden the understanding of it and show its real potential.

Producers Agency of None are looking for two developers to work alongside them and games industry professionals, to produce fun and experimental games content focused upon the festival’s theme: the value of everyday design.

Each of the roles is based upon 20 days of work to be completed across July, August and September 2021. The Dundee Design Festival is committed to fair pay for those working in creative sectors. As a publicly funded festival, they adhere to Creative Scotland’s commitment to fair pay. The internship roles will be paid at £120 per day.

Applicants are sought who can meet the following criteria:

  • Can respond to a brief with interesting and creative ideas
  • Have experience developing small scale games content
  • Can develop games content to be played via a web browser
  • Can create games aimed at a broad audience
  • Will actively contribute as part of the team but can work autonomously when needed
  • Are experienced and comfortable working to tight deadlines
  • Ideally, have an understanding of design locally, nationally and internationally
  • Ideally have experience working with or creating accessible content

Apply Now

To apply, please email your portfolio or examples of your work to the email address below and include a statement of no more than 200 words explaining why you’d like to join the team.

The Dundee Design Festival is looking for people who can demonstrate the skills outlined above so please ensure your work shows these clearly.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions this project will begin with remote working as a requirement but if/when restrictions allow then this is likely to change. Ideally, candidates would be located within Dundee City or surrounding areas.

This opportunity is sponsored by InGAME: Innovation for Games and Media Enterprise, part of the AHRC Creative Industries Cluster Programme with additional funding from the Scottish Funding Council.

Applications close at 17:00 on the 7th July.
