Why choose Mediatonic?
Working at Mediatonic
Above all, we take pride in crafting games that challenge and inspire us.
We take on the biggest creative and technical challenges we can get our hands on and we invest in our people for the long term.
Working in small and ambitious teams we strive for minimal hierarchy. Our philosophy is open and informal whilst also being really hardworking.
Our studios are based in the heart of central London and Brighton and both have their own games rooms and fully stocked fridge. You’ll find plenty of social events and activities during and outside of work time including:
Game nights, Board game nights, Life Drawing Classes, Game Jams, Tech Talks, pub trips and even a visiting Chef once a month who provides lunch for the whole company.
We realise how hard it is to find a role when starting out in the industry. Sending us some prototype code so we can compile it is a great way to show what you can do and get our attention. So for each application, we invite you to send us a prototype along with a CV and cover letter.
We don't know what the prototype will contain, it might be a playable game concept or a demo which solves some technical problem. What we do know is that it will show off your unique talent, ideas and software skills.
The prototype might be something you created especially for this job application, or it might be something you have created in the past for university, work or in your spare time. We don't mind. All we ask is that it meets these criteria...
Here are some guidelines on submissions...
If you think you are going to have difficulties submitting a prototype, but still believe you are right for this role, then please include a link to your portfolio website. In the latter case, if your application is successful you may be asked to complete a code test during your interview.
