No industry experience required, though it is preferred.
You know how so many of us want to work within the games industry, because we have ideas of what we think video games should be, but we are intimidated by just how hard it is to break into it in the first place? Well, here’s some good news for you. Sucker Punch is currently hiring engineering interns for their next new PlayStation 4 project- and the kicker is, they don’t need you to have had any industry experience for this position.
The position is described by Sucker Punch as being highly collaborative, and does however require a background in computer science, since most of the work will be done in C++, in addition to their proprietary Scheme based scripting language. Also, only people who are legally eligible to work in the United States can jump on board right now, so there is that too.
Still, though! If you’ve wanted to work within the games industry, this is a great opportunity! And working with an in house Sony developer, as they work on their new project for the current market leader, the same guys who are behind the Sly Cooper and inFamous games… I mean, you could do worse, you know?
