We’re looking for a Game Programmer to join the DRIVE BUY team.

At GLITCHERS, Game Programmers are at the center of our teams, working together with every other discipline and making our games really shine.

With only a few game programmers at GLITCHERS, you'll get to enjoy the variety of working on lots of different areas of the game as well as being part of a close-knit team. It’s important that you take pride in your work, and know what it means to take responsibility and deliver quality and fun to players.

  • Independently create complete solutions from scratch
  • Support and contribute new ideas to game design


  • Wide understanding of different game technology areas (gameplay, graphics, tools etc.)
  • Understanding/experience with any of the following is a plus: UI development, modern graphics technology, content-driven systems, real-time multiplayer, mobile
  • Passion for games
  • Ability to quickly get up to speed with existing code and tools
  • Strong, professional experience using C# & GIT


  • Competitive Salary
  • A share of our common success: Glitchers Ltd share options
  • Relocation assistance (if required)
  • Great working hours (9:15am - 5pm)
  • Holiday in-lieu of overtime (if needed)
  • Regular studio social events
  • The opportunity to work with New IP and to make a positive impact on people's lives with your work
  • A high degree of ownership in a workplace committed to creativity and innovation
  • A high impact on all of the studio's projects
  • Remote work is A-OK!
  • Choice of hardware
  • Training opportunities


If you love to think about big problems and want to solve them responsibly with technology, then GLITCHERS is the place for you. We’ve built a company that creates amazing original game IP for ourselves and our ever-growing collaborators. Our team is also growing, but we’re still small enough that everyone makes a big difference. In our experience, the freedom to create along with the openness to share makes the best products. We believe that the best games come from the fewest cooks.

We're BAFTA nominated and have won countless other awards for our games: D&AD, Webby, Cannes Lions, One Awards and many more - we want to continue on our successful journey with you. We pride ourselves in building games beyond entertainment, disrupting new market segments and using games to solve big problems. A great example is Sea Hero Quest, the first mobile game where anyone could help scientists tackle dementia. We have a number of ongoing projects in the games beyond entertainment category and this position would join that close knit team.
