At Alpha Channel, we are building something new together.

We are a team of developers, dedicated to creating bold, new and exciting experiences through pushing the boundaries of art and technology. We are incredibly grateful to be recognized as a Best Place to Work, 2023. To have achieved this so early on in our journey is a testament to the team and our collective contributions to our culture.

As a small studio, we set out to do game dev differently and so to win this award gives us such a sense of pride.

We are excited for the future of the studio and to continue sharing our creative projects. Come and join us in building a diverse studio that values imagination and the individual.


As a Senior Engine Programmer at Alpha Channel, you will be a part of the core technology team working directly with the technical director in maintaining, developing and supporting engine features along with helping the team deliver their features.

We are currently using Unreal Engine 5 for our production, and you will get a chance to work across many parts of the pipeline including integration, engine improvements, CI/CD pipeline and general ownership of the technology pipeline used across the entire company.

As a part of this role, you need to be comfortable interacting with developers across all disciplines to guide them across the best practices used to develop our projects, and you will be included in all of the planning stages in delivering the technology across the entire company.

What you will do:

What we're looking for from you:

The recruitment process:

Screening call: first you will meet with a member of the Talent Acquisition team. This isn't an interview, but a chance to get to know you better, and in turn share more about Alpha Channel and the opportunity.

First Interview: next you will meet with the hiring team, where we will focus on understanding your previous experience, whilst offering you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the role.

Second Interview: next you will meet with technical director and a programming team member to do a more in-depth technical conversation / problem solving sessions to give you the opportunity to see how we work together as a team.

Final interview: you will have the final conversation with the founders of the company to look at the company / culture fit and career progression if you were to get hired at Alpha Channel.

Don't meet all the requirements?

We care more about outcomes than ticking boxes, and we know the perfect person for the role often has a CV that's a little different.

Research shows that women are particularly less likely to apply if they don't meet all the criteria in a job listing. If you're second guessing yourself, we encourage you to get in touch anyway.

Don't quit before you've started!

How can we support you?

We want to set you up for success and make our recruitment process as accessible as possible for you.

In your application, feel free to let us know if you need anything to make your experience or environment more comfortable. We'll do our best to support you!
