The Rocksteady Returnship programme at WB Games is a six month paid returnship for experienced professionals returning to the workforce.

Application Link Here

The programme has been opened with the intention to provide full-time employment opportunities to anyone looking to resume a career following a long term career break for personal circumstances such as (but not limited to) full-time caregiving.

If you feel this opportunity is right for you, we'd love to hear from you by way of an application.

At Rocksteady we are excited to be part of the WB Games Returnship programme because we appreciate the skills you can offer, the perspective you provide, and the contributions you will make. This programme offers you a chance to revamp your skills, update your resume with new experience, and make connections with others transitioning back to the workforce. It also offers learning and support to empower people to transition back to the paid workforce.

We are looking to offer three Returnship opportunities within the following Code departments: Gameplay, Engine, Tools, SDET (test automation and testing tools) and Dev Ops.

Our Gameplay, Engine and SDET teams primarily work in a production codebase written in C++. Our Tools and Dev Ops teams use a broader mix of technologies, including C++, Python and C#.

All of these teams collaborate closely with numerous development teams, and have significant impact on the production of our title.

As part of your application, we would invite candidates to submit a covering letter, to share:

  • Their preference for any of the above teams (we can keep candidates in consideration for all teams, if there is no strong preference on one particular team)
  • Your availability to start this role at Rocksteady

We intend to hire these positions on a hybrid-working basis (from our Kentish town studio), but can review remote working arrangements for individuals who request them - with respect to Rocksteady's existing policies.

We are open to applicants with various levels of experience, and role compensation will subsequently be dependent on experience.

Application closing date 28th October 2022.
*We may also be able to accommodate part-time configurations for these roles, and will discuss on a case-by-case basis.

  • Collaborate with the rest of the team to create, adapt and enhance features and systems
  • Support other programmers and content creators
  • Maintain and improve existing development tools, workflows and processes

  • Proficiency developing in C++, Python and/or C# (depending on the team)
  • Solid communication skills for collaborating with both technical and non-technical team members
  • Well-organised and efficient

Bonus Points:
  • Experience working on a game project or game engine
  • Familiarity with a scripting language like Python
  • Experience working with a UI framework to build desktop applications
