Senior/Principal Gameplay Programmers – Permanent


At PlayStation London Studio, we are on a mission to make award-winning, landmark games. Innovation is always at the heart of what we do, and our upcoming PlayStation 5 multiplayer title strives to push more boundaries. The focus for our brand-new console IP is to continue growing our team to work on our online co-op combat game set in modern fantasy London.

This game is close to our hearts, as we’ve seen this idea grow from a seed with the whole team coming up with the concept from the very beginning. We’re looking for new starters to continue our journey on shaping our plans for this AAA project.

We’re also a part of the PlayStation Studios family, a collective of teams - from Insomniac to Naughty Dog and many more. As such, we have a support system – often knowledge sharing industry advancements so that all our studios, individually create memorable gaming experiences for our audiences.

We’re looking for Senior and/or Principal Gameplay Programmers to join our passionate and creative team. You’ll work closely with Designers and Artists to bring ideas and experiences to life, with a special focus on the Player and their end-to-end experience.

Scope of Work

Knowledge / Experience

Desired Experience

Impact / Complexity

We are looking for Gameplay Programmers who are currently working at a Senior or Principal level. This means you will take ownership for the implementation and delivery of your own tasks, alongside balancing those tasks with bug fixing and support work.

If you are at a Principal level, you will be someone who has multiple years of experience developing AAA PC/console games in various stages of development lifecycle at a Senior level. Therefore, the knowledge you bring to the team will be at an expert level and you will have more responsibility.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We encourage you to bring your best-unaltered self to work. Inclusivity is one of our studio values, which means we embrace different perspectives to fuel our creativity and we know that our games are stronger for it!

It is important to us that our teams are passionate about diversity and inclusion. They must understand that these words speak to people’s lived experiences that may differ to their own. We encourage our teams to educate themselves and show support and their commitment to DE&I (diversity, equity, and inclusion). As an example, some of our outreach activities include giving talks, mentoring, speaking at schools, running roundtables and much more.

We therefore welcome applications from all groups who are underrepresented in the games industry. We can offer training to upskill our team, so if you don’t feel you meet 100% of the job criteria, we still strongly encourage you to apply and look forward to hearing from you.


Our roles can be flexible in terms of work location in the UK. We will consider the individual’s preference for hybrid, remote or onsite working. We may be able to support remote working from a selection of other countries depending on location and the role you're applying to, so please reach out to see if that could be a possibility. If you wish to relocate to the UK and require sponsorship, we can support you with the visa process.

We have so many benefits, and we felt that if we listed them all out here it might look like we are bragging! What we can say is that we have you covered, from health and wellbeing, to finance and personal development, there is something there for everyone!
