The types of internships that we have on offer

Industry placements now form a vital part of many university courses and we are delighted to be able to offer up-and-coming talent the chance to experience the industry first-hand in a supportive and vibrant environment. We offer 12-month internships.

We can offer the longer term internships as part of a Year in Industry course. Shorter term options are available if you have demonstrable experience working on game technology. These internships give you the opportunity of real experience to help decide where you skills lie and what you would like to pursue within the industry.

The fun stuff, plus a few extra things!

d3t always strives for excellence, but equally we actively encourage breaks from work in line with our anti-crunch ethos. During breaks you get to play the latest in video games in our dedicated break out area, express yourself on our (very fun) team blackboard whilst enjoying the benefits of free refreshments, or even join in some of our social and gaming clubs!

We view internships as a great way for graduates to break into this competitive industry. It also gives us the opportunity to meet the very best in talent coming through our universities. Our recruitment method for interns is just as rigorous as our usual method, so if all parties are happy with the outcome of the internship, we view this as a possible routeway to securing full time employment with d3t.

“I’ve had an amazing time working for d3t as a Programming Intern. Stepping into a new industry can be quite scary, but the people are d3t are so incredibly friendly and helpful you feel part of the team in no time. During my internship I have worked with so many talented people and learned a great amount from them. The company culture is incredible and they have lots of awesome projects to work on – couldn’t have asked for more!”

“d3t was my first step into the games industry and I don’t think I could’ve landed anywhere better. Taking a first step anywhere can be daunting but within my first few weeks I already felt like I had been part of the team for months. The sense of community is unlike anything I could’ve expected. There was never a time where I felt under any kind of pressure as the people who work here are some of the most supportive and welcoming people you could work with.

No matter your previous experience or background you will feel part of the amazing team at d3t. I cannot recommend this internship enough, don’t sit on the fence like I almost did!”

“It’s been a genuine pleasure working with everybody at d3t. When I started at the studio, I used to say to my friends and family, that if someone gave me a piece of paper and asked me to write out my dream job, it would be this one. Later on, that changed, as I realised I probably wouldn’t even dream up a job this good and fun.


Truly I couldn’t have asked for a better internship, or co-workers.”

“d3t was by far the best work experience I ever had. Even though I was there for only 2 months and a half, I feel like I have learned so much in that time. The work was indeed challenging (but in the best way possible) and I knew I could count on my co-workers, who were always eager to help out. Everyone in the office was lovely, and they made me feel part of the d3t family from the start. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun, and it was always a pleasure to come to work.

No matter if you’re an experienced dev, or fresh out of Uni, I would recommend d3t to anyone – the interesting projects and the lovely people do make it one of the best places to work at.”

“d3t is a remarkable company to do an internship with!  The work is both interesting and challenging, and you get to work on some amazing projects which scale right up to AAA games! All the staff are friendly and the office maintains a relaxed atmosphere despite being a very professional business.

If you earn an internship with d3t, rest assured they believe you’re capable to do the job and will give you every opportunity to prove yourself, as a member of the team! After 14 months I can, hand on heart, say that it would be a pleasure to return to d3t, I’ve learnt so much and they still have much more to offer!”
