The Turbulenz open source HTML5 games engine

Meet our team of superheroes!

Turbulenz is a fast-growing internet technology company, responsible for developing the technology and platform that enables the revolutionary online game network, turbulenz.com. Turbulenz is an emerging games platform that instantly delivers high quality 3D games in the web browser to gamers around the world. Turbulenz is currently in open beta and everyone is invited to have a play.

Turbulenz was founded in early 2009 by a group of former Directors and Programmers from Electronic Arts. Since then, the team has grown to include developers and business leaders from some of the world's leading entertainment companies such as Apple, Sony, Google, Microsoft, Square Enix, Eidos and Realtime Worlds.

Turbulenz is privately funded and has raised over $5 million to date.

Vision

Turbulenz' vision is to create the world's greatest and most engaging gaming experience across all game genres and all types of gamer demographics. With a relentless focus on quality, Turbulenz endeavours to become the leading games platform for developers and gamers alike. Turbulenz is heavily investing in the creation of its own high-quality 3D content as well as providing tools and technology for third party developers to develop, test, publish, and monetise their games on turbulenz.com. Ultimately, we will continuously work to ensure that Turbulenz remains the home of instantly accessible, high-quality and engaging games.

 

Why work for us?

As a fast-growing and privately-owned company, Turbulenz is developing cutting-edge technology that will power the next generation of video games. We plan to shape the way video games of the future are designed, built and played. We like developers who are willing to go the extra mile, but in return we will work to make long hours the exception rather than the rule. If you want to be a part of something special, enjoy working on technology or solutions that are ahead of their time, you have come to the right place!

We are looking for bright, creative and hard working individuals who have a passion for games. At Turbulenz, you will get the unique opportunity to work for an industry defining early-stage technology venture, enabling you to get involved in the most exciting projects from day one onward.

We are a diverse and dynamic team and we encourage people from all backgrounds to apply to us. Most importantly, Turbulenz is an informal and fun place to work where there is no such thing as a day to day routine. If you are willing to put in the effort, you will be rewarded and you can progress rapidly in our company.

We offer a competitive salary and potential share options for highly qualified candidates and strongly performing employees. We also offer a company sponsored pension scheme as well as private medical and dental insurance. All our employees are entitled to 25 days annual leave and the working hours are flexible.

We recruit people based on their skills, competencies and personal qualities required for the respective positions.

First professional job

If you're looking for your first professional job, please consider our graduate positions.

Speculative Applications

We are always on the lookout for exceptional talent. If none of the above vacancies fit the bill, please send us an email with your CV to Nicola Nehm stating what contribution you could make to Turbulenz.

Graduates

We are looking for bright, talented people who have a passion for games and developing cutting edge technology. We are looking for programming experience but for us talent and enthusiasm are more important than work experience and qualifications.

If you are looking for a structured graduate programme and a day to day routine, Turbulenz might not be the right place for you. However, at Turbulenz we will give you the opportunity to make a valuable contribution from day one. We will give you early responsibility but at the same time all the support you need as we know starting your first ever job can be a daunting experience. The advantage of working for a small company is that you can get involved in many different projects and tasks right from the beginning. You will get a broad experience and you can decide over time which area you most enjoy working in and specialise in your chosen field.

If you are hard working and a fast learner, there is the option to progress quickly in your career as we don't follow strict time lines like in other graduate programmes. We also offer you a competitive salary, private medical and dental insurance, 25 days annual leave as well as flexible working hours.

Placement Students

We are now offering a number of positions for students on industrial placements. Candidates need to be in their penultimate year of university and need to be eligible to work in the UK.

During your placement, you will receive support through your personal mentor as well as the team's development manager. You will also be included in our structured appraisal process.

More information can be found in the Placement Student job description.
