Galaxy Grove is a new game studio in Utrecht, Netherlands, specialising in high quality 3D management and building games (entertainment games, not applied/serious games). Our games have a strong atmosphere, striking art and unique, intuitive gameplay. We are currently a team of 5 people and we plan to release our first game in 2023. Galaxy Grove is founded and led by award winning game industry veteran Joost van Dongen (Awesomenauts, Swords & Soldiers, Blightbound, Robo Maestro, Proun, Cello Fortress, De Blob).

Galaxy Grove is looking for a coding intern to join us during the first half of 2023. As a C++ programming intern, you’ll work with us on our newest management & building games, including our unannounced new train game. For a glimpse of the kind of style we’re doing, have a look at the header art on galaxy-grove.com. You’ll work in Unreal (C++ and Blueprint) on things like gameplay and simulation. You’ll also be involved in the games and company as a whole, like joining in playtests and brainstorms.


  • Skilled with C++
  • Good at communicating in English
  • Doesn’t need a visa to work in the Netherlands (if you have an EU passport you don’t need a visa)


  • Experience with Unreal
  • Passionate about making great games

Galaxy Grove is an inclusive game studio where everyone with a passion for making great games is welcome. We believe in helping each other get better at our craft, in learning new skills, and in a healthy work-life balance where overtime and crunch are avoided.

Be sure to provide an extensive portfolio, showing the quality of your best work, but also the diversity of your skills, plus your CV and cover letter. Also include at least one code sample (consisting of a number of related classes, showing your skills with C++ and with Unreal).

This is a hybrid position, with Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday working from the Galaxy Grove office in Utrecht. The other days can be either working from home or from the office, depending on your preference.

Note that an internship is not the same as a junior job. An internship is a full-time learning position, usually for a period of 4 to 5 months, and usually as a mandatory part of an education. An internship pays a small monthly financial compensation and is far below a full job’s salary.
