Frontier’s development strengths are immersive and fun gameplay design with unparalleled artistic quality, all underpinned and enabled by cutting-edge in-house technology and a talent for getting the best out of hardware and UI. We currently have over 450 individuals working at Frontier and we are actively looking to recruit strong candidates in many disciplines – both graduates and experienced people – to work on our exciting, diverse mix of projects on today’s cutting-edge gaming platforms.
Frontier’s founder David Braben began his work in games back in 1982 when he co-authored the seminal game Elite. David founded Frontier in 1994 in order to build a team to continue creating high quality, innovative games in the rapidly evolving games industry with an ambition that only teams of skilled professionals can deliver.
Frontier has thrived over the subsequent three decades. We have built a uniquely diverse catalogue of games – enabled by our Cobra technology – that has defined genres, earned critical acclaim and won a place in the hearts of millions of players. Having worked with a succession of top publishers we now self-publish our own high quality, innovative games of different genres that embody our world-class expertise across all major gaming formats.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.

Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
