Depends where you are really but in general an undergrad degree (any hard science will be considered transferable by any company that knows what they're doing) doesn't hurt. There are a few fast track programs which are well respected such as here in Edinburgh we have Codeclan (
Essentially bigger companies are going to want to see qualifications and likely degrees. Also experience. Smaller companies, especially startups will look at any body of work you present them, qualifications or not.
