Art / Animation Irvine, CA


Internship Term: 2020

3D Art or / 3D Generalist Intern - Hearthstone

Greetings, students! We’re geared up here to offer another round of epic internship experiences in 2020. The internship program offers the opportunity to pause your studies for one summer and work side-by-side with Blizzard Entertainment employees in your area of interest, doing real work that oftentimes ends up in production. As such, we hold you to the same high standards as anybody else in the company.

Just like our gameplay experiences, Blizzard internships are a fully immersive experience. We want interns who are enthusiastic about what they want to do for a living and excited to come in every day to learn and contribute in this hyper-creative atmosphere. Being fully engaged with our team also means communicating effectively and maintaining an open mind - one that is receptive to feedback and able to adapt and grow. Your hobbies and interests can also play in your favor. Passion for technology, gaming, game development, and an in-depth knowledge of Blizzard games, products, and services will always be a plus with us, regardless of the position you’re applying for. Be passionate about who you are, be into our industry, and be willing to go all-in and embrace this opportunity to the fullest!


When you’re not gaming, do you spend all your time sketching, modeling, painting, daydreaming, and generally staying creative? Do you have solid track record of questing and battling your way through Hearthstone or just really, really in love the aesthetic and art style?

What are you doing summer 2020? You should spend it interning with us as a 3D artist! Hearthstone has openings for creative, imaginative, and artistically talented interns.
