2020 SUMMER INTERNSHIPS

UX/UI Design Intern

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!

The Battle.net & Online Products organization is home to 300+ superpowered engineers, program managers, and designers focused on the technology that powers Blizzard Entertainment’s games. Whether you’re playing one of our titles, chatting with friends, or just shopping online, B&OP ensures that our players are immersed in engaging, exciting, and secure experiences. Blizzard Entertainment is looking for a talented and enthusiastic intern to join the B&OP Applications team. 

We value applicants with exceptional creativity, strong communication skills, the ability to think quickly, excellent problem-solving skills, and passion for delivering world-class software and entertainment experiences.  Does the idea of working with teams that are delivering on the future product vision for Blizzard’s out of game experiences spark your imagination?

QUEST OBJECTIVES

As UX/Visual Design Intern on the web team, you will combine your skills and passion for product, interaction, and visual design to help shape the end-to-end user experience of web initiatives for Blizzard games.

You will create wireframes, detailed visual mockups, and prototypes, participate in usability testing sessions to validate your designs, and work hand-in-hand with engineers to implement your work.
