Engineering Intern (DI) - Fall 2021
Zynga's software engineers don't just develop some of the world's largest games, they deliver highly scalable infrastructure used by tens of millions of users every day. Our software engineers are blazing trails in all facets of game design, mobile technologies, and massive scalability. Zynga faces a number of challenges - but many are unique to our situation: the large data requirements of online gaming require us to continually push boundaries to discover the best solutions. Zynga software engineers are willing to pick up any of the languages, technologies, or methodologies necessary to smite a challenge - and if a conventional solution doesn't exist, they innovate as necessary. Our software engineers are comfortable moving between front end, back end, and architecture roles.
The Data Ingestion (DI) team is responsible for building our mobile Analytics SDK and a near real-time data ingestion pipeline. The mobile SDK is deployed in almost all Zynga games and allows us to collect a suite of data that forms the basis for many Zynga applications & reporting. Our ingestion system collects data from the SDK and scales to support nearly 17 billion requests per day. Working on the DI team would be a great opportunity to learn about mobile and server-side development. Our mobile SDK is built in C# and C++, and our ingestion system is built on Java and Go. You would also get hands-on experience working with popular AWS technologies such as SQS, Kinesis, Kinesis Analytics, lambda, ECS and EKS.
