Your role within our Kingdom
If you want to create immersive, intuitive user experiences and delight millions of players, then this is the ideal internship for you. Along with your game team, you’ll make meaningful contributions towards:
UX design for new features that excite and inspire our players
Iterative design and production processes that incorporate emerging user testing data
Collaboration with game designers, level designers, and economy designers to create and uphold the UX vision for the game
Skills to create thrills
You deeply respect the role of games in players’ lives. You love games, and as a player you find yourself constantly evaluating and interpreting your emotions and motivations. You empathize with players, and you fiercely advocate for them. You notice great and terrible UX even in non-digital environments - at some point you may have engaged in a heated debate about the fact that a well-designed door shouldn’t need a "Push" or "Pull" sign -.
Other skills include:
Designing and iterating on detailed wireframes, user flows, and information architecture
Understanding of the psychological foundations of UX (player motivations, cognitive flow, etc.)
Education or training in UX Design, Interaction Design, HCI, or Graphic Design
Ability to articulate UX design decisions to non-designers
A love for games and a deep understanding of why games are important
The following would be desirable, but not essential:
Experience in UX design for casual mobile games
Ability to create low-fidelity prototypes in Adobe XD, proto.io, or other prototyping tools
Fluency in iconography
Experience in designing animations and motion graphics for UI transitions
Involvement in designing and conducting usability testing, engageability testing, and UX research
A great saga needs all sorts of heroes
Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. We design games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all sorts of people from all kinds of backgrounds to bring them to life. Truth is, we simply can’t expect diversity in our players and originality in our games without first nurturing it in our people. A great saga needs all sorts of heroes. And that’s it.
We’re Seriously Playful
Officially, we’re a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world. Unofficially, we’re a serious business that’s not afraid to have fun. Every day at King, we mix intuition with logic, art with science and magic with mathematics to create the games the world loves to play. Together with our parent company Activision Blizzard, our mission is to bring moments of magic to everyday life. If you think this is something you can help us achieve, let’s talk.
