DUNGEON DESIGN INTERN - DIABLO 4
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 minions of hell grow stronger during summer 2020! We have an opening for a Dungeon Design internship for Diablo 4. Do you have a passion for the dark, gothic and macabre in a fantasy Action RPG? Are you interested in working on dungeons, generating procedural environments, events, and hordes of enemies for players to slaughter on their crawl to victory? This is your chance to work with the Diablo team and level up your design skills.
Dungeon Design interns will work directly with our development teams to help create procedurally generated dungeons – working across the entire pipeline to combine environments, spawns, events and more into a cohesive, compelling and replayable Dungeon experience. The ideal student has created levels, missions, quests, encounters or other content that demonstrate their instinct for fun gameplay experiences.
