Big company challenges, small company culture
Demonware provides online software and services for gaming. We design, develop, and host services for some of the world’s biggest video game franchises, including Call of Duty and Crash Bandicoot.
We are a technology-driven company with a commitment to openness. This means collaborating to solve problems, the freedom to talk to anyone, and the best idea wins. We take the work seriously; ourselves, not so much.
Demonware hosts millions of concurrently connected users. Technologies we use, but are not limited to, React, Python, Linux, MySQL, C++, and Erlang. We solve tough problems on a day to day basis, and interns have a big impact on what we do . We’ve had interns commit code and have it running in production within the first three days of joining.
We also like to have fun while we’re working hard. We dress casually, we have flexible hours, and we have kickass coffee.
Demonware has offices in Dublin, Ireland; Vancouver, Canada; and Shanghai, China, and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc.

Joel Spolsky advocates for interns who are “smart, and get things done”. For that reason, we welcome your application even if your work experience is limited and you haven’t yet built up a mile-long resume. We are not looking for experience but transferable skills and what you can bring to the team
We love hearing from anyone who is enthusiastic about changing the games industry. Not sure you meet all qualifications? Let us decide!
