SOFTWARE ENGINEER INTERN - SERVER

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!

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Blizzard Entertainment has an amazing opportunity for a server programmer intern to work on the future of World of Warcraft. Server programmers cover a large range of skill sets - networking, performance measurement, server stability and uptime, and supporting the live service just to name a few. As an intern, you will be working side by side with members of the team that created the server infrastructure that powers World of Warcraft. We have a long list of exciting features and technologies just waiting for someone to work on them - maybe that someone is you! Are you passionate about connecting other gamers in a massive open world? Do you love figuring out how to partition load across a distributed system? Do you want to help build the infrastructure for the next great World of Warcraft feature? As server programmers on World of Warcraft, we do all these things, and more. Come join us and interact with a welcoming and collaborative group of veteran server programmers.
