Your Mission

The Performance and Talent Assessment practice within Activision Blizzard is responsible for designing and implementing assessments throughout our organization of almost 10,000 employees. With an ambitious roadmap for 2021, we are transforming how Activision Blizzard selects, supports, and develops its employees around the world.

As Talent Assessment Specialist, you will work closely with our colleagues in Talent Acquisition, Succession Planning, Talent Operations and beyond to deliver fair, informative, and valid assessments for employees and applicants alike.

Reporting to the Performance and Talent Assessment Expert, you will be involved throughout our assessment projects, from initial scoping with our internal customers, all the way through to design, implementation, and monitoring.

Project and task management skills are vital: you’ll need to be comfortable switching your focus between multiple concurrent projects, responding to shifting priorities and accommodating requests for support from our colleagues.

As a business we have an extraordinary track record of delivering stakeholder value for over 30 years. We are a member of the Fortune 500 and the S&P 500. Our enduring franchises are some of the world’s most popular, including Activision’s Call of Duty® and Crash Bandicoot™, Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft®, Overwatch®, Hearthstone®, Diablo®, and StarCraft®, and King's Candy Crush™, Bubble Witch™, and Farm Heroes™. Our sustained success has enabled the company – through its support of the Call of Duty Endowment – to help find employment for over 80,000 veterans.
