We are looking for a motivated and thoughtful UX Design Intern to join us in designing new features and experiences for our games. 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 to UX Design for new features and collaborate with game designers, level designers and economy designers to create and uphold the UX vision for the game. 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.
