As a User Experience Design Intern, you'll play a critical role in shaping the player experience for a high-scope product area that is complex and ambiguous. The problem space will often encompass multiple features and sometimes span across teams. You will apply design thinking methodologies and take a systematic, data-informed approach to ensure experiential continuity across all product and platform touch points. You'll work from concept through development to define the player experience using contemporary UX tools and design systems, and collaborate with other designers to achieve your objectives.
This UX Design Intern will work with a group of UX and Visual Designers within our Player Platform organization, which is the hub for our game experiences across desktop, web, mobile, and consoles. You will apply your interaction design skills to help us ensure experiential continuity across these platforms and touch points -- including understanding audience needs and generating delightful solutions.
For this role, you'll find success through craft expertise, collaboration prioritizing the delight of players. If you embody player empathy and care about the experiences of players, this could be the role for you! Our team fosters an inclusive and diverse culture. We encourage collaboration and celebrate different backgrounds.
Please choose one or two projects that you are proud of and think best represent you as a Designer. Student Projects, group projects, hackathon, self guided or live projects are great.
We'd primarily like to see the process (e.g., wireframes, prototypes, photos of sketches) that you used in order to get to final solutions.If your work is protected due to NDA, please don’t violate any legal agreements. Our goal here is to learn about your skills and how you work. Consider abstracting - talk to us about a scenario you worked on while removing any details that identify the project or employer, for example.
