We are EA
We entertain millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. That’s why we employ the most creative, passionate people in the industry.
The Challenge Ahead:
EA’s UK game studio Criterion is opening up several yearlong internships, spanning all game development crafts.
We are growing our team with talented people who will help us take a huge leap forwards, and you, the next generation of game makers, are central to this ambition. As we explore new possibilities within gaming, challenge our own beliefs and step outside of our comfort zone, we need fresh perspective that challenges convention and inspires us to grow.
To that end, we’re looking for a talented and motivated Intern Game Designer who will help us on this journey, while learning about the field of games art hands-on.
What an Intern Game Designer at Criterion does:
Collaboration is a key pillar at Criterion, and as a designer you’ll work together with other designers, engineers, artists and all other disciplines within the studio. Unlike some other studios, we don’t separate our teams by craft. At Criterion we believe we work best when we work together in multi-discipline feature teams, allowing for even greater collaboration and creativity.
Designing a game requires many areas of expertise, so there’s a lot to choose from within design specialisms: Levels, Gameplay, UI/UX, Handling, Systems, Events/Modes and Economy. Currently, we are looking for an intern in any one of these areas depending on what’s best for you, and in all likelihood you’ll end up working across several these.
What we are looking for:
Completing a degree in games design, or something similar
Some experience in Design – maybe you’ve taken part in a hack, worked on a uni or personal project
Experience using visual and text base scripting interfaces and 3D tools / software (Maya, Max)
An intense passion to make incredible games with fresh player experiences
You value working in a team and aren’t afraid to ask questions
You know that we will never stop learning and so have a hunger to learn as much as possible
A passion for games and games design
You play games and often try to understand how they are made or have ideas on how to improve them
Enthusiasm for working in our collaborative and friendly environment
While not essential if you have created a game feature or level, worked on a related project, or maybe designed a website…show us, we would love to take a look
We appreciate the work our Interns provide, so here at EA we like to offer you great facilities while you are working onsite including:
Free onsite gym
Two annual parties (Summer and Christmas)
More importantly, because we love working with world-class creators, we maintain a culture that thrives on creative freedom and autonomy.
