A great saga needs all sorts of heroes
Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people that share the same idea of what makes a good workplace great. No matter where you're from, it's all about what we can achieve together when creating truly magical moments for all our players. That's why we hire all sorts of talent - because a great saga needs all sorts of heroes.
About the Stockholm Studio
Our first studio has been making casual games since 2003. It is the home of Candy Crush Saga, one of the world's most played game. Since 2015 we have two studios centrally located in one of the world's most unique and beautiful capital cities, built over 14 islands. You'll find plenty of urban delights and open spaces within walking, skating and swimming distance - dependent on the time of year, of course.
This will be a 6-month internship starting in August. Please include a link to you portfolio in your application. All applications must be made in English.
