Activision Blizzard Media is a rapidly growing business created to connect advertisers with our 350M+ global player base across Activision, Blizzard and King.

The initial goal of this thriving start-up effort has been to create premium, creative advertising experiences for world-class casual mobile games like King’s Candy Crush Saga. Looking ahead, we plan to launch advertising across the Activision Blizzard portfolio, including high growth areas like eSports. This is a really exciting time to join this growing business.

Your role within our Kingdom

You will be a high-contributing intern across our growing advertising Strategy & Operations group, based in San Francisco, which includes Biz Ops, Sales Operations and Pricing & Yield Management teams. The Strategy & Operations group partners with other Activision Blizzard Media teams to accelerate business growth, define our long-term approach, and solve our highest priority problems. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited, to:

  • Working alongside the various advertising Strategy & Operations teams to develop and document our growth roadmap and facilitate strategic decision-making;
  • Identifying and evaluating strategic opportunities through in-depth market and competitive analysis;
  • Supporting day-to-day team objectives: this could include refining our pricing approaches, helping to landscape and onboard new advertising demand partners, partnering with cross-functional teams to expand our inventory, or other strategic and financial topics;
  • Keeping a finger on the pulse of the industry and staying ahead of mobile advertising, media & gaming trends to inform our growth and approach;
  • Working both independently and with the broader team to produce recommendations based on rigorous problem solving and quantitative/qualitative analysis

Skills to create thrills

We are looking for an independent thinker who can make convincing, information-based arguments to senior stakeholders, with a consistent track record of using good judgment and succeeding in a highly ambiguous environment.

  • Currently enrolled in an MBA programme at a leading institution;
  • A proven strategic and analytical business manager with experience in quantitative analysis;
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a dynamic environment with high role ambiguity;
  • Exposure to - or knowledge and real passion for - one or more of the following sectors: gaming, mobile advertising, advertising technology;
  • Exceptional collaborator with strong interpersonal skills, able to work with a variety of different roles, from data scientists to salespeople;
  • Impeccable written and oral presentation abilities;
  • Fluent proficiency in English, both spoken and written

Bonus points

  • You have a deep understanding of the advertising (marketers, media planning/selling & creative) and gaming (mobile, console, PC) ecosystems and a passion to learn more about these areas;
  • Strategy or management consulting experience

A great saga needs all sorts of heroes

Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. We design games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all sorts of people from all kinds of backgrounds to bring them to life. Truth is, we simply can’t expect diversity in our players and originality in our games without first nurturing it in our people. A great saga needs all sorts of heroes. And that’s it.

We’re Seriously Playful

Officially, we’re a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world. Unofficially, we’re a serious business that’s not afraid to have fun. Every day at King, we mix intuition with logic, art with science and magic with mathematics to create the games the world loves to play. Together with our parent company Activision Blizzard, our mission is to bring moments of magic to everyday life. If you think this is something you can help us achieve, let’s talk.
