Activision Blizzard, Inc.

1. Tell us about your company. Activision Blizzard, Inc. is the world’s largest interactive entertainment company, with operations across North America, Europe, and Asia. We are home to some of the most beloved entertainment franchises including Call of

Duty®, Destiny, Skylanders®, World of Warcraft®, Overwatch®, Diablo®, Candy Crush™, and Bubble Witch™. Our combined entertainment network delights hundreds of millions of monthly active users in 196 countries, making us the largest gaming network on the planet!

Everything we do starts with our talent, their inspired creativity, and our commitment to excellence. We’re passionate about building big, immersive, story-filled worlds our audiences love to spend time in. Employees describe Activision Blizzard as an “epic” environment that’s “100% nerd without any restraint,” but we think our CEO, Bobby Kotick, says it best: “Our purpose is to make every day more fun. If you can’t be a great place to work when your mission is that, who can?” More information about Activision Blizzard and its products and services can be found on the company’s website,

2. What job opportunities are available? Art, Game Design, and Engineering are our primary roles in game development, but we also have opportunities in our corporate infrastructure, including information technology, human resources, marketing, sales, etc.

3. Who would be a good candidate for these positions? What skills would successful candidates have? We deeply value the distinctive skills and experience military veterans bring to the Activision team. At the same time, veterans are likely to recognize and embrace our core values. They are passionate professionals, results-oriented, eager to take responsibility and know whole-heartedly what it means to be All In. You can find that and some testimonials from Veteran employees at: https://

4. Why is your company interested in hiring veterans/service members? We are deeply committed to ensuring Veterans are employed after service. Through the Call of Duty Endowment, we’ve assisted in the placement of 50,000 Veterans into white collar jobs. Since Call of Duty is such a big part of the Activision story, we want to ensure we give back to the community who gives us so much inspiration and support.| HOT JOBS 29
