Welcome to the Obsidian University Summer Internship Program!
Obsidian Entertainment is known around the world for the incredible stories we tell. We would love for you to join us in our latest adventure! Obsidian is bringing back our official summer internship program. This summer you will go on a quest unlike anything you've experienced so far. We would love for you to become a part of the family that joined you on a post-apocalyptic trip through New Vegas, sailed with you chasing a god through the Deadfire Archipelago, and watched as you made your mark on Halcyon, a colony in way over their heads.
What should I expect from this opportunity?
• Get paired with a mentor (or mentors) at the studio who will show you the ropes of how we make games here.
• You will not be doing coffee runs. You will be creating content that has a good chance of making it into the title. You will be interacting with fans. You will be testing content and learning how to give good professional critiques and feedback. You will become part of the Obsidian culture for the duration of the program.
• Get portfolio and work reviews to help you with your future in the industry.
• Participate in organized lunches and socials with different developers at the studio and meet a wide variety of disciplines, personalities, and success stories.
• Access to Obsidian University classes taught by Obsidian developers and any guest speakers that we invite during your internship.
When is the deadline to apply?
The deadline for the application process has passed for the 2023 season. Please come back early next year to see updated information for the 2024 season.
What are the dates for the program?
The 2023 program started on June 12th, 2023 and goes until August 25th of 2023. (Dates may be subject to minor changes.)
I am not local, do I have a chance?
Continuing from last year, the Summer Internship Program will be providing housing to non-local candidates. You will be housed near the Obsidian Campus. We are only considering candidates that are either local or willing to relocate for the summer.
Due to the unpredictable nature of COVID-19 the above is subject to potential change.
Is it okay if I can't make it for the entire internship?
Unfortunately, due to the short nature and packed schedule of the program, we are not accepting anyone who is planning to join late, leave early, or take a large leave during the internship.
Is this a paid internship?
Yes. Also, if there is any sort of program that your university offers for you to earn credits off of this, we're happy to work with you and your school to make that happen.
Will I get any cool free stuff?
Oh, you will get free stuff and we think it's pretty cool too.
