Production Intern (AAI)

About Us

Zynga is a leading developer of the world's most popular social games that are played by millions of people around the world every single day. We are headquartered in San Mateo and have additional offices in the U.S., Canada, U.K and India. Since our founding in 2007, our mission has been to connect the world through games and delight consumers with social gaming experiences. To date, more than one billion people have played our games across the Web and mobile, including FarmVille, Zynga Poker, Words With Friends, Hit it Rich! Slots and CSR.

Our Teams

Zynga’s Applied AI group focuses on developing innovative ways to address problems within the game development process, demonstrating directly the ways that AI can make valuable contributions. Our first title, Spell Forest, is available for download and builds on our technology stack, designed to demonstrate what we call "AI-First Game Development".

The team’s production role primarily focuses on planning, tracking, and reporting on initiative progress, facilitating collaboration, and leading meetings. Candidates should be interested in supporting groundbreaking innovation in the areas of Game Development, Machine Learning and Computational Creativity - but a deep understanding of these fields is not required. A passion for games is definitely an advantage!
