Technical Game Design Intern - Remote

Who We Are


Second Dinner is an award-winning independent game development studio that is here to make the most fun games in the world. Not super fun games. Not SUPER DUPER fun games. We mean the MOST fun games. In fact, our game MARVEL SNAP has earned multiple Mobile Game of the Year Awards (Game AwardsDICE), Best Strategy Game (IGN), and the Apple Design Award for Innovation!


Second Dinner is a remote-first studio, so while we are headquartered in Irvine, California, most of our team is fully remote across the United States. We want the most talented teammates wherever they call home. A diverse team with varied perspectives makes us a better company and will help us make better games. If you can bring something new to the table and expand our point of view, that's a huge upside. 


About the Internship


As a member of the Second Dinner internship class, your contribution will play a pivotal role in shaping our internship experience as we enter our second year, ensuring its continued success for years to come! While we're still finalizing the specific dates, we are aiming for the internship duration to be approximately 12 to 13 weeks. This role will be fully remote, but if you are local to HQ, there will be opportunities for you to work from the office.


Our Design Team


At Second Dinner, we believe great design ideas come from everywhere and everyone, and it’s our job as Game Designers to collate, refine, implement, iterate, and help bring those ideas to life. We partner with every part of the studio–art, engineering, production, UX, product, analytics, and sound–to make the most fun and engaging experiences possible for our players.
