We offer internships to help talented people grow and shine within an established Dutch game studio. You’ll work alongside experienced professionals on award-winning games, made with cutting-edge technology, played by hundreds of thousands of gamers. To get you ready for the industry, our internships are uniquely focused on training you to become a junior Abbey Games employee.
Your supervisor and the rest of the team will give you dedicated guidance. After every period of two to three months, we’ll evaluate – together with you – to see if you’re still on the way to achieve your full potential.
These opportunities come with high demands, though. We expect you to be a pro-active member of our development team(s) and to take initiative with taking on work and responsibilities.
Abbey Games is not looking to fill specific internship positions, but we’re always on the lookout to find good people in all fields: art, design, tech and other. We usually host up to three internship slots in the following periods:
- ~ September 1 – ~ November 15
- ~ November 15 – ~ January 30
- ~ February 1 – ~ April 15
- ~ April 15 – ~ June 30
- ~ July 1 – ~ August 30 (Summer Internship)
Two consecutive periods are also possible. We usually start approaching candidates two months before an internship period starts and decide on which candidates to select for the internship about a month ahead – to give you some ballpark estimate on when you can expect a reply from us. Unfortunately, we only have the time to reply to candidates we actually want to invite over for an interview or are otherwise interested in. But if we don’t reply this time, no-one says we won’t reply next time you apply of course!
If you think you can contribute to our team and our games, please send us a motivation and a portfolio of your work or a relevant resume; we do not consider applications without them. If you’re interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you’d like to be updated when we offer new internship possibilities and which ones will be coming up in the future you can subscribe to our special jobs newsletter right here.
We cannot provide very short internships (shorter than two months). We also do not host daylong visits for educational purposes (like ‘snuffelstages’ or ‘meeloopdagen’).
