Graphic Designer

Blizzard Entertainment games don’t just begin with game ideas or end once those games are released. The success of Blizzard is defined both by our games and those who support them every day at all levels and across all offices. Operations teams around the globe support, evangelize and work to improve our games.

As a part of Blizzard’s International organization, the Emerging West (EW) team will search out, prioritize and work with key stakeholders to implement growth opportunities across our international markets. In doing so the team will play a critical role in the development of international business and operational roadmaps, linking growth opportunities to key investments that build upon the success of our games and support Blizzard’s franchise strategies. This team will work closely with global marketing teams to support new products or expansions to market, evaluating and providing guidance on key aspects of publishing strategies, preparing a return on investment analysis, and providing pin-pointed appraisals of new launches or game-critical changes.

We are looking for a talented Graphic Designer to join our ranks. The position will work closely with Emerging West marketing and communication teams, internal franchise holders and art directors.

The ideal candidate will have professional graphic design experience, strong attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the Blizzard franchises.
