    Sr. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Run as far away from Blizzard as fast as you possibly can. Don't even bother applying if you are not a die hard BLIZZARD GAMER. They don't want good software engineers, they want die hard gamers and coding is an after thought. Even casual gamers are instantly rejected. Interviewers are arrogant and rude as well. Had a guy ask me about what I thought made a good SQL design... I answered consistent naming conventions (no reserved words, etc), proper indexes, FK relationships, etc. Normalized data. and the guy stopped the interview and hung up on me!

    A Look Back at 10 Years of the Blizzard Internship Program

    Ten summers ago, we opened our gates and welcomed the very first group of intrepid Blizzard interns onto our campus. Now, a decade on and hundreds of Blizz-terns later, we're taking time to honor the anniversary and reflect on how far we've come together.

  • What fresh hell is this!? The first quarterly Diablo IV update for 2020 is here, with Angela Del Priore sharing the team's approach to intuitive UI design and Candace Thomas introducing a new monster family, The Cannibals, while offering philosophical insight into overall monster design. And one good developer update deserves another: Diablo IV is hiring! Sanctuary is growing stronger with a couple dozen roles across Art & Animation, Engineering, Design, and Production. We hire globally and can assist with relocation & Visa, take a look and apply if you see a fit.
