Localization Intern

Supercell is a mobile game developer based in Helsinki, Finland, with offices in San Francisco, Seoul and Shanghai. Since their launch in 2010, they’ve brought five games to the global market – Hay Day, Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, Clash Royale and Brawl Stars. Their goal is to make the best games – games that are played by as many people as possible, enjoyed for years and remembered forever. To achieve that goal, they’ve created the best possible teams and given them the freedom and independence that are core to Supercell’s success. Now they are looking for a future project manager / leader to start their career as a Localization intern. Could that be you?

Supercell is now offering a perfect chance for you, a future Project Manager / Leader, to get to know the world of localization and to take your first steps towards your dream career as a Localization Intern!

Supercell’s goal is to expose you to a wide variety of localization and translation-related projects so you can understand what it is like to work as a Localization Manager or as a Project Manager with a company like Supercell.

As a Localization Intern you will be mainly helping and observing Supercell’s Localization Manager and the external translator team’s Project Managers in their day-to-day operations. You will be exploring new tech solutions and participating in solving various requests related to game texts, support materials, community texts, marketing campaigns, game subtitles, scripts and voice overs.

You should however be primarily based in the Helsinki metropolitan area as the position requires active presence at Supercell’s office. During your internship you might get a chance to travel to Dublin to meet the translator teams face-to-face (depending on the covid-situation).
