Internship Available for FA09!

See Jason Katsoff to apply or for more info

Trion World Network, San Diego location.

At Trion, we're changing everything about the way online games are designed, developed, and delivered by infusing the old, static gaming world with a sense of dynamic, creative collaboration. This applies just as much to the people who make the games as it does to the games we make. We want each person working here to think big, because we give them the chance to do great things. Ambition and individual creativity aren't just encouraged, they're expected.


Already in place is a high-caliber team from the games, media, and Internet industries. We have worked on, developed, and shipped over 100 original titles, including such bestsellers and hit series as Heroes, Might and Magic, EverQuest, World of Warcraft, City of Heroes, Lineage, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Pogo, and Sims. Utilizing our proprietary core technologies, we're hard at work on our first titles to be released in North America, Europe, and Asia.
