PlayStation isn’t just the Best Place to Play —it’s also the Best Place to Work. We’ve thrilled gamers since 1994, when we launched the original PlayStation. Today, we’re recognized as a global leader in interactive and digital entertainment. The PlayStation brand falls under Sony Interactive Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation.
This internship is for Summer 2019.
The Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) Mobile Application Engineer intern will be a full member of a mobile application team working on feature development of our cross-platform mobile application companion app to the PlayStation PS4 console.
The intern will collaborate closely with other team members as well as engineers within the larger PlayStation Network client and service development organization.
The intern is expected to attend all scrum ceremonies, participate in feature requirement refinement, feature development, feature automation QA as well as the release to market process.

The team is tasked with releasing quality updates to the PS App on a regular basis as well as development new features on the same cadence.
