Corporate Kabam

Kabam mentors are eager to share their wisdom to the next generation of future leaders.

Play. Work. Succeed.

Kabam, Inc., based in San Francisco, sponsors a 12-week summer internship program open to undergraduate and graduate students attending an accredited university. Interns are partnered individually with mentors who are subject matter experts and possess decades of industry knowledge. Kabam mentors are eager to share their wisdom to the next generation of future leaders. After the learning and doing, each intern presents to their colleagues and mentors the projects they worked on during the summer. The "internship presentation event" is one of the most popular features of the internship program, spotlighting interns contributions to the organization.

There is more to an internship at Kabam than working within your department. Learn how your team fits into the big picture through educational speaker sessions presented by Kabam's business leaders. Interns also attend Kabam's monthly all-employee meetings. If that's not enough exposure to the company's vision and strategy, interns join Kabam Co-Founder and CEO Kevin Chou and other C-team executives for an exclusive fireside chat.

Of course, we save time to play and have fun. Kabam wants to ensure interns and mentors experience a memorable summer. Partake in social team building and networking opportunities to build upon your professional and personal development. Challenge your colleagues to foosball, a game of Mario Cart, sing your heart out on Karaoke night, attend a World Champion Giants baseball game or race through the streets of San Francisco in a scavenger hunt. There are plenty of ways to play.

The people of Kabam, together, create a one-of-a-kind work environment. See all the fun by searching #internatkabam

Experience Life at Kabam

We sit in open seating pods to encourage socializing, collaboration and the occasional nerf gun battle. We host happy hours so you can make new connections. Run through the streets of San Francisco on a scavenger hunt with your new colleagues and mentors. Grab a beer (if you are 21 of course) and relax with your mentor while attending a baseball game. Through playing we learn.

noodles

Hungry?

Stop your cup noodle diet. We have 2 lunch menus catered 5 days a week. If you are more of a night owl and like to work pass 7pm, we even feed you dinner. You don't have to worry about going hungry here, maybe just your waistline.
