Razer Seeking Pro Gamer Interns for Design, Marketing, PR

By Published August 22, 2012 at 2:25 pm

The company behind some of the most famous peripherals in gaming - to include the Deathadder, Carcharias, and more - has set its scope on acquiring some new talent for their design, marketing, development, community, e-sports, and PR departments.

While we don't suspect many of you are professional gamers, this is still an important development to take note of: As hardware and gaming companies take notice of e-sports, which has the power to drive our shared industry in new and exciting directions, we'll see them hiring more e-sports pros to direct company design and development philosophy for gaming devices.


Razer is actively seeking interns at each of its nine global locations and has hired pro gamers in the past; DotA pro HyHy recently joined the ranks of Razer, who will begin his work with the company once the DotA International is concluded.

In the company's press release, it stated:

"Given Razer's history of hiring professional gamers, the program is built to give pro-gamers an insight into the industry they love, opening up career possibilities for those interested in working in the industry after completion of the internship. Intern positions will be available at any of the nine Razer offices around the globe but will be limited by the number of simultaneous positions at each location."

In the spirit of e-sports, we will be covering MLG Raleigh's StarCraft 2 competition this weekend, so keep 'em peeled for that!

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
