Company Profile

Activision believes great games start with great people. It has been writing video-game history since 1979, elevating itself to be one of the most influential and successful interactive entertainment companies in the world. Its company's mission is to pursue both creative excellence and commercial success tirelessly, focusing deeply on blockbuster franchises that have redefined pop culture. Activision achieves that through its immensely talented development teams, and the operational expertise of its management, marketing and corporate services.

Activision Blizzard and Activision Publishing are headquartered in Santa Monica, California. Activision Blizzard is the parent company of Activision Publishing and Blizzard Entertainment, providing corporate shared services (e.g., HR, IT, finance, legal, sales and supply chain) for both companies globally. Activision is a global interactive entertainment software leader and the world's largest independent video-game publisher.

The company's  product portfolio includes Activision Publishing's Call of Duty® and Skylanders Universe®, established licensed properties like Spider-Man™ and Cabela's®, as well as Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft®, Warcraft®, StarCraft® and Diablo® franchises.

Military Recruiting Programs

Activision believes military veterans bring unique and distinctive skills to the Activision family, and inherently understand what it means to be all in. It's the reason that the company has dedicated recruitment resources focused on finding the men and women who have served in the armed forces. As the founders of the Call of Duty Endowment, a nonprofit corporation that seeks to help organizations that provide meaningful job placement and training services for veterans, Activision loves to lead by example.

As a proud member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, Activision is dedicated to helping the mission reach its goal of hiring 100,000 veterans by 2015.
