Gameplay Design Intern at UDU

Salary DKK 3,000 - DKK 3,000

UDU is an innovative tech and gaming start-up, on a mission to help kids and families be more physically active and have more fun. We dream of a future where gaming moves off the couch and into the world, where mobile games keep kids and families active and engaged - outdoors. That’s why we’ve developed the UDU Console - the world's first console for mobile gaming. 


Who is UDU

With a vision to make kids' and families lives better through active gaming, UDU was founded by the two Danish entrepreneurs Asbjørn H. Christensen and Christoffer B. Christensen.

Today the UDU-team consists of 9 talented people from all over the world. Our Game Developers, Designers, Engineers, and Business experts come from the US, Ireland, France, Iceland, and Denmark. Furthermore, we are working with some of the world’s leading partners in product development and production to make sure that everything lives up to our extremely high-quality standards. Together we’re making a new, healthier, more exciting mobile gaming experience for kids and families.

In 2022, UDU is expanding. We’ve received the funding we need to begin prepping our console for mass production, we are already building the console’s interactive games, and preparing for a huge crowdfunding product launch this year. As the product grows, so do we.  


The UDU Console

The UDU Console is changing the way we game, combining elements of physical and digital play to create brand-new, immersive experiences. 


The Console uses cutting edge technology to create unique and captivating digital interactions with your physical surroundings:

  • Machine learning algorithms track and recognize movements, gestures, and touches,

  • Advanced haptics provide life-like vibration feedback, using custom-designed audio files to imitate physical touch,

  • LED and visual displays create color, light, and graphic feedback, and

  • Deep click squeeze and trigger buttons control the Console and in-app gameplay.


By pairing a console with a mobile phone, UDU is reinventing the way we playsee, and feel games. Not to mention where we play them!


We will be responding to all applications latest 2nd of September and 16th of September and if necessary on the 30th of September as the post ends. We are also possibly looking for more than one intern, depending on factors beyond the job post. Interviews will be arranged, and any questions will be answered as quick as possible through the email correspondence after the respons.
