Our client is a well-known and long standing UK Games Studio, with a back catalogue of great titles. The Deployment Pipeline team is a small, empowered team with big dreams. They’re responsible for reducing the time it takes between deciding to make a change to having it available to players. They enable the studio to experiment and test hypotheses through an effective feedback loop, in a reliable, quick and sustainable way.

  • Provide a world-class development environment, scalable pipeline and infrastructure that enables the team to develop, experiment with and deliver high-quality features quickly and with confidence.
  • Solve the complex problems and challenges of developing games at scale, such as continuously optimising our commit stage without sacrificing stability and quality.
  • Help run part of our deployment pipeline off-premises.


Required Skills:

  • Have several years’ experience in software design, programming and debugging skills in, possibly, a range of languages.
  • Be enthusiastic about modern development techniques and be demonstrably keen to apply them to games.
  • Love to do hard things and develop simple tools and processes so that everyone can do those hard things.
  • Have experience in at least one of these areas:
  • Implementing and maintaining Continuous Integration systems
  • Software configuration management tools
  • Managing version control systems
