  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Implementing and maintaining Continuous Integration systems
  • Software configuration management tools
