Job Vacancy Background
Work on ground-breaking multiplayer titles, push the boundaries of games technology and virtual worlds, or get to grips with some of the world’s toughest security challenges. If your ambitions are high, we’ll give you the tools, support and culture to take them even higher.

  • You will explore new technologies and functionality of existing systems to help continuously improve our processes.

We'd like to hear from you if you identify with any the following, don’t be put off, this list is long but only to give you a better picture of what technologies we work with:

  • You are very experienced with CI/CD concepts and systems.
  • Familiarity with infrastructure/orchestration technologies (Terraform, Ansible, K8s etc).
  • You are motivated by a desire to learn and to share your knowledge with others and shine in an environment of shared learning.

  • An interest in the inner workings of enterprise platforms such as Google Workspace and Azure Active directory.
