Game tech

Our engineers at Improbable Multiplayer Services (IMS) are changing how online games are made, operated and played. Join them and be part of a team that’s made a meaningful impact on some of the biggest games around. You’ll address the toughest engineering challenges, co-develop with world-class studios, and work on technology that challenges the limits of the possible. And along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to redefine those boundaries.

At Improbable, we believe that the next revolution in entertainment and society will come from massive virtual worlds. They’ll create new economies and opportunities globally, changing not just how we play, but how we work and relate to each other. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to build the next generation of technologies for online multiplayer games and simulations.
At Improbable, you’re surrounded by people who want to improve everything and everyone around them, and who compel you to improve yourself. We’re motivated by the fulfillment of solving hard problems to achieve something profound and transformative.
Your Mission
As a Lead Security Architect at Improbable you'll be responsible for working on tougher, more complex problems, bringing deep technical knowledge to multiple teams. You will have worked in places that support large numbers of users and understand how to get us there and can articulate the differences between those systems and our requirements.
You'll be focused on enabling our colleagues and customers to create their Metaverse with M2 Safely, scalably and effectively with our platform and services. You’ll grow other engineers and the wider business in the appreciation of security as a business enabler and a shared concern for all. Using your experience with product and cloud security, you will play a pivotal role in shaping the technical strategy for both platform and product security, as well as handling security incidents, whenever they occur. You will use your experience to help shape our platform architecture and allow Improbable to build safe and secure products.
Working on existing critical services to the business, you'll find ways to extend and improve the security aspects of our product offering. You’ll be involved both from early ideas (identifying gaps in designs) through to deployment and long term usage for a service or solution. 
Working cross-functionally across multiple teams, you’ll become an evangelist for all things security related, aiming to foster and encourage a culture across the business that security is important to everyone, and why. You’ll take opportunities to promote this culture where you find it, from your work on pull requests to direct interactions with engineers. 
You’ll bring your experience to quickly grasp the security landscape here and develop a shared prioritization with key stakeholders to allow them to understand the importance of the work you advocate for while understanding other business pressures.
