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.
At Improbable, we’ve been venturing into unexplored territory for over a decade, seeking new ways to connect people and amplify their lives. We’re shaping virtual worlds of unprecedented scale for the gaming, web3, defence, and related sectors, creating world-changing technology from Morpheus to M2. With us, you’ll tackle questions that no one else is asking and find answers that define the future.
 
We’re leading the way in defining what the metaverse can be. This is where you get to explore interconnected, immersive, exciting worlds that have never been seen before and where you decide what the future looks like. Are you ready?

Your Opportunity:

  • Hosting blameless postmortems to share learnings, discover gaps, embrace transparency, and improve reliability across our services
  • Employing your systems knowledge to triage problems and tune resource usage
  • Running large scale load tests to find scaling bottlenecks in our games’ architectures.
  • Working with game studios to define robust rollout processes into our production environments
  • Championing automation to reduce toil and increase development velocity
  • Building Terraform configs to manage infrastructure in public clouds and bare metal servers
  • Supporting and improving build pipelines
  • Optimising the process to deploy changes from source control to players
  • Applying everything-as-code methodologies across configuration, infrastructure, orchestration, and elsewhere
  • Being part of an on-call rotation to assist finding a resolution during incidents

Why You're Made For This:

  • Love to solve novel and exciting problems
  • Dislike solving the same problems over-and-over- so you automate or eliminate them
  • Are inspired to make everyone's job easier by improving workflows
  • Are comfortable digging through metrics, logs, and whatever other information is available to triage and fix an incident at any time
  • Strive to be better, smarter, and faster tomorrow than you are today
  • Enjoy trying new technologies to improve what we're doing today
  • Naturally spread the philosophies and practices of DevOps to others
  • Like to collaborate with others to solve problems, share knowledge, and provide feedback
  • Can self-assess the needs of a system or team, and make a case to prioritize that work
  • Relish working with software, network, cloud, and systems engineers to solve problems across all tiers of the stack
  • Help your peers succeed as much as you can
Everyone brings different experiences, perspective, knowledge and skills that makes each one of us brilliant. You don't have to meet all the requirements and experiences on this job advert to apply for and be successful in this role.
