We are EA
We entertain millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. But making games is hard work. That’s why we employ the most creative, passionate people in the industry.
The Challenge Ahead
We are looking for someone passionate about the fun in games and looking to build their long-term career in the DevOps Engineering domain. If you want to jump on the bleeding edge of virtualisation, microservices and containers and are enthusiastic about the gamer experience, we would love to talk to you. At Ghost Games, the DevOps Engineers closely work with each title the franchise produces to ensure our gamers have the best experience possible in game. This means collaborating with everyone from content designers to Frostbite engine engineers to design a scalable architecture that can support and scale to thousands of users a minute.
As a DevOps Engineer, your job will be to create and maintain the core infrastructure for the Need for Speed franchise. You will have close attention to detail as any mistake could negatively impact our users; have a keen sense of documentation, task management and be very self-driven. You’ll love collaborating and working with other parts of your team, as well as partners in different countries. You may even have some machine learning skills to make our systems smarter to guide our business towards a more efficient future.
Your tasks will include: requirements gathering; architectural tool design, implementation, and debugging; and working on complex problems with artists and other engineers in the domain of tool, pipeline and workflow development in order to improve, simplify or optimize processes. You’ll spend about 30% of your time “in the cloud”, 30% of your time doing reporting, monitoring, and the rest will be collaborating with other teams and innovating what tomorrow’s gamers will experience.
