    <![CDATA[Software Engineer]]> If a game s never just a game to you, you love pushing the limits of what s technically possible, and you also believe that doing the right thing often requires disregarding the rules and upending the status quo, then we d love to talk to you! We re looking for talented, like-minded engineers to join us and help shape the future of gaming.

    Our engineers bring expert-level knowledge of specific technical areas and a broad knowledge across a wide range of domains. We value people who aren t constrained to particular technologies and are eager to learn new things to overcome anything that stands in the way of delivering value to players. We intentionally don t post hundreds of engineering job openings on our website, with specific technical requirements for each, because we believe that engineers don t follow narrow archetypes; instead we want to work with candidates who are interested in joining to identify the area and team where they can have the biggest impact.

    We work in virtually every technical domain imaginable. As a software engineer, you might:
    • Work on a diverse, cross-functional team that is defining the future evolution of a big game, with a big playerbase, and big demands
    • Work closely with artists, designers, and engineers on R&D teams to breathe life into game concepts
    • Build a massive global platform for deploying and operating backend services with low latency and high availability
    • Extend the big data pipeline that turns petabytes of anonymized user data into useful insights on how players behave and help inform decisions to keep game experiences balanced and fresh

    • Delight players in one of hundreds of roles that aren t explicitly mentioned here

    While our engineers come in all shapes and sizes and work with many technologies, we expect every engineer to be:
    • Player-focused: you re a gamer whose passion for games helps you stay focused on initiatives that make the difference to players in and out of the game
    • A threat to convention: bored by what s considered traditional, you constantly push past limits until the status is no longer quo; you don t think outside the box because, hey, there' s no box
    • Focused on team: you find, shape, and cultivate teams that don t just swing for the fences, they jack that (metaphorical) baseball beyond the stars; you help develop the tools and creative atmosphere to shine, but ultimately hold them accountable for making smart calls and delivering capital-V value
    • Seriously playful: you work hard but always leave time for pentakills; whether you re grabbing a game in our onsite PC Bang or rapidly sharing cat GIFs, you make time for daily play in all of its wonderful forms
    • Humbitious: you re ambitious but humble, a state of being summed up by fans of portmanteau as humbitious; always shooting for the stars, you never forgo rounds of feedback from teammates, players, and partners who keep you from
