Game Services Engineer

Lead a dedicated team in the development of an innovative software architecture to accelerate the delivery of high-fidelity, highly scalable synthetic environments.

Your work will directly enable billions of interactions within our synthetic environment to scale, resulting in a high-fidelity immersive environment unlike any ever imagined.

Our vision is to build a platform that enables billions of interactions in a real-time environment. Join us, and you’ll usher in a new category of human interaction while solving exceptional challenges that you won’t find anywhere else.

As a Game Services Engineer, you must be a champion for DevSecOps, bringing modern software best practices to classified programs. You must understand the balance of culture and technology that leads to successful DevSecOps teams.

The right candidate will be assertive yet open-minded while leading a team of dedicated software engineers. The right candidate will be familiar with cloud-scale software development (i.e., MMO architectures) and real-time gaming technology.

In this role, you will ensure the architecture delivers performance, reliability, and scalability. You will develop plans, define architecture elements, and serve as a trusted consultant in all aspects of software development, including security and IT. Prior to software development efforts, you will establish the team’s software engineering practices and standards. Outside of the software development team, you will interface with client leadership, industry partners, and other external clients. You must continually maintain an awareness and understanding of cutting-edge software development updates through academic research, conference participation, and industry forums.
