Multiplayer games are the city-center of digital communities today, and online platforms are the skyscraping feats of engineering that make them possible. Gamebreaking Studios is an experienced team of architects, engineers, and planners working together to build those platforms and fuel the growth of our favorite pastime. Whether a million players are crowding into an indie darling, a planet full of fans are eagerly awaiting features in a AAA title, or we're cooking up something new in our back room, our engineers are called upon to make it all happen.

Gamebreaking Studios is looking to expand the team for our new custom build product, Bespoke CI. We are one of the few teams providing studios with a fully managed build and deployment pipeline that allows them to build and launch their games on Gaming Consoles, Mobile, and PC. As a member of our Build & Deploy engineering team, you will be working on a variety of game titles to automatically build and release games across multiple game engines, such as Unity and Unreal. We focus heavily on automation, with Configuration and Infrastructure as Code as core components of how we work.

As a Build Engineer working on a new bleeding-edge CI product, you'll have broad opportunities to grow professionally. You may be writing Infrastructure as Code with Terraform and Ansible one day, while the next debugging why a customer's game occasionally fails to build, then creating a framework to automate game testing in Unity another day. For those that enjoy the problem-solving aspect of engineering, this role will be a great way to challenge yourself. This is a full-stack role and you’ll be pivotal in shaping our codebase and infrastructure decisions.

We are prepared to craft the role around the right person, whether you’ve been programming for two years or for twenty, and we encourage you to apply even if you do not meet all of the skills listed here. We understand that your qualifications may shine through in different ways and can be based on unique perspectives and experiences.

Gamebreaking Studios is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We celebrate diversity, and are committed to maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for our team.

Notes for non-US citizens

…living and working in the US

Gamebreaking Studios is an E-Verify employer and will consider candidates for this position, such as F-1 visa holders with OPT or OPT STEM-extension work authorization, who are authorized to work in the US. US work authorization is a prerequisite for candidates who intend to live and work in the US while working for us. As such, Gamebreaking Studios will not sponsor US work visas (such as H-1B visas).

…living and working outside the US

This position is open to candidates living and working in North and South America. Applicants must be fluent in English, willing to work according to US time zones (must be available 8am - 3pm Pacific Time), and have a strong, stable internet connection conducive to remote work and video calls.
