And we make games – how cool is that? In fact, we entertain millions of people across the globe 24/7 with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. But making games and delivering a flawless player experience is hard work. That’s why we employ the most creative, resourceful and passionate people in the industry.

The Challenge Ahead:
Modern video games rely on many different services behind the scenes. From matchmaking, marketplace, and social features to anti-cheat detection, leaderboards, and server-side physics calculations.

The Impact you’ll make:
In a fast-paced world, access to games should be fast too.

Network Engineering will ensure that access to those games will always be there and give the satisfaction of building infrastructure that brings millions of people joy daily. That can only be done with a team of great engineers, some automation, inter-team collaboration and at least a little fun.
