Central Technology Online Engineering Lead

${ timestamp }} · 
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Bellevue, WA

Are you excited to build the services, data, and game security systems supporting many game groups at Bungie? Do you take pride in driving consensus across teams to deliver the best possible outcome for customers? Would you like to work on daring worlds that bring people together, sitting next to inspirational industry talent, at a company that values diversity and is invested in creating an inclusive workplace for every employee, while also maintaining a good work-life balance?

As the Online Engineering Lead you will be leading the Game Services, Game Security, Data Platforms, and Site Reliability Engineering teams in Bungie’s Central Technology organization. You will help game teams across Bungie achieve their dreams by providing them with powerful shared technology and scalable systems.

With the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, most positions at Bungie are expected to onboard and work from home for a significant portion of 2021. In 2022, most Bungie employees will adopt a flexible schedule working from home part time (outside of positions identified as either 100% onsite or fully remote in WA & CA). Currently only a select range of positions are available for full-time remote work in WA & CA (please review location for details). Prospective employees located outside of CA & WA will need to establish WA state residency within 45 days of a start date. Bungie’s work from home, flexible work schedule, and remote policy is subject to change at the company’s discretion.
