Demonware is a member of the Activision family of studios. We work alongside engineers and creatives at our AAA partner studios and deliver the online and data services required by our massive franchises. We have launched well over 100 games, and our services connect multiple millions of players each day into epic entertainment experiences.
While Call of Duty continues to push us to build bigger and better systems year on year. We also have a strong history of supporting great franchises such as Tony Hawk, Crash Bandicoot, Destiny, Diablo, Guitar Hero, and Skylanders.
Our success comes from our talented and passionate people. Our work environment is welcoming and collaborative, we deliver on time and at scale.
We’re looking for a Python Web Service expert to join our team.

You will lead technical direction and standards with fellow senior engineers on the Storage team and across Demonware. Contribute to our product vision and architectural roadmap and help guide our customers’ plans for the future.
The Storage teams Python services are built on top of Kubernetes, Cassandra DB, Redis, Elasticsearch, Kafka and typically deployed to our own on premises hardware using Ansible, Puppet or git workflows. Knowledge of some of these technologies would be a huge plus.
All our services are accessed from C++ clients which are integrated into Activision’s specific game engines. Integrating our features will be required but don’t worry if you don’t know C++ yet, if you want to learn this is the perfect opportunity!
