As a Backend Engineer at Embark you will be a game maker, building a sustainable foundation for the games we produce.
You’ll be an integral part of a highly creative continuous integration team and together we’ll help our developers make awesome games with minimal hassle. Your role is to provide experience and solutions in the backend and infrastructure space with a focus on workflows, build pipelines and content delivery. As our game is distributed between game client, game server and in the cloud, you’ll work together with your team to figure out which parts of the problem to solve in which location. We work on a broad tech stack. Our backend systems are written in Go for the most part, our tools are in Rust and since the game is built in Unreal we also work with Unreal C++.
At Embark we believe in creating smaller teams of well-aligned experts that can be trusted to create games and keep them running.
Example of responsibilities
- Collaborate and work closely with fellow software engineers and technical directors
- Build and improve services, features and tools to improve build workflows and content delivery
- Continuously improve our engineering practices
- Make sure your code adds a great amount of value to your colleagues
We would love if you have
- A passion for interactive experiences, games and new technologies
- A solid understanding about distributed systems and experience building them
- A solid understanding about Site Reliability Engineering practices and what it takes to keep services running smoothly around the clock
- The ability to be a great team player with good communication skills
- A good grasp of performance, optimization and data structures
- Professional English communication skills
At Embark we offer competitive salaries, passionate colleagues to share knowledge with and much more, but most of all we invite you to take part of a journey into the unknown, to build creative, surprising and beautiful experiences together.
We welcome game makers of all sex, class, colour, age, gender identity, education, religion, opinion, culture, nation of origin, language, sexual orientation, shape, size, and ability.
Did we leave anyone out? Well, we welcome you, too! We think that the gaming industry is made better when everyone has a seat at the table.
Be yourself at Embark and make games while doing so. Please apply with confidence. We can’t wait to hear from you (in English)!
