Infrastructure Engineer, Atlassian
Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to critical and player acclaim. As the most played PC game in the world, over 100 million play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.
We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. Like us, you take play seriously; you’re passionate about games. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints.
That's where you come in.
As an Infrastructure Engineer on our Atlassian team, you'll be part of a technical team building and maintaining all things Atlassian at Riot Games. From Confluence to JIRA to Service Desk, you'll help drive and develop strategies geared towards meeting Rioters' delivery and knowledge sharing needs. Automation, availability, performance, reliability and security will be your watchwords. You'll develop new solutions (and streamline aging processes) to solve the complex technical problems, working in a self-guiding, cross-functional team with other humble but highly skilled individuals.
- An Atlassian ace: you believe JIRA is the way of the future, and you want to bring people there; you've worked with Confluence, JIRA, and Service Desk; you're ready to be like Atlas and carry the weight of Atlassian on your shoulders.
- An automator: you realize that automation is the key to scaling. You've made data centers hum with Chef (or similar) and can script Bash, Groovy or Python, or all three. You've similarly grokked, deployed, and supported applications across various tech stacks and multiple regions; you're familiar with the core programming concepts and paradigms and have used one or more modern source control management tools.
- A veteran: for 2+ years, you've built servers of all types: bare metal, in the cloud , in containers, and you've kept an online production environment humming. You have experience running beefy systems and you know your way around Linux operating systems.
- A communications guru: you dig deep in conversations with other teams to uncover their fundamental needs, getting to the root of the problem in order to provide a perfectly tailored solution.
- A tech geek: you keep your craft sharp via conferences, tech blogs, and participating in the community. You tinker with technology even when you're off the clock, and you believe that given enough time, you can automate anything.
- Adaptable: you're able to rapidly change direction when priorities shift, stay focused on the most relevant issues and can evolve and shift to meet them as needed.
- DevOps: you believe devops is a state of mind and you operate with total ownership. You recognize the value of iterative development and the buck stops at you for quality and support of what you deploy into production.
- Player-focused: you love playing video games, so you know that one of the worst feelings in the world is discovering that the server's down. You'll strive to keep our Atlassian stack infrastructure humming, so that doesn't happen for Rioters.
- Be the go-to resource for all things Atlassian at Riot Games, working with teams across the company to drive adoption and understanding of Atlassian solutions
- Automate and manage multiple Atlassian environments in AWS using modern configuration management and infrastructure provisioning tools
- Leverage existing relationships with current tech partners to unlock the full potential of their respective solutions within the Atlassian stack
- Work with our project management discipline to streamline tooling across the organization
- Design creative and out-of-the-box solutions to complex day-to-day problems for Rioters, so nothing stands in the way of delivering a great gaming experience to players
Don’t forget to include a resume and cover letter. We receive a lot of applications, but we’ll notice a fun, well-written intro that shows us you take play seriously.
