Company Snapshot

Founded in 1999, Linden Lab develops platforms that empower people to create, share, and thrive within virtual experiences.

In 2003, Linden Lab first launched Second Life, the groundbreaking virtual world enjoyed by millions around the globe, which has since gone on to boast nearly two billion user creations and a vibrant $500 million (USD) economy.

Lindens value a workplace that’s as diverse as our products. As we continue to grow, we remain dedicated to building a company that is rooted in organizational health, strengths-based leadership, and the belief that teams are stronger than individuals.

If you want access to the forefront of virtual words and payment platforms that support the creator economy, this is the place for you. We’ve created space for everyone to find belonging and invite you to come as you are.

Role Overview

We are looking for an Infrastructure Engineer to join our friendly and experienced remote team. You will report to the Manager of Production Infrastructure Engineering, and work on the cloud infrastructure of Second Life, supporting all of its applications, the simulator environments, network, and file storage infrastructure. Ability to work in an infrastructure-as-code driven environment is desired. We produce and maintain a great deal of custom tooling, and the ability to work with and develop that is also a plus. We interact with most every other engineering group in the company and provide guidance and stewardship around Second Life’s usage of AWS.

What We’ll Offer You

The stability of an established company with new startup momentum. An unparalleled opportunity to create relationships, systems, strategy and culture. An environment where your voice will be heard and your impact deeply felt. A sense of belonging where your work is appreciated and rewarded.

Second Life's huge, persistently simulated virtual topography runs 24/7. Our group has a production focus with a light on-call component. We also maintain and develop a body of internal tooling code. You will be given the time and support needed to grow your knowledge of technical areas of interest and advance your skills.
