Job Description:

Lead Software Engineer – Server

Soldiers, scientists, adventurers, oddities…engineers! We are the Overwatch team, passionate gamers at heart, and we’re looking for a new hero to help us make Overwatch 2 - the globe-spanning sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed team-based game.

In Overwatch 2, the nations of Earth are under assault. As the omnic forces of Null Sector launch a barrage of surprise attacks around the world, the planet’s governments and militaries prove quickly outmatched—and the remnants of the fearless strike force once known as Overwatch rally to make a valiant stand. Now the world’s heroes must each decide whether to answer the call to reemerge, reunite, and serve as a beacon of hope in a new era of crisis.

We're looking for candidates that shares our values:

This philosophy, along with the Blizzard values of “Gameplay First” and “Play Nice, Play Fair,” has made Overwatch one of Blizzard's most successful games, and it has forged a bond of trust with our worldwide player community that is extremely important to us.

As a server lead on the Overwatch team, you will be part of a talented and passionate team developing world class server technology and experiences, unlocking the potential of our engineers, designers and artists to create compelling and exciting features that will bolster our server infrastructure and keep players engaged for years to come. The ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of the challenges involved with authoring game server features and/or systems, be comfortable leading a team of engineers, and be able to collaborate closely with other disciplines.
