Job Description:

The World of Warcraft team is seeking an engineer to join our Server leadership team. You will work closely with our other server leads, server engineers, and live operations producers to build the future of World of Warcraft server architecture. You will also work closely with other engineering teams, Design, QA, Production, and our Customer Support teams to ensure our servers provide the best service and features to the players of World of Warcraft around the globe.

In this role, you will build and support collaborative connections with the rest of the team, manage and guide the development of server engineers, and help the team establish technical vision and processes. The ideal candidate prioritizes collaboration and service to partner teams, understands server engineering, and wants every engineer on their team to have the best job on Earth. This position will join our three current leads on the Server team.

As we look for the fourth lead on the team, we are excited to be able to consider candidates with less direct experience in leadership roles. If you are an aspiring leader, we would be thrilled to see your application. Don't meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification in the job posting. At Activision Blizzard, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment, so we strongly encourage anyone to apply even if you don't believe you meet every single qualification outlined. We also do our best to ensure all applications received are responded to.

Blizzard Entertainment is a global company committed to growing our employees along with the business. We offer competitive benefits and strive for a healthy work / life balance. We work hard to foster a deeply collaborative and creative environment, a diverse and inclusive employee culture, and training and opportunity for professional growth. Our people are everything, and we are dedicated to creating the most epic entertainment experiences… ever. Join us!

This role is anticipated to be a hybrid work position, with some work on-site and some work-from- home. The home studio for this role is Irvine, CA.
