Requisition ID:

R005960

Job Description:

“Dedicated to creating the most epic entertainment experiences…ever.”

That’s our mission statement here at Blizzard Entertainment, and for a Reliability Engineer on the World of Warcraft (WoW) team, it’s a way of life.

In this role, you’ll work with engineers and designers to enable our servers in hosting new and exciting content. We’ll need you to investigate and work to prevent service issues so players can play without unexpected interruptions. To that end, you will find yourself digging into complex software mysteries by investigating source code, looking for evidence in logs and server telemetry, and using logical deduction to help us make great decisions.

The WoW team is built on a culture of collaboration, intense creativity, and problem-solving. As a group, we are committed to pushing our exploration of Azeroth to the fullest, and in doing so create a gaming experience like no other. As a reliability engineer on the server team, the work you do will live at the very heart of this philosophy. We’re looking for an engineer with qualities above and beyond engineering. We need a curious and tenacious individual with strong deductive reasoning skills and a strong background in tracking down software problems. We want a person that enjoys working in a group setting; who can speak to engineers, understand a designer’s vision, and explain a problem to someone less technical; someone whose experience in creative environments has reinforced the value of communications, empathy, and collaboration.

COVID-19 Hiring Update: We’ve transitioned to a work-from-home model and we’re continuing to interview and hire during this time. This role is expected to begin as a remote position. We understand each person’s circumstances may be unique and will work with you to explore possible interim options.
