Job Title:

Technical Lead, Database Team

Requisition ID:

R013202

Job Description:

Would you get excited about creating reliable and scalable online services and features, to be used by millions of players all around the world?

Demonware is an independently-run part of Activision Blizzard. We run every part of the players' online experience, from logging in to matchmaking to climbing the leaderboards, for popular video game franchises such as Call of Duty, Crash Bandicoot and Skylanders.

Our services impact almost half a billion players, we solve big company challenges with a small company feel.

About This Role:

You would be leading the Database team, who are currently responsible for providing a standard database platform for service teams to use. We develop libraries and tooling that allow service teams to manage their MySQL database fleet, and provide core services to allow them to achieve zero downtime in their data layer. We deal with the difficult challenge of making database management and development easier for our colleagues and customers in Demonware and elsewhere in Activision. We have a set of legacy tooling, but are currently adopting Vitess to eventually replace it, and we plan to expand to support other database technologies in future (Cassandra, Redis).

This position offers the opportunity to work as part of a multi-functional team. You will be working with other excellent development and operations engineers on highly challenging problems. You will be included in the on-call rota for technology that the team is responsible for. As well as building large scale systems, we expect technical leaders to be able to mentor and grow others in the organisation, so we are looking for someone who enjoys engineering challenges and the opportunity to pass on that experience to others.

Relocation support, 25 days of vacation and 3 bonus days in December, Free Activision Games, Flexible working practices, Pension, top-tier medical, dental and life insurance coverage for you and your dependents. To read more: https://demonware.net/careers
