An experienced Infrastructure Specialist who knows the game backends from stem to stern?

Competent toolbox to scale high-volume games on AWS?

How do we work?

At Metacore, independence and responsibility go hand in hand. Our small, autonomous teams have full decision-making power over their games and full ownership of their – mostly excellent – results. But topping charts ain’t always smooth.

That’s why we dare to stumble. Failures keep us humble, teach important lessons and get us closer to success. We crave for constructive feedback. It’s the highest form of caring for each other, and for the games we build.

We also like hearing the feedback from our players. We’re great at assuming what could work but only players can prove our hypotheses to hold true. Falling in love with our own ideas is fine as long as players love them too.

Who are we looking for?

Metacore is a team-first game company, looking for an experienced Head of Infrastructure. Our journey has just begun, so you will have a great opportunity – and a great responsibility – in shaping how we go about our game infrastructure.

Naturally, we hope that you already have the skills, experience and ambition to do this better than anyone. But even more than that, we hope you share our passion for creating phenomenal mobile games. In the end, that’s what Metacore is all about.

  • You’ll automate and orchestrate infrastructure primarily on Amazon Web Services
  • You oversee the build, integration, release, and testing pipelines to build and deploy backend applications
  • You monitor, operate, diagnose, and troubleshoot any issues arising in the backend platforms jointly with other team members
  • You’ve got the ability to assess and solve problems, identify root causes and implement solutions based logical and rigorous analysis of data


Requirements:

  • You’re competent in running production environments and managing scalable infrastructure with Amazon Web Services platform, specifically VPCs, EC2, RDS, EKS, Route53, S3, Cloudfront, and Cloudwatch
  • You know how to run infrastructure automation with Terraform
  • You go way back with configuration management tools, such as Ansible, Salt, or similar
  • You’ve got solid Linux system administration skills and hands-on experience with Linux automation and scripting, such as shell scripting and Python
  • You know your way around containerized environments and Kubernetes (specifically EKS variant, functional knowledge of Helm and Helm packaging) and working with Kubernetes operators and CRDs
  • You’ve got plenty of experience with logging and monitoring tools, such as Grafana, Prometheus, Loki, fluentd, Cloudwatch Logs and Metrics
