Evaluating, designing and developing tools and technologies to help our game teams and increase their productivity in all game development disciplines
Ensuring our tools are technically robust, compatible and scalable yet easy to maintain
Working closely with our teams and external partners to ensure our production workflows are fast, well automated and robust
Finding new and exciting ways to improve game development and produce future-proof long-term solutions

Commitment to code quality, documentation and testing procedures
Proactive self-starter who’s not afraid to take calculated risks, think outside the box, and is constantly finding ways to improve and optimize
