We're seeking an experienced network engineer to lead the team developing our in-house network backend. If you'd held this role in the past year, you'd have helped create the expansive asynchronous challenge systems and synchronous online multiplayer of Rock Band Rivals, a real-time update and deployment backed for a mobile title, a store backend for the largest downloadable content library in the industry, and support for other unannounced games!
This is a senior, experienced role. As such, you'll have the flexibility to define and extend our (already modern) technology stack. It also comes with a management component; you'll be leading a team of 3-5 network programmers, making sure they're growing as engineers and supporting the company as a whole. This position will report directly to the CTO.
