About the team
An engineer in our team works with a global infrastructure that has a great impact on millions of players. To guarantee the best experience possible, we manage and maintain tens of Kubernetes clusters spread around the world and connected to each other. We are on the cutting edge of open-source infrastructure technology. We adopted Kubernetes in production a little after the project was launched. Today we use technologies such as Cilium in our network stack.
We handle billions of logs daily and have hundreds of nodes and thousands of containers to serve more than a million requests per minute. We know this number will only grow, and we're looking for engineers that can help with the challenges of provisioning and operating infrastructure at a large scale.
