You should have experience working with colleagues from multiple different departments to understand and fulfil requirements for the entire build and release pipeline, from the moment work leaves a developer machine to it reaching the player.

  • Communicating ideas, intent, and constraints to both technical and non-technical team members

  • A history of working with Perforce and TeamCity
  • Confident with continuous delivery of updates and content for live games
