Build and Configuration Engineer, King Tech
Do you enjoy working closely with development teams in order to design and implement shared build systems?Choosing, using and improving the right tools for the right projects and releases is what your role will be all about!Our purpose? Developing our Unified Platform to help the King organization build games in a super-easy way on a global level (on 260 million devices)! We envision that all source code ever produced by any team within the Kingdom should be available to anyone with just a simple command. Want to be part of our journey?

Your role within our Kingdom
As our new, fun and friendly Build & Configuration Engineer, you will be responsible for building and maintaining the systems and tools necessary to have robust and efficient continuous builds for our teams. We are continuously improving our ways of working, and you will be part of setting standards, guide and support developers on how to use our common development infrastructure. The development teams each own and write their own builds, and need your guidance to make sure the tools and systems are used consistently, optimally and keep up as technology evolves. You'll get to dig in to build systems, automation, source control, versioning, continuous integration and rapid deployment, working closely with the development teams. Sound like the perfect saga?Being part of a fluid, techy and inclusive environment means that together we celebrate releases, arrange knowledge sharing sessions (Fika & Learn!), play games (of course!), and tons of other fun activities (like robot building challenges, for instance).

Skills to create thrills
Are you that kind of person who has the desire to learn, experiment and innovate? Do you consider yourself to be a collaborator who can coach and support your team when setting up and using CI, versioning and build systems? Groovy!

Scripting in languages like Python and Groovy

Managing and maintaining Linux, Windows & Mac systems

Version control using multiple source control systems, eg.


A great saga needs all sorts of heroes
Making games is fun! Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. We design games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all sorts of people from all kinds of backgrounds to bring them to life. Truth is, we simply can't expect diversity in our players and originality in our games without first nurturing it in our people. A great saga needs all sorts of heroes. And that's it.

We're Seriously Playful
Officially, we're a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world. Unofficially, we're a serious business that's not afraid to have fun. Every day at King, we mix intuition with logic, art with science and magic with mathematics to create the games the world loves to play. Together with our parent company Activision Blizzard, our mission is to bring moments of magic to everyday life. If you think this is something you can help us achieve, let's talk.
