Permanent | Full Time
Senior AWS DevOps Engineer (UK + EU) – Contract (Remote)
At Roll7, we create exciting and critically acclaimed video games - including the BAFTA-winning OlliOlli franchise. Innovation, freedom, and a real sense of fun are at the heart of everything we do, from creating award-winning original IPs to the everyday business of running our unique remote workplace set-up.
Being a remote studio - our employees work from home nine days out of ten (pre-Covid) – which allows us to offer a high degree of freedom and autonomy to our motivated and creative staff. Everyone at Roll7 can work in a way that allows them to balance impressive workplace achievements with their own responsibilities at home.
Fortnightly meetups in our London office, combined with a robust online communication system, mean that we still retain all the positives of a welcoming and friendly office environment - without the downsides of a long and expensive commute. After all, most of us would rather be at home with our families and pets (or our game consoles) than crammed onto an overcrowded commuter train or stuck in traffic.
We love to give every employee a chance to play and contribute to the games we make, we love giving people the freedom to pursue their own path to success, and we hate crunch.
Check out our website for a complete list of staff benefits and more details on our company culture.
We are looking for a passionate Senior AWS DevOps Engineer to take our prototype service and expand, evolve, secure and optimise for a global user pool of 5,000,000+.
