JackBox Games - DevOps Engineer


We have found our niche making games where players use the browser on their mobile devices as controllers. Communication between the web-based controller and the game running on the console all passes through server infrastructure that we develop and operate. You will join our infrastructure team with a primary focus on DevOps to keep our infrastructure running smoothly, but an ideal candidate will also help with development on our server applications.

  • Help develop “Blobcast,” our main server application, including implementing new features, fixing bugs, and reviewing architecture

  • Find and resolve defects and other issues as they come up during development, working with both internal and external QA teams
