Role description

Cloud Content Delivery is an end-to-end content hosting and delivery platform for live games or applications that require content updates on a regular basis. We provide powerful workflow tools to game and application developers, allowing them to focus their resources on creating great content rather than building and maintaining content delivery pipelines.

We are looking for a backend / devops engineer to join the Cloud Content Delivery team who will help shape the future of the service. As a core individual contributor on a small team, you will help manage our infrastructure and dev-ops for a live service as we scale to reach millions of end users. You will also play a key role in designing technical solutions that focus on system performance and reliability at the largest scale.


  • Help manage our Cloud Infrastructure as we scale and integrate with other Unity products

  • Ensure service scalability and reliability through effective code and data storage design

  • Operate within a distributed team and collaborate with colleagues both local and remote

  • Deliver high-quality, maintainable code


  • Solid programming skills in your favorite language, even if it isn't our own

  • Experience designing, implementing, and testing service applications and systems

  • Knowledge of DevOps methodologies and processes

  • Knowledge and understanding of the challenges that come with building distributed, highly available, scalable cloud based systems

  • Working knowledge of Cloud Infrastructure: GCP, AWS, or similar

Bonus Points

  • Experience with any of our stack (Golang, Postgres, GCP, Kubernetes) is helpful, but not required - we are looking for great programmers that have a track record of solving problems in similar domains

  • Experience with Terraform, Ansible, Puppet, Chef or other comparable tools and frameworks

  • Setting up and maintaining database clusters (Postgres, MySql, Redis, etc)

  • Managing Kubernetes at scale

  • Working knowledge of the Unity game engine
