Does Blizzard sound like an awesome place to work? Do you want to make it even more awesome?
Blizzard Entertainment is seeking enthusiastic Senior Software Engineers to join our Corporate Applications group in Irvine, CA. You'll help build tools used every day at Blizzard for Game Production, Development, IT, Human Resources, Finance, QA, Internal Communications, and more!
Our engineers are highly collaborative to create epic and efficient applications used by Blizzard employees worldwide. They work closely together to share knowledge and push the department forward by learning from each other's success and failures via group discussions, paired programming, mentoring, and embracing any technique that keeps us sustainably delivering quality software.
In addition to being talented engineers, our senior engineers are expected to spend a fair amount of their time aligning the team, mentoring engineers, and participating in architecture discussions to help make sure we're building the right tools in the most epic way possible.
Senior Engineers work closely with leads and engineering managers to commit to quality and deliver it consistently. They help track metrics so that we can have impactful sprints and they know when to communicate risks.
Our ideal candidate has a track record of delivering reliable and SOLID solutions, has found success (and failure!) with multiple different projects throughout their career, and measures their success through their team. They have a strong background in .NET development, stack testing, & an aptitude for critical thinking and analysis. They eat complexity for breakfast and welcome ambiguity. They have a sense of ownership and responsibility for everything we produce.
