Senior Software Engineer (Java), Accounts & Commerce - Core
Battle.net Irvine

Blizzard Entertainment has an opening for a talented and enthusiastic senior software engineer to join our Battle.net Accounts & Commerce team!

The team develops the services and infrastructure, that houses hundreds of millions of Battle.net accounts, and handles millions of transactions for the StarCraft, Diablo, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and the Overwatch franchises, for multiple regions around the globe. Have you ever wondered how that spectral mount is represented in our Account DB, or what happens when you make a purchase in Hearthstone? Are you curious about what happens during a game launch where millions of customers unlock access to games, features, upgrades, and more? We're the team that provides the platform that powers all of those features and more.

We primarily use Java, and technologies like Spring Boot, Docker, Consul, Vault, RDBMSs, and more, to deliver a best-in-class platform for game teams, support teams, and web teams. We are the internal hub at Blizzard; we are in every major project and release at Blizzard! We see many high load events, and work on highly scalable infrastructure to meet our project goals!

You will work with a team of talented engineers, to develop scalable and highly performant platform services. You focus on server-side engineering and architecture, framework creation, standard methodologies design and implementation all while thinking ahead to ensure we are focusing on the right features for the next decade years of Blizzard games.
