Does Blizzard sound like an awesome place to work? Do you want to make it even more awesome?

Blizzard Entertainment is seeking enthusiastic Software Engineers to join our Corporate Applications group in Irvine, CA. You'll help build tools used every day at Blizzard for game production, IT, QA, communications, operations control, and more!

Successful Engineers in Corporate Applications collaborate with designers, researchers, admins, and program managers to create epic applications used by employees worldwide. They readily share knowledge and push the department forward by learning from each other. They have a generative background in .NET, unit testing, an aptitude for critical thinking, and aren’t afraid to debug foreign code. The Corporate Applications team must be responsive to changing and emergent business needs. Our portfolio is large and diverse, and often has unknown lifetime so it’s crucial to ask the right questions and be ready to pivot.

We strive for applications to be clean, simple, stable, and sustainable.
