Cloud Systems Engineer
IT - Infrastructure Engineering Irvine, California

Blizzard Cloud is dedicated to powering the world's most epic entertainment experiences. To achieve this, we understand that epic entertainment demands epic infrastructure.  Our mission is to provide a world class hybrid cloud with global reach. We focus on technologies that make Blizzard efficient, consistent, agile and portable across private and public cloud. We empower rapid iteration and rapid delivery - everywhere our game developers and player community need it.

In pursuit of our mission, we run one of the largest private Openstack clouds in the world across seven geographical sites. Operating at this scale comes with challenges. A core value of Blizzard is to learn and grow, so as we solve and overcome these challenges, we are compelled to share our solutions. To that end we contribute to many Openstack projects including Magnum, Senlin and Designate. While we continue to scale and grow an awesome private cloud, our strategy for the future is hinged upon multi cloud. We value public cloud for functionality, reach and scale when it makes sense. The agility offered by multi cloud has helped realize many successes.

As we look to our current and future plans, we have a need to increase our engineering capacity to ensure success. We are looking to hire a Cloud Systems Engineer. This role will be focused on all operations and engineering aspects of our multi cloud environment. This is a great opportunity to learn and grow with a strong engineering team, owning and operating a complex and challenging set of technologies.
