For more information on the types of projects please look here.

The Immersive department in London is looking to hire a DevOps Engineer for our growing team. We are looking for somebody to architect, build and manage the infrastructure that enables our developers to create awesome content. If you are passionate about new challenges and are looking to help build cutting-edge immersive XR games and experiences, this could be the role for you! You will help to create infrastructure as code for real-time projects and support live production systems for the continuous testing and delivery of game-like experiences. The software you write will deliver a robust, efficient, and secure infrastructure for the development team. We are looking for someone with strong technical skills, autonomy and a good problem-solving mindset.

This is a full-time permanent role with staff benefits and working on a hybrid work model with some days in office and some days remote.

What you'll do:

  • Creating a robust continuous integration pipeline for game engine projects and software components
  • Authoring and maintaining configuration management for servers
  • Empower the development team by automating time-consuming or error-prone tasks
  • Develop low maintenance solutions to efficiently scale across a variety of project sizes
  • Work with the technical leads to design and define development infrastructure
  • Collaborate with the QA team to facilitate an efficient test environment

Job requirements

What we're looking for:

  • Proficient with continuous integration systems e.g. Jenkins or TeamCity

  • Ability to plan, design and communicate architecture consisting of multiple components

  • Expertise in cross-platform build systems in Linux and Windows

  • Experience with cloud platforms and containers

  • Familiarity with branching strategies and how they relate to the SDLC

  • Experience administering source control systems

  • Windows System Administrator knowledge

  • Strong interpersonal skills and problem-solving ability

You might also have:

  • Experience with games or VFX pipelines for software and assets

  • Knowledge of Unreal or Unity

  • Knowledge of C++, C#, and Python

Framestore is proud to employ extraordinary talent across all genders, races, nationalities, religions, ages, abilities and sexual preferences. We aim to encourage and support all of our current and future employees to achieve their potential. No job applicant will receive less favourable treatment on any basis when applying for a career with us.
