Current Open Positions

Services Engineer (Mid to Senior)

System Era is searching for a skilled services engineer to help create and improve the studio’s backend technology stack.

As a member of our online services team, you will be responsible for determining the exact requirements of new services, building those services, and updating older services to fit evolving requirements. This can extend to building full-stack solutions, including writing game code and building internal-facing tools for QA and player support. You have a strong desire to build the “right tool for the job” without over-complicating it. You enjoy taking a large problem and breaking it down into smaller increments of implementation. You enjoy having a wide purview and range of skills that you can apply to these problems.

While we prefer working in a hybrid model, with regular time spent onsite with our team in Seattle, WA, System Era supports a variety of work routines to match the needs of our team, including permanent remote work within the US and Canada.

Compensation package includes salary, benefits with full medical and dental coverage for employee and dependents, 401k with company match, participation in profit sharing, discretionary bonuses, as well as relocation assistance for those interested in moving to Washington state. The base salary range for this position is $120,000 - $145,000 depending on the skills and experience of the candidate. We look for candidates who value joining a team with a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, interests, and viewpoints.

  3. Experience working in multiple programming languages, including at least one C-based object-oriented language (C++/C#/Java/Swift/etc.).

  1. Building, deploying, and maintaining services (mostly in C#) to support the studio’s games.
  2. Building and maintaining test automation for services.
  3. Working on platform integrations for our games.
  4. Contribute to System Era’s overall engineering excellence by participating in technical design discussions and regular engineering team meetings.
