Release Engineer

Do you have an insatiable drive for completion of any task at an exceptional quality bar, whether at an individual or team level? Is "yum" just what you think when something tastes good? Are source control administration commands and monitoring second nature so you can sense questions or disturbances before users even bring them up? Would you see "these servers are supposed to have identical config settings but don't" as an opportunity to do some detective work? Do you even bat an eye at "I need to submit 75k files" or "synching this 3TB branch seems slow"?

As a Release Engineer at Bungie you will be involved in the day-to-day work with administering our source control system. You'll work with other Release Engineers to support multi-site teams and partner with them on their needs to ensure successful development cycles. Your responsibilities will range from handling support requests and analyzing data to running maintenance or scripting needed tasks, although there are always other opportunities where you can have an impact.
