Overview

Are you excited by technology and team building? Do you want to help shape the culture and craft of one of the top engineering departments in the industry?

As the Head of Engineering, you will report to the Chief Technology Officer and be part of the Office of the CTO (OCTO). You will lead the Bungie engineering organization, help shape our technology strategy, and drive craft and management excellence through the engineering department.

The right candidate will foster a happy, engaged, buoyant, and ever learning engineering organization.

With the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, most positions at Bungie are expected to onboard and work from home for a significant portion of 2021. In 2022, most Bungie employees will adopt a flexible schedule working from home part time (outside of positions identified as either 100% onsite or fully remote in WA & CA). Currently only a select range of positions are available for full-time remote work in WA & CA (please review location for details). Prospective employees located outside of CA & WA will need to establish WA state residency within 45 days of a start date. Bungie’s work from home, flexible work schedule, and remote policy is subject to change at the company’s discretion.
