Build Engineer MAINFRAME INDUSTRIES / Helsinki/Reykjavik

PUBLISHED: February 1, 2024

We are looking for a Build Engineer for our team to develop Pax Dei, a social sandbox MMO. Your mission would be to architect, optimize and maintain the overall infrastructure and build process within Mainframe Industries.

Do you want to take part in creating the game of a lifetime?

At Mainframe, we are building Pax Dei: a social sandbox MMO, a living world where myths are real, ghosts exist, and magic is unquestioned. A world that players worldwide will call their home and where they will craft their stories for years to come.  

Your mission:

Your mission as a Build Engineer would be to architect, optimize and maintain the overall infrastructure and build process within Mainframe Industries to provide our teams with reliable access to the latest builds and resources to be able to develop a next gen cloud native MMO called Pax Dei! All this as a part of a world class team of game developers. 

Your responsibilities:

We are looking for someone to employ their knowledge of build pipelines and take our existing setup to the next level. You will be collaborating closely with our teams to build, deploy and ship Pax Dei internally to our teams and externally to our playerbase. You will be helping our developers to troubleshoot errors and failures in the builds and educate them on how to understand these issues in the future. You will keep up to date with the latest developments in tools and best practices for building and deploying software and look to implement and change as needed.

What we are looking for:

  • You have experience with CI/CD systems like TeamCity or Jenkins
  • You know the internal workings of how to build games in Unreal Engine or any other related engine
  • You have excellent knowledge of scripting languages such as Python
  • You have experience with source control systems like Perforce and Git
  • You are comfortable interacting with members at all levels and disciplines of the company

What is in it for you:

Our Developer Experience team is made up of people that are responsible and passionate about ensuring that our feature and core teams are able to focus on developing and delivering a high quality product without the worry of key systems failing when they need them most or just being inefficient and unreliable. We are here to service and improve our fellow team members day to day lives while working on Pax Dei.

You will join in on exciting times as our MMO starts to breathe life! During Pax Dei Early Access – planned for Spring 2024 – we are also learning from our players and developing new features. Working on a live game implies that you won’t have to keep everything you are working on secret and, most importantly, that you’ll have data and feedback about the features you work on shortly after their implementation.

Our team members are ambitious, approachable, kind, caring, and always ready to improve our ways of working together to bring life to Pax Dei and make our community’s satisfaction our priority. We are a small team working on a challenging project, and, for us, every team member counts; as such, we value transparency in our communication and decision-making processes.

Location and work:

You will join our team and your role is preferably based in our offices in Finland or in Iceland. We are open to discussing remote work but we prefer to stay in the time zones between Helsinki and Reykjavik.

How to apply:

We are happy to hear from you ASAP! Please feel free to reach out to us and tell us about yourself and about your experiences by submitting your application directly to our recruitment tool. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
