Job description

The Services team is responsible for Supercell’s data and tools. We gather, process and store multiple terabytes of data a day, and bring visibility to every aspect of our business through dashboards and automated reports. We build the tools and services that allow game teams and their supporting cast to focus on the games. Whether it’s LiveOps tools that control the in-game experience of our 100M+ daily players, player support tools used to solve millions of monthly support requests, Single Sign-On, or the analytics pipeline, we build long-term solutions to make everything at Supercell work.
The ideal addition to the Services team shares an approach that solutions are not just about code. We practice DevOps and believe that delivering end-to-end solutions is the most rewarding and efficient way to get results. To do so, we require people with extensive technical expertise, an ability to work independently, and commitment to follow through on big ideas. When you join the Services team at Supercell, you’ll have the freedom, responsibility, and pressure of being the CTO of your own work.
Do you have experience in cloud environments and developing live systems? Do you understand what it means to support a system with large user and data volumes? Or are these areas that you find interesting and want to work with? Send our application our way! When applying, tell us your earliest starting date—if you're the right person, you can start right away!
