Game Development Infrastructure Manager

About the job:

Full-time

Netflix is seeking an experienced Development Infrastructure Manager, who will handle a mix of tactical (hands-on implementation) and strategic duties.


The Dev Infra manager will assess the needs of the internal game development studios, and then build ‘paved path’ game development service offerings for the Game Studios.  The scope of this role will involve collaborating with internal stakeholders including IT and Infosec, and will likely lean heavily on cloud-hosted solutions. The successful candidate will ensure the internal studios’ game development efforts are well supported by appropriate development infrastructure.  Possible solutions might be leveraging existing Netflix services or 3rd party services.  After understanding the problem space, they would propose a plan for a DevOps strategy and drive the implementation of the aligned plan (which could include building a team).


The ideal candidate will have experience working alongside and supporting game developers, planning and executing on necessary infrastructure, (especially those around build, deploy, and environment provisioning), and integrating into existing mobile delivery platforms.  They should have experience working with a diverse set of stakeholders (development infra and game teams) to develop a tailored solution for game studios and be ready to dig in tactically where needed.

Areas of Ownership

  • In partnership with first-party game dev teams, provide dependable solutions that allow internal teams to focus on game development and not development infrastructure – especially as it relates to CI/CD strategy
  • Creating a coherent TechOps/DevOps strategy that balances highly variant game team needs with existent Netflix streaming solutions and/or Netflix Game Studio centralized solutions, consolidating only when valuable
  • Driving and influencing clear business strategies around when to (and when to not) move workloads to or from AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.
  • Relationship management with the Netflix Streaming engineering teams and influencing for these topics, including infra, tooling, and security
