ENGINEERING - EPIC GAMES SERVICES

What We Do

Driving the plug-in power behind Unreal Engine 5. We bridge connections for licensees and our own internal game teams to online services. This allows games like Fortnite to utilize a combination of platform online services as well as Epic’s own online services to build cross-platform online features. Login, parties, voice chat, matchmaking, purchasing, cloud storage, and analytics are just a few examples of online features that our Online Game Services team helps games utilize.

What You'll Do

Web Engineers at Epic impact a diverse set of initiatives from end to end. These range from the Epic Games Store (here’s our public roadmap) to Fortnite social experiences; in-game features, and web applications supporting all kinds of community, marketing, and events content.

We also build a variety of products that support other developers, from internal initiatives to third party teams worldwide. These include web portals for core platform services, marketplace and eCommerce applications, and beyond.

  • Showcase your familiarity with industry-standard web engineering practices and guidelines for the entire web development process, including coding standards, code reviews, version control, building, testing, deployment, and monitoring.
  • Effectively communicate with stakeholders, including users, technical teams, and management, to gather requirements, and explain technical designs / features.
  • Collaborate with team members to assess technical viability, test new technology and explore design options.

What we're looking for

  • Deep knowledge of JavaScript, Typescript, React, Node, and GraphQL
  • Thrive as a software architect within agile operating models, including defining a “technology runway”
  • Passion for crafting secure, scalable, and highly available web applications
  • Experience architecting and leading innovative, complex web projects
  • Very strong technical leadership and ability to command respect at all levels of the organization from executives to engineers
  • Experience in collaborating with design teams to design, document and build design systems for scalable and consistent user interfaces
