Working as a Build Farm Engineer within the Build & Infrastructure team, your primary focus will be to maintain, develop and improve the in-house build system, the underlying infrastructure, and related processes. We are looking for an engineer to work with both our AAA projects at Massive, to collaborate and assist within the local studio as well as co-development studios around the globe. The responsibilities include short- and long-term planning and collaboration with Build Engineers in order to achieve next level reliability.
The role is a challenging and exciting position that will demand knowledge across several fields. You need a firm general technical understanding as well as the capacity to cooperate with people with differing needs and priorities. It is essential that you are a great communicator since interaction with other teams is key to ensure high quality.
You’ll work in a constantly evolving tech environment with a range of technologies like CentOS, ElasticSearch/Kibana, SaltStack, gitlab and much more, and you’ll share responsibilities with a group of talented programmers and DevOps engineers, all set on improving how Ubisoft will build and ship games right now and in the future.
This is a permanent position based in Malmö, Sweden, and requires working onsite. We kindly ask you to apply with your CV and message to the hiring manager / cover letter in English. Applications will be reviewed whilst the job-ad is posted.

- Evaluating and integrating new technologies to improve our environment and processes

- Being flexible and providing support for other team members during critical stages of development
- Optimizing the developer workflow by making your DevOps and infrastructure expertise available to team members and others

You as a person
You are service minded and enjoy explaining difficult technical issues in a down-to-earth manner. You think in innovative and creative ways and feel right at home working with systems that see constant change and improvements. We believe that you are observant and understanding, and capable of communicating possibilities and threats clearly whilst driving development forward autonomously. You despise doing the same thing over and over again and will much rather have the machines working for you than the other way around. You can drive change from concept through to deployment and you love adopting and leveraging new technologies. Besides the above we’re looking for someone aligned with our core values and the following skills and experience:
- +3 years of experience working in DevOps
- Version control systems and CI/CD pipelines (Perforce and gitlab)
- Interest in advanced virtualization customization and optimization
- VM provisioning
- Great understanding of networking and storage technologies
- Service deployments using tools like Docker, Ansible and Salt
- Scripting in shell (bash, Powershell) and Python
- Monitoring using ELK, Grafana, Zabbix or others
- Experience migrating to IaC, preferably using OpenStack
