Senior Infrastructure & Devops Engineer

Salary Competitive
We're SYBO, a mobile studio based in Copenhagen, and makers of the most downloaded mobile game in the world, Subway Surfers, with over 2 billion installs - that's a big chunk of the world's population! Loveable characters, vibrant environments and finely-tuned gameplay that keeps you coming back - that's what we're about. We live to bring these imaginative worlds to life, by crafting games and experiences that people love to play and engage with.

We're looking for an experienced Senior Infrastructure & DevOps Engineer to join our Shared Game Services team, and own the studio's infrastructure and DevOps practice, specifically focusing on migrating our on-premise services to the cloud, and unifying our internal studio infrastructure with those of our games.

The Senior Infrastructure & DevOps Engineer reports to the Technical Director, and works closely together with the backend, build tools and IT teams. She/he should have experience migrating enterprise services and applications into the cloud (preferably GCP) and architecting globally available and highly secure region-based cloud instances, integration with existing on-premise systems and services.



This position will:

  • Lead SYBO's DevOps efforts and mature both the studio operations as well as the game development teams.

  • Develop, improve, and thoroughly document DevOps practices and procedures

  • Provide architectural guidance for systems to improve security, scalability, reliability and adaptability of our growing GCP cloud footprint

  • Provide senior expertise on migrating from on-premise services to native and/or hybrid-cloud

  • Work in conjunction with IT, client and server engineering to understand functionality, scalability, performance, security, and integration requirements.

  • Develop and maintain in-depth understanding of the platform, applications, systems, and database architecture.

  • Implement robust instrumentation for monitoring the health and availability of services including fault detection, alerting, triage, and recovery (automated and manual)

You are an expert in the DevOps domain, a well-rounded programmer that is both able and willing to take on tasks from any of these areas. We are a small team and we need everyone to be able to step up and have the ability to handle the majority of issues that could pop up - especially those that might directly affect our players.


We need you to have:

  • Minimum of 5 years of hands-on experience automating and managing cloud and on-premise infrastructure at scale.

  • Deep knowledge of developing and deploying containerised applications, using Docker and Kubernetes.

  • Familiarity with cloud infrastructure design, planning and implementation, preferably on GCP.

  • Working knowledge of setting up and using version control systems like Git and Perforce.

  • In-depth knowledge of at least one modern scripting language (python, etc)

  • Know why security matters and how you minimise vulnerabilities in both the code you write and the systems you design

  • Be fluent in English - both verbal and written

  • And, most importantly: have a strong passion for both making and playing games!

It's a plus:

  • Previous work experience in the games industry or entertainment companies

  • Higher education degree in a relevant field

  • Familiarity with C# and Unity

  • In depth knowledge of networking and protocols



At SYBO we build brands worthy of devotion - we are the sum of all our parts and our staff are the beating heart of everything we make and do.

Our core values are: We believe in Solid Products, we work in a Synced Community, we make our Performance Matter, we are Passionate Colleagues and we do Daily High Fives!
