Gearbox is looking for a talented Systems Engineer to join our IT Engineering team.

This candidate will join an agile team supporting the entire studio. You'll build, test, and deploy a suite of services, then make improvements and do it all over again. The services you support will be stable, secure, and performant. You’ll be friendly and eager to dive into any problem thrown your way. You’ll be technically sharp, get technical concepts at their core, and go beyond comfortable, “same old solutions.” You'll own your work top to bottom, front to back, and never throw it over a wall. You'll rarely settle for the default settings. You’ll think automation first and manual second, using the right technology to solve the right problem. You're enthusiastic, recognizing there are any number of areas in which you can make an impact. You'll be a self-starter and be willing to handle all manner of tasks with a positive attitude and a minimum of hand-holding. This position will require you to carry a mobile device and will occasionally require after-hours and weekend work.

This position is open to remote work in certain states.
