Lead Build Engineer

As the Lead of the Build Engineers Team, you will be responsible for the architecture and technical leadership of the entire Build Engineers infrastructure, and together with your team you will create and maintain a wide variety of internal services that support our Game Development Teams. Additionally, you will also be responsible for mentoring, supporting and offering guidance to your colleagues in respect to their development efforts. Also, and in collaboration with our Game and Engine Technical Directors you will define the roadmap for CRYENGINE deployment and the continuous integration/delivery service, and in consideration of internal projects and release dates oversee its execution. 
The ideal candidate will have a strong desire to eliminate redundancy and minimize human interaction with our systems and will be someone that not only brings that desire, but also enthusiasm and technical creativity to the rest of the Build Engineers Team. 

Relocation & Remote WorkAlthough we believe living close to our studio helps foster team spirit and stronger bonds between team members, we understand that people have different needs and expectations for their place of residence. You have a choice of three location options, allowing you to work with Crytek from anywhere you wish:
1. Come to our modern headquarters in Frankfurt and receive an attractive relocation package and have access to all of our benefits.
2. If you are already living in a European Union member state, we are able to offer you a permanent work contract and allow you to work remotely as an employee from there. 
3. If you are interested in full-time remote work in any other country outside of the European Union, we can offer you a freelance contract arrangement.
