Senior Software Engineer (Java), Accounts & Commerce - Core

Blizzard Entertainment has an opening for a talented and enthusiastic senior software engineer to join our Accounts & Commerce team!

The Accounts & Commerce team develops the services and infrastructure, that houses hundreds of millions of accounts, and handles millions of transactions for the StarCraft, Diablo, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and the Overwatch franchises, for multiple regions around the globe.  Ever wonder how that spectral mount is represented in our Account DB, or what happens when you click buy in Hearthstone for additional booster packs?  Curious what happens on a game launch night, where millions of customers attend midnight launches, and rush home to claim a key, and unlock access to games, features, upgrades, and more?  Have you added an authenticator or your mobile number to bolster the security of your account?  Well, we're the team that provides the Platform, that powers all those features and more.

We primarily use Java, and technologies like Spring Boot, Docker, Consul, Vault, RDBMSs, and more, to deliver a world-class platform for game teams, support teams, and web teams.  We are an internal hub at Blizzard; we are involved in every major project and release at Blizzard!  We see many high load events, and work on highly scalable infrastructure to meet our project goals!

The senior software engineer will work with a team of talented engineers, to develop scalable and highly performant platform services. The role focuses on server-side engineering and architecture, framework creation, best practices design and implementation all while thinking ahead to ensure we are focusing on the right features for the next decade years of Blizzard games.
