Job Description


The Lumberyard team aspires to help game developers create the highest quality games, engage massive communities of fans, and connect their games to the vast compute and storage of the cloud. We’re looking for pioneers who can imagine and deliver world-class technology for tomorrow’s most celebrated games. If you’re excited about the opportunity to invent and build with the entire sandbox of Amazon’s ecosystem, including AWS and Twitch, we want to talk to you.

We’re looking for an experienced game engineer to join our field engineering team. You will engage with external studio customers of the Lumberyard game engine as they develop the next generation of games. Your role will be one of collaboration & analysis (35%), creation (50%) and instruction & education (15%). Instead of being pigeon-holed into a certain feature or discipline, you will become an expert on all elements of the Lumberyard engine. You will bring into the role a generalist perspective and get to develop and leverage a broad range of game development skills. As an integration specialist on the field team, you will lead the onboarding of customer projects, high priority bug fixes and feature development requested by customers.

You will meet gaming professionals in many disciplines from across the industry. Additionally, as the voice of our customer and their champion on the team, you will have a say in directing future development of the industry’s newest premium game engine. We love customer feedback here at Amazon, and you will be the person with the most direct access to it.
