Key job responsibilities
Drive, design, develop and support highly ambiguous and complex generative AI services for games using AWS or local hardware resources.
Collaborate with game team engineers to integrate generative AI tools into developer workflows.
Stay up to date with and analyze the latest advancements in generative AI technology and continuously improve product features where meaningful improvements in cost, scalability, quality, or functionality can be achieved.
Work with other game teams in the organization to expose sharable pieces of generative AI technology.
Consult and contribute to evaluations of other internal or 3rd party generative AI services that could be leveraged by the project or the organization.
Proactively identify and solve problems that affect the quality of life for players, operations, and other developers.
Assess costs (both monetary and environmental) of generative AI features.
Be an advocate for players and developers: Insist on the highest standards, drive to operational excellence, help create functional and engaging customer-centric features.

You thrive in a collaborative environment where your decisions have significant impact and influence.
You are passionate about building game experiences that delight players.
