Team Overview

At our Crowdstar studio in Burlingame, we believe that there is huge opportunity in interactive entertainment products for women, and Crowdstar’s goal is to build products which engage, enrich and empower them.

With our two top grossing titles, Covet Fashion and Design Home, Crowdstar has developed new ways for users (players) to enjoy fashion and interior design. Not only are we changing how women game, we’re also changing how they discover and shop for everything from clothing to shoes, or furniture to home decor. As a team we are passionate not only about creating fun and engaging games for women but enriching lives outside of the game.

As a DevOps Engineer, you will be responsible for the continuous operation of our systems and games. You should feel comfortable working under pressure and with high uptime expectations. Be able to work with multiple stacks (LAMP, Node,) and be available at a minute notice. You will carry your pager and laptop everywhere and be willing to respond to issues any time of the day. We offer very competitive benefits and a fun work culture with a lot of opportunity for growth.
