San Francisco, CA

Do you have a passion for quality software? Do you want to work at a company where customers have real excitement for the products you help create?

At PlayStation, we are looking for engineers to join a global initiative in robust test automation and Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment systems.

We are passionate about both teamwork and technology. We love building the systems that millions of people use and are our own first customers! We strive to be at the forefront of development technologies and are a diverse company with developers on four continents.

We are located in San Francisco's vibrant SOMA district, within walking distance to great restaurants, museums and nightlife. While the position isn't 100% remote, the majority of work can be done from either home or office as desired.

We deliver a variety of different products to the internal organization, which run the gamut from command line tools, pytest plugins to web services.
