Are you excited about leading a large engineering team to evolve a world-class game to new heights, while working at a company that values diversity, carefully guards work/life balance, and propels positive social change?

We’re looking for an Engineering Director to join the Destiny 2 Leadership Team.  Reporting to Bungie’s Head of Engineering, you’ll lead ~60 engineers, help guide Destiny 2 as a whole, and collaborate on many challenges and opportunities - even beyond engineering.  Hopefully you’ll find it’s also a lot of fun!

With the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, most positions at Bungie are expected to onboard and work from home for a significant portion of 2021. In 2022, most Bungie employees will adopt a flexible schedule working from home part time (outside of positions identified as either 100% onsite or fully remote in WA & CA). Currently only a select range of positions are available for full-time remote work in WA & CA (please review location for details). Prospective employees located outside of CA & WA will need to establish WA state residency within 45 days of a start date. Bungie’s work from home, flexible work schedule, and remote policy is subject to change at the company’s discretion.
