Devops Engineer As games begin to become more and more focused on online features, devops engineers become key to creating and maintaining the games infrastructure. Due to the way games are run, each individual user of a multiplayer or online game will have an instance of the game running locally that interacts with web services in the background. A devops engineer is responsible for making sure all of this works cohesively for all the players. Most devops developers will design and build the entire system themselves, either alone or with a team. This role is sometimes referred to as "Network Engineer" or "Web Services Engineer". A devops engineer's key roles are to create and maintain network systems for games with online components and solve problems for the design and development teams by using web services.
