#WeAreEA and we exist to inspire the world to play.

EA values creativity, pioneering, passion, determination, learning, and teamwork. We mean things like acting with curiosity, speaking up with original ideas, and committing to each other as one team.

Come join us! We're hiring a Configurations Administrator to join EA's Worldwide Customer Experience (WWCE) organization.

WWCE exists to help the world play. We support players across the globe in 13+ languages and value employees that will bring new ideas and perspectives to help make WWCE a great place to be and be from. We celebrate diversity and inclusion and aim to create great experiences for our employees as often as our players. We're looking for people that will come to the office or Zoom meeting excited to work and ready for some fun.

You're a Configurations Administrator.

You know the ins and outs of the CE tech stack and how to leverage the configurable features to positively impact the player experience. You use your understanding of the CE systems and tools, along with your CE and EA product knowledge when collaborating with the product launch managers in preparation for a game release. You will work with stakeholders from across CE to help them better deliver on their goals and objectives by being the vehicle that drives our push for organizational agility through tech.

We're the Platform and Services Team.

We're here to help people (players AND employees) have great experiences with EA.

We're the product managers and system owners of CE's internal tools and processes; we're the user acceptance team for the system deploys. We support the CE organization in sustaining and improving our tools for executing on the operational level while also focusing on the long-term vision for help in EA's network by setting the support strategy for each new game, define the experiences and technology we will build to execute against that strategy, drive the execution of the launch plans, and monitor the health of the experience post-launch.

A typical day in the life of a Configuration Administrator:
