We Are EA

And we make games - How cool is that? In fact, we entertain millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. But making games is challenging. That's why we employ the most creative and passionate people in the industry.

Fly your starfighter against the Empire. Score the winning touchdown. Yup - It's the coolest job on the planet!

The Challenge Ahead:

Come act with the curiosity and courage it takes to experiment and lead. Partner with finance and business teams at EA not just as a ''trusted advisor'' but as a strategic influencer. We help our business partners accomplish their business objectives within their financial constraints. Come prepared to articulate the ''why'' behind the numbers as you distill complexity and promote transparency. You'll work independently and also with finance and business partners across various service lines within the CTO organization.

• Projects – organize and analyze large amounts of data to provide relevant insights to leadership on CTO wide projects
• Budgeting and forecasting - work with partners to forecast operating expenses to best meet goals and help them stay on target

We are pioneering the future of FP&A by using technology in exciting ways! We want you to share our passion for analytics (descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive). You will learn and apply business intelligence and visualization tools like Power BI and Tableau, make improvements and provide analytics using Advanced Excel (can perform complex functions) and Visual Basic skills. We encourage you to be creative, learn new technological tools and demonstrate an ability to apply these to provide new insights, improve existing processes and make life easier for everyone you support.

What's in it for you? Glad you asked!
