EA SPORTS is one of the most iconic brands in entertainment – connecting hundreds of millions around the world to the sports they love through a portfolio of industry-leading video games.

Building on an incredible 30 year foundation, we're redefining football with EA SPORTS FC - a genre-leading ecosystem of interactive experiences, bringing a global community of football fans closer to The World's Game. Together, we're taking the largest football club in the world to new heights – and this is just the beginning! With more opportunity than ever to innovate and create new, authentic experiences that bring joy, inclusivity, and immersion to fans everywhere, we invite you to join us as we pioneer the future of football with EA SPORTS FC, and welcome everyone to the club!

We at EA Sports have reached the next level of cohesion and craft by evolving into a modern Experience Design practice that brings UX and UI together, understanding that neither exists in a vacuum. The team is passionate and committed to developing an immersive player experience within FC. You will use your creativity, passion and knowledge of experience design, branding, and modern UI/UX practices to develop leading edge experiences for highly engaged Football Club fans. You will work closely with the Game Design Director and your partners from the Experience Design Team, Engineering, Game Design, Production, Art Direction and Creative Direction to create experiences that surprise, delight and inspire millions of players around the world to play. This is an opportunity to do career-defining work and be a part of EA's most successful franchise – EA SPORTS FC.

• Work closely with production and directors to define and prioritize tasks, plan project schedules, allocate resources, and ensure that objectives and milestones are realistically achievable.
• Leverage and evolve an established FC Design System and Visual Identity when crafting visual and interactive solutions.
• Deliver all phases of production from concept to completion (e.g. mockups, hi-fidelity comps, prototypes, production-ready assets in alignment with the product's goals, usability and accessibility standards and brand.).
• Take ownership of design features autonomously and iterate on presentation and interaction to both look pixel-perfect and feel great.
• An eye for detail and visual composition with the ability to create visually stunning solutions in 2D and 3D (e.g. layouts, information organization, typography, color theory).
• Develop and maintain strong creative and collaborative partnerships across disciplines to help further develop the game experience and visual language.
• Find opportunities to improve implementation standards, process, and collaborative workflows.
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills, with the ability to articulate, rationalize, and empathize with user needs effectively.
• Be a mentor and foster a culture of growth and education within the XD team while being a champion for UX UI within the organization.
• Continuously seek trend-setting opportunities to support innovation.
• Passion and interest as well as past experiences with 2D/3D Motion Graphics are a plus.
