Job Description

At our core, Electronic Arts is a game maker that connects hundreds of millions of players from around the globe to some of the world's greatest games.

These initiatives include: EA Access, our cross-platform subscription currently on Origin, PS4, Xbox One and soon on Steam: Origin, EA's gaming service on PC; and a host of other consumer experiences and strategies to connect friends across platforms and within our games.

In your role as Intern Software Engineer, you will be responsible for designing and implementing web applications and services for a digital distribution platform, which means working with a diverse team to improve workflows for both internal and external customers, while always keeping an eye on quality and innovation. As part of the broader software engineering group you will be a key contributor to the EAX team based out of EA Still Creek in Burnaby, B.C., Canada.

Joining EAX means joining the team shaping EA's subscription services now spanning three major platforms; building consumer experiences that power EA's games and enabling more personalized, socially connected, and frictionless experiences; and expanding our platforms across web, PC, mobile, the cloud and beyond so our players can get into the games they want to play and stay connected while playing. We like to say that ''we see farther'', and are committed to driving innovation to meet player needs today and in the future.

• Highly familiar with JavaScript, NodeJS, ReactJS, and Git
• Familiar with agile software development cycle and Scrum ceremonies
• Experience with front-end development or UX is a bonus
