Electronic Arts is an innovative tech company that creates incredible experiences for millions of players around the world. But what matters most is our people who inspire us, and the world, to play. As we bring new forms of entertainment to people around the world, we need innovative, collaborative, diverse and adaptable people to keep making Electronic Arts better.

In your role as Experience Designer, reporting to a Manager, Digital Experiences, you will contribute to a new Web experience on EA.com, which means partnering across game teams, marketing, product management, design, engineering, and publishing to gain understanding and support their goals, always with an eye on quality, consistency, usability, and needs of our players.

Joining EA means joining the team shaping and expanding EA's Web ecosystem; build consumer experiences that power EA's games and allowing more personalized, socially connected, and smooth experiences. We like to say that "we see farther," and are committed to driving innovation to meet player needs today and in the future.

You're someone with a track record for:

  • Successfully delivering multiple digital products such as marketing websites, immersive experiences, native web/mobile applications.
  • Adapting. Determining the best UX approaches based on player feedback and identifying challenges and adapting as you go.
  • Understanding of the product life-cycle and building and iterating on products with large and established user bases.

  • Experience with information architecture, UX, and content strategy concepts and deliverables.
  • Experience with responsive design best practices and designing for the mobile web
  • Using a CMS to build webpages (AEM experience is a major plus)

  • The CMS and publishing teams to ensure the content-heavy features you'll design can be fulfilled by authoring workflows and publishing processes.
  • UXR, CI, and analytics to inform UX strategy and ensure feature optimizations are measurably improving the player experience.

You'll build relationships and work with:

  • Work with other designers to create outstanding web experiences
