Closed – Job – Game Programmer
EA was founded over 25 years ago by individuals with a deep passion for making games. Many things have changed over the years as the gaming industry—and the company—has expanded immensely, but we are still driven by the same passion for developing, publishing, and distributing the world’s best games. Our history has been one of great success, and our future looks even brighter. Gaming has come a long way from Pac-Man & Space Invaders to modern EA Favourites like Burnout, Battlefield, Mercenaries, Dead Space, Spore, FIFA, Madden, Need for Speed and the world’s most successful game franchise, The Sims. Fuelled by our talented staff at locations right across the Globe we are united in our passion to continue shaping the future of interactive entertainment. Together we can make a difference.
Software engineers (programmers) are an essential part of the game development team. They bring the vision of the artists and designers to life. They design and write the computer code that runs and controls the game, incorporating and adapting any ready made code libraries and writing custom code as needed. Programmers deal with ever more complex problems including working on creating realistic Artificial Intelligence; believable Physics; delivering a smooth online gaming experience. Programmers also test the code, fix bugs, and develop customized tools for use by other members of the development team. Due to the complexities of game development, engineers tend to specialize in specific areas of programming.
