Position Title: Software Engineer II
We are DICE
DICE (EA Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment), the award-winning studio based in Stockholm, Sweden, is best known for creating the phenomenally successful Battlefield franchise, the Battlefront franchise, and the innovative game Mirror’s Edge.
We work through our 4 guiding values: Passion with Purpose, Creative Innovation, Everything Quality, and One Community. We recognize that our people are the backbone and driving force to our creative products. As such, we are dedicated in providing everyone the ability to express, learn, and be their very best with a common cause.
The AI Software Engineer in Test role
At DICE we take the quality of our software very seriously. The Quality Verification Engineering group is comprised of quality analysts and software engineers who specialize in advanced test automation tools and techniques. Their work allows us to take the testing of our games to the next level and scale our testing to the demands of the millions of players who enjoy them.
In recent years we have pushed the envelope in test automation by developing and deploying agents that can play our games. We are now able to have fully automated multi-player test cases for games like Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield V with bots that play the game autonomously. We are now ready to expand this effort across other titles, as such we are looking for a software engineer with experience in game AI development who can join our team. The field of AI-driven testing is still new at EA and given its potential, there is a lot of creative work that can be applied to this field.
What skills do we look for?
- MSc in Computer Science or equivalent experience.
- Extensive knowledge of C++.
- Experience of game development — focused on AI and gameplay.
We are looking for a highly motivated person passionate about AI. There will be several groups and teams in EA to collaborate with, meaning we also need someone with good communication skills and an open-minded and creative attitude to reaching their goals.
Some good to haves:
- Knowledge of automated testing systems and techniques.
- Experience with machine learning-based techniques for AI.
- Experience shipping game AI.
What’s in it for you? Glad you asked!
At DICE we take care of our staff and have done so during our steady growth over the last decade. In addition to a great benefits package we offer our employees 10 EA games per year, massage every three weeks, a variety of sports activities (yoga and cross fit to name a few) and health care allowance. We have a collective bargain agreement with Unionen and Sveriges Ingenjörer and also provide our employees with occupational pension.
We value our employees’ personal lives. A good work-life balance is something we practice and maintain even during high-intensity periods.
We look forward to receiving your application!
