Requisition Number: 155881

Position Title: Data Scientist II

External Description:

Senior Machine Learning Engineer

Here in EA's Data Science group within Global Analytics and Insights, we're always looking for new members to help expand our horizons, to move our communal thought process. This is a team that's as likely to collaborate with game designers and producers as they are data engineers, so versatility, persistence, entrepreneurship, and passion are keys to becoming a successful contributor. We exist in a world where tasks and measures aren't easily defined by

product managers or scrums and where a project’s cadence can have defined deadlines or be as vague as knowing a game's possible launch date years in the future, so our data scientists and machine learning engineers must have strong organizational skills.

The Challenge:

Over the history of our team we have had impact on EA’s games by our forecasting, modeling and analysis. As we move into the future we are taking a more direct role in affecting our games by developing complex and advanced personalization and recommendation systems. To support our further efforts we are looking for our first Machine Learning Engineer.

Who we are looking for?

You are someone who is above all persistent, adaptable and eager to learn on the job. You have an engineering mindset always trying to strike a balance among performance, flexibility, and stability in systems. You enjoy collaboration, open to ideas and generous in sharing knowledge with others. We have a strong team of Data Scientists building models and you can work with them to build and help handle deployment systems for our models. You will oversee and help establish the architecture and drive the technical implementation for our model deployment system which will need to be flexible, maintainable, adaptable and scalable. You will use the latest cloud technologies to drive the system and

this project is greenfield, there is no legacy implementation to maintain.
