External Description:

We are EA

We entertain millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. But making games is not easy. That’s why we employ the most creative, passionate people in the industry.

The Development and Release Engineer Role

Development and Release Engineering is the intersection of DevOps, Release Management, Build Engineering, and Production Support. We take care of everything between a developer or creative's desk and the console of a player in their sitting room. We run services to support development teams around the world. We debug why a level is not able to build - and who is best equipped to fix that. We are the superusers of Perforce and git, and we're the experts at shipping games. We write our own technology when we have to, but prefer using well-known open source software. We promote EA to ship great games.

DRE is the global organisation for Development and Release Engineering at EA and you will collaborate with other teams in Europe and beyond, to spread knowledge, share technology and best practice. We are involved in most complex technology conversations, so communicating is something you'll get lots of practice with. You'll collaborating with Senior Engineers, Technical Directors, Technical Artists, and Systems Engineers.

People come to us with complex loosely-defined problems and ask us to turn them into solutions. Sometimes this means we're collaborating on problems outside our knowledge area, which requires us to learn new things quickly and grow in uncertainty.

We're a small team with a great deal of trust, which means you'll learn many new technologies and join us as being the domain experts in many new areas.
