We are EA
We entertain millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. That’s why we employ the most creative, passionate people in the industry.
The Challenge Ahead:
EA’s UK game studio Criterion is opening up several yearlong internships, spanning all game development crafts.
We are growing our team with talented people who will help us take a huge leap forwards, and you, the next generation of game makers, are central to this ambition. As we explore new possibilities within gaming, challenge our own beliefs and step outside of our comfort zone, we need fresh perspective that challenges convention and inspires us to grow.
To that end, we’re looking for a talented and motivated Intern Software Engineer who will help us on this journey, while learning about the field of games art hands-on.
What an Intern Software Engineer does:
Our software engineers work with other disciplines such as all manner of designers, artists and producers. Unlike many other games studios, our office is not separated by craft. We believe that we work best when we arrange our desks into our feature teams. Therefore, we are looking for an intern who would revel in working in this way.
Creating a game requires many areas of engineering all coming together harmoniously. This means that as a software engineer there is a lot to choose from: Physics, Gameplay, Engine, AI, UI, Core, Build, QE, Web Technology, Tools and many more. Currently, we are looking for an intern in any one of these areas depending on what’s best for you.
What we are looking for:
- Have some experience in programming – any language and any technology
- An intense passion to make incredible games with fresh player experiences
- You value working in a team and aren’t afraid to ask questions
- You know that we will never stop learning and so have a hunger to learn as much as possible
- You play games and often try to understand how they are made or have ideas on how to improve them
- When something isn’t right you have an “I can fix that” attitude
- While not essential if you have created a game, a website, an app or tool? Show us, we would love to hear about it
Please note: If you have a passion to work here, please apply, even if this specification does not describe you. Unfortunately, job specifications are a little more box like than we would like. We don’t like putting people into boxes. We would love to hear about who you are because, even if it isn’t engineering, we may be able to find something here that is right for you and therefore right for us too.
We appreciate the work our Interns provide, so here at EA we like to offer you great facilities while you are working onsite including:
- Free onsite gym
- Two annual parties (Summer and Christmas)
- Onsite cafe
- Games Area
More importantly, because we love working with world-class creators, we maintain a culture that thrives on creative freedom and autonomy.

We are based in the lovely town of Guildford – 35 minutes from central London.
Our office is a short walk from the train station and town centre.
