We are Uprise

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

 

The Challenge Ahead

Our journey started with companion experiences and is now taking us to brand new places. We wish we could tell you more, but on our continued journey, we need a highly motivated back-end engineer to join our teams. Creating experiences for players of Battlefield, Star Wars™ Battlefront and other EA titles, our projects have grown both in number of users and developers over the last couple of years. We think we need not only cater for scaling and performance demand our users create, but also making sure we as developers stay productive. Therefore we want more talented engineers to join us in creating world-class game services supporting AAA games created at DICE and EA.
