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 hard work. That’s why we employ the most creative, passionate people in the industry.

The Full Stack 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 enable EA to ship great games.

The Frostbite engine powers EA’s leading games and the Development & Release Engineering team is responsible for ensuring automated tests on the Frostbite codebase return quick and reliable results. We also create tools to help the global Frostbite development team to find and fix those code issues quickly.

You will report to the Engineering Manager based in Stockholm.
