SEED is a pioneering group within Electronic Arts, combining creativity with applied research. We explore, build and help define the future of interactive entertainment.

We exist at EA to deliver and foster inspiring innovation for our games and our players. We do this through exploration, research, prototypes, and never-ending curiosity. We collaborate with game teams and industry partners and also publish our research within our industry and to the public. We pursue long-term applied research yet stay relevant to the present by delivering artifacts along the way to game teams and technology groups inside EA. Some of our research includes bringing digital characters to life, using machine learning for game AI and content creation, and developing novel real-time graphics & physics techniques.

We are looking for a Senior Physics Engineer - a physics programmer with a wide gamut of applied research experience with simulation techniques and technologies - to work on the future of real-time simulation to deliver world-class experiences for our players.

You excel at implementing novel solutions to complex real-time physics challenges and know how to strike a balance between quality and performance. You have mastered real-time rigid body simulation but understand its limitations, and you have ideas about how to improve upon it. You are excited to explore new simulation techniques for highly dynamic and malleable worlds. Perhaps we've already seen you speak at GDC or SIGGRAPH, read the papers or articles you've published, or even played some of the games you have worked on.

This role is a flexible hybrid onsite role from one of our EA offices in Canada, and it offers an opportunity for remote work. You will report to our rendering research vector leader.

As a Senior Physics Engineer at SEED, you will:

As a diverse team with solid goals, we provide autonomy and true influence to each member of SEED. We are looking for an open and curious person; someone who gets a kick out of taking new ideas, investigating them, and adapting their application to games. You have a desire to explore new areas of game development - someone who is passionate, creative, communicative, and invested.


If you want to be part of—and work with—some of the most incredible people in the field, then SEED is your team!
