EA is looking for a Senior Technical Program Manager with a strong skill set in cross-platform SDKs, online services and documentation to help craft amazing developer experiences. Our team of tight-knit program managers collaborates with game teams, industry experts, and world-class technologists, to reimagine how people develop and manage technology services in games. This is an incredible opportunity to enrich the lives of EA's developers, producers, and quality engineers in meaningful ways.

As a Senior Technical Program Manager, you would be working closely with other program managers, product managers, engineers, scientists, researchers, and business stakeholders to deliver a rich SDK product experience that makes our partners smile. You will be expected to deliver cross-platform, highly functional, stable product releases to schedule and to world-class quality.


As EA moves towards a player network strategy to make gameplay smarter, better, and more personalized, the infrastructure to support this transformation is increasingly challenging due to complexity and scale. The focus of this role is to deliver products for game teams that help enable frictionless game development through central platform technology. It will require both the ability to understand and address current customer pain points. We also expect this role to come up with novel solutions to solve problems that will arise in the future. The EADP Developer Experience team makes it easy to create, manage, and monitor the entire suite of EADP services and infrastructure and to easily integrate these solutions within all EA games. If you’re passionate about working as a program manager to deliver developer experiences that are engaging, delightful, and easy to use to aid building amazing games whilst keeping developers smiling then this is the team for you!

In this role, you will provide program/project leadership, anticipate bottlenecks, mitigate project risks, make tradeoffs, and balance the business needs versus technical constraints as well as communicate broadly across EA. You will provide program leadership pertaining to how SDKs will be built and delivered within EADP and ultimately, by Game Studios. You will translate requirements across feature sets, security, performance, and costs – as well as process requirements to optimize the dev to production experience into deliverables and influence design and architectural decisions whilst resolving incidents, supporting developers and streamlining communications.

You will work with various teams across EA Digital Platform & Game Studios to identify and drive innovative solutions that enable teams to achieve business goals and product deliverables in an easy, efficient and reliable manner. A successful candidate will have a strong software development background, excellent problem solving, project management and communication skills.
