“Who is EA Capital Games?”

We’re a mobile game studio located in Midtown Sacramento, home to the highly successful title Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, the most successful Star Wars mobile game ever released, charting as the #1 grossing game in over 35 countries, and one of the Top 40 grossing games in the entire world across Apple and Google.

Collectively, we are a close-knit group of passionate gamers, passionate about the creation of genre-defining mobile RPGs, and the vibrant live services necessary to support them. Our team culture is friendly, fast-paced, results-focused, and collaborative. We take our work – but not ourselves – very seriously.

While walking the halls of our brand-new 31,000 sqft studio, you’ll hear the cacophony of epic console competitions, lively debates, and the rattle of dice thrown across a game board. Game nights, happy hours, weekend adventures, and a dog friendly atmosphere are all elements of who we are.

We are looking for a Technical Director who is passionate about building great games with a collaborative team of accomplished developers. You will lead the engineering component of the team and provide technical direction to senior technical leads. As a Technical Director, you will work with other product leaders and technical partners as the technical expert for the team.

The ideal candidate will have experience creating and running live mobile games. You value turning the complex into the simple to understand, knowledge of software engineering practices and technical aptitude. You can balance strategy and tactical direction to achieve and maintain stable, scalable, cost-effective games with focused innovations.
