Most companies call it HR. At Electronic Arts, we are People Experience (PE). PE is a team of cultural stewards who carefully create talent strategies and offerings that directly affect our teams' experience and help our people achieve the most meaningful work of their careers.

The Global Talent team's mission is to accelerate people and organizational capability so EA can inspire the world to play. We focus on people development, organization effectiveness and an engaging employee experience. We are an interdisciplinary team helping EA not only be the industry leader but also a pioneer in new forms of digital entertainment. We are uniquely positioned to make lasting change in a creative environment. While we move fast, we also believe in having fun - we love games!

As a Senior Manager in Talent Development, you’ll focus on developing world-class, full spectrum people leaders by developing and delivering immersive, interactive experiences that develop the capabilities of our people leaders.
