The Challenge Ahead :
Is to build our new cross-game, cross-platform digital economy platform. This large-scale, always-on collection of RESTful services will power the virtual-
economies of EA’s network of games that will be experienced by tens of millions of monthly active users. You'll have the opportunity to build sophisticated platform capabilities handling several hundred-
thousand requests per second, and driving the player engagement of many of the industry’s most popular titles. You'll be able to build server-
side systems that deliver new functionality within the larger Digital Platform, as well as work on regular improvements to the systems to keep them at a top-notch performance.
