Global games giant, Electronic Arts, today announced the creation of 300 new jobs for EA's European Customer Experience Centre of Excellence in Galway.
Building on the foundation of its existing facility, EA will now provide multilingual international customer support and services for its major game titles.
This investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD said: "It is less than a year since I attended the opening of the EA facility in Galway, and I am delighted to announce today that EA has made the decision to invest further in Ireland by locating their strategically important Customer Experience Centre here. This decision is a real endorsement of Ireland's ability to meet the needs of leading multinational companies in the digital media space. I wish EA every success with this new Centre and offer the continued support of the Irish Government as the company continues to develop here."
Peter Moore, EA COO, said, "The EA European Customer Experience Centre is the focal point of our strategy to serve gamers on a global basis. In today's fast-moving digital environment, we need to engage with our worldwide customer base on a 24/7 basis, across all of EA's games and services and in multiple languages. Galway's mix of technology infrastructure and talent availability, combined with a pro-business environment, will help us expand on our existing foundation here. We're proud to be part of Ireland's growth into cutting edge digital industries."
