EA hires former eBay exec Ken Moss

Publisher appoints new chief technology officer

EA has announced the appointment of Ken Moss as the firm's new chief technology officer.


Moss, who was most recently the VP of technology and science for Marketplaces at eBay, had previously worked for 20 years at Microsoft, heading up the search engine development project that would later become Bing.

At EA Moss will "lead the organization, strategy and vision for EA's Digital Platform and Information Technology divisions", confirmed EA CEO Andrew Wilson in an official statement.

"Ken joins us at an important time in EA's journey, as technology continues to transform the experiences we deliver to our players. We're designing games as live services, with gamers playing more and for longer than ever before," said Wilson.

"Our digital platform provides the underlying infrastructure to deliver fun, seamless and curated journeys for our players. And we're moving faster as a company, with technology tools and solutions at the core. I'm thrilled to have Ken's technical leadership on board as we navigate such a dynamic period for EA and the interactive entertainment industry."

Moss replaces EA's former CTO Rajat Taneka, who departed from the firm last year.
