Electronic Arts has hired tech industry executive Ken Moss to serve as its new Chief Technology Officer, according to a company blog post
attributed to EA CEO Andrew Wilson.
Moss is stepping into a role that has remained vacant for months, as inaugural EA CTO Rajat Taneka left the company late last year to take an executive position with Visa. EA first established the position when it hired Taneka
away from Microsoft back in 2011 to oversee its technology investments and decisions from a global perspective.
Moss will perform similar duties and will be responsible for overseeing EA's Information Technology and Digital Platform divisions, which seem to be heavily involved in the support of EA's mobile games and its Origin digital distribution platform.
He previously worked at eBay in an executive role, and prior to that spent two decades at Microsoft working on technology services and the search engine that became Bing.
