Electronic Arts has appointed former eBay executive Ken Moss as its new chief technology officer.

According to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, Moss will “lead the organization, strategy and vision for EA’s Digital Platform and Information Technology divisions”, at the company.

“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,” Wilson said, in part. “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 was most recently the VP of technology and science for Marketplaces and eBay, but previously spent 20 years at Microsoft where he headed up the search engine project that would eventually become Bing.
