Title: Security Operations Specialist
Organization: Worldwide Studios
After I graduated from high school, I wasn’t exactly sure what career path I wanted to choose, but I joined the Finance and Banks University in Bucharest anyway. After the first year, I wanted to do something fun for the summer while also earning pocket money, so I joined EA as a Quality Assurance Tester. Three months later and I already knew that my career path would be in IT, within EA, so, I joined the IT & Cybernetics Security Master.
Getting Your Start with EA
The next year, I returned to EA for another fun summer, and eventually applied for a Security Operations Engineer internship position within the Business Security Operation Center team. More than two years have passed and I am still part of the IT Security team - and proud!
Working at EA
Before joining EA, I worked in three different places and none of them compared to what EA has to offer – a fun and friendly work environment. A few weeks into my internship and I already knew I wanted to work here full-time. Every day I am learning new things as the IT and security industry is constantly changing. EA gave me the opportunity to meet, work and hang out with some amazing people!
EA has given me a great platform for professional growth and offered me an amazing career path. I am really grateful for the opportunity that I have to work with such amazing people in a fun environment! Being in the security field, I am constantly interacting with various EA employees from all around the world to work together on anything from adjusting the security level of an endpoint protection agent, to verifying a website or checking the legitimacy of a suspicious email.
