Ha! No, it sounds like me!
But I bet it's nowhere near the southwest of England, and I'm not moving for anything, ever.

Appears to be in California, but it is a nice turn up for the books that EA are looking at Java seriously.

Shame its not in the UK or I'd be forced to apply,

I used to have all new EA positions emailed to me when they appear, but Java never appeared, so I think I unsubscribed.

EA's jobs page appears to be dead.  Anyone got a better link?

Our jobs site is not very well organized, but the job is there. Best way to find it is to go to jobs.ea.com - search for Java, then click on "Redwood Shores" (where the job is, BTW). It should show up as SW Engineer III.

Wow, now I'll have to think twice before posting a crappy code fragement if the mighty EA is going to be creeping around these forums. :p

Is there supposed to be a way to contact pogo games for something other than technical support (like the page got swallowed by the jobs page)?
