You will be a key stakeholder of all Design related technical decisions. You will play a role in listing and tracking Design project needs, creating efficient methods and tools and will be the main point of contact of game and level designers on design matters.

Your main tasks are as follow:

  • Work with the technical designers and our programming team to make sure our production team uses the best tools, both internal and external, in order to simplify the work of other production teams. This can be achieved by prototyping new tech elements, asking for improvements to existing tools, requesting new tools be made or by validating our tools before their deployment on our project.
  • Create and maintain the documentation of our technical process. This helps us establish the best practices for our work and data structuring to improve teamwork and reduce bugs.
  • Share your knowledge with the team so that the entire team improves on their own skillset. You will also drive your 3-people team towards its success. 
  • Keep track of new technical and technological developments at Ubisoft and in the industry in order to share these new learnings with our project. We expect you to become an advisor to the project and to discuss with your technical director peers on other projects, or other job families. 
  • Ensure your team participates in our optimization and debug efforts.
