Who we are
Ubisoft Winnipeg is a technology studio with a unique mission: develop new technologies that will change the way we build video game worlds. We are the only Ubisoft studio focused on exploring the unknown to develop technology that empowers game creators—at all Ubisoft Canadian studios—to build even better, more immersive worlds across our major brands such as Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs. Our vanguard studio is on the hunt for passionate and experienced innovators to lead our inspired team in the creation of leading-edge technology in one of Canada’s fastest growing cities for game and tech development. Join the family!
Who you are
The Code Ninja. You are the Swiss Army Knife of your programming team. You were excited to follow Katie Bouman, and you have a sticky note on your monitor that says “If you need it, I can build it” right next to the picture of Geordi La Forge. You follow the latest tech trends, dabbling in everything from Machine Learning to Lambdas to RUST. You love learning the latest technologies. You sponge up programming languages. You can stitch together APIs with such skill that it puts Grandma’s quilt to shame.

Throw yourself into every and any programming challenge with vigor and gusto
Learn new technologies and figure out how to integrate them in our content workflows
Build and enhance systems to support our technology and tools
Propose new technologies to improve video game production pipelines
Reverse engineer anything that isn’t engineered in the right direction
Identify and correct defects, especially your own
Program in a clear and structured way
And, of course, document your work
