  • Foster collaborative innovation in the Stockholm Studio and in Ubisoft as a whole.
  • Inspire the team to navigate through ambitious and disruptive innovation.

We would love if you...

  • Have experience developing, debugging and optimizing tools and technology for AAA games on PC or console.
  • Have development experience in multiple game domains (for example Animation, Gameplay, Rendering, Tools, etc).
  • Have extensive professional hands-on experience in several programming languages, with C++ being the most prominent one. Other relevant languages are Go, Rust, Python and PowerShell among more.
  • Have a master’s degree in computer science, or equivalent training and professional experience.
  • Want to find the best fit solution to complex problems, finding compromises for stakeholders with differing needs.
