Do you have an interest in how cloud tech is shaping the games of tomorrow? Would like to work alongside likeminded programming experts on transforming traditional game engines to the cloud?

As a C++ Programmer, you’ll work on Ubisoft Scalar - a new foundational technology leveraging the possibilities of cloud computing to enable unprecedented freedom and scale for the games of tomorrow. Ubisoft Scalar take the components and systems of traditional game engines and transforms them into microservices in the cloud – moving from the closed, single-processor systems of today to a distributed model across a potentially unlimited number of machines.


You’ll be part of a team building and deploying core services on a cloud platform for our games. Following a microservice architecture pattern, you will create independent systems that increase scale and depth for simulations of our game worlds. Working in parallel with game teams who make use of this new technology, you will also be working closely with people from other disciplines and follow agile methodologies to drive your work forward.


You’ll get to work with tech like:

  • C++: libcurl, openssl, asio, lz4, rapidjson, spdlog, fmt, lz4, gtest, entt, lyra, imgui
  • Python: numpy, numba, flask, jinja, sphinx, lz4, opentelemetry, google-cloud-sdk
  • Other: docker, clang, visual studio, conan, cmake, gitlab, linux (Debian) and access to Ubisoft’s global innersource community



You’re eager to learn new technologies and love the creative challenge of problem solving in code. You can work independently, but never hesitate to share ideas and collaborate with your colleagues around the world. You’re receptive to feedback and work with your partner studios to deliver the best experience possible. Besides the above, we are looking for someone aligned with our studio’s core values and the following skills and experience:

  • Know when to use unit tests and are familiar with test driven development
  • Are experienced with debugging on multiple operating systems, including console and/or linux
  • Have been working with C++ 20 or newer and have an interest in Python
  • Have some experience with cloud platforms and microservices


The following would be a bonus:

  • Have professional experience working in/on a modern game engine
