Ubisoft IT is looking for a Linux System Administrator to join the IT Games Services team. This team’s main function is to work closely with the Productions' Online Programmers and Live Operations Managers to ensure ease of operability and long-term stability of our games. They build tools and products that automate and work with infrastructure so that developers can focus on their areas of expertise rather than needing to learn the nuances of infrastructure development. Finally, they also focus on efficient pipelines from code to production including automation.

As a Linux System Administrator joining this team, you will be responsible for supporting one or multiple Game Production teams to ensure the best player experience possible. You will also create solutions to overcome obstacles and ensure that the tools and infrastructures used for the studio’s various activities are working properly.


  • Support game production environments leveraging Cloud solutions as well as develop tools and services for those solutions;
  • Work with DevOps best practices and implement CI/CD pipelines;
  • Implement automation of recurrent tasks through scripting; 
  • Monitor system events to ensure health, maximum system availability, and service quality;
  • Troubleshoot emergencies;
  • Maintain documentation regarding configurations, operations, and troubleshooting procedures;
  • Participate in post-mortem and root cause analysis;
  • Participate in the evaluation of new requirements such as technical designs, the definition of standards, guidelines, best practices, and metrics as directed;
  • Collaborate closely with Online Developers and Live Operations to deploy new features and updates;
  • Answer user’s queries and service requests.

*Must be available for on-call rotation*

  • Excellent knowledge of DevOps, automation, and orchestration tools such as Terraform, Chef, Kubernetes, Helm, Docker, ArgoCD, and GitLab;
  • Proficient knowledge of Cloud technologies such as AWS and/or Azure;
  • Good knowledge of Linux operating systems;
  • Good knowledge of Golang;
  • Good knowledge of monitoring tools such as ELK, Prometheus, Kibana, and Grafana;
  • Experience with SQL and NoSQL databases: MongoDB, MySQL, and Postgres.

Just a heads up: If you require a work permit, your eligibility may depend on your education and years of relevant work experience, as required by the government.
