As a Programming Team Lead within Ubisoft Connect you oversee a group of frontend programmers in developing the web-driven user experience that power Ubisoft Connect. You work within a modern web stack based on React, GraphQL and TypeScript to name a few.

You guide the developers, that report directly to you, in defining, building, and evolving the features and tools that compose Ubisoft Connect today and tomorrow. That includes features like friend invites, the games library, a list of achievements and more. You keep a balance between new features, keeping tech-debt in check and evolving our technical foundations.

You are a direct manager for your team members and as such acknowledge and take care of their individual needs, concerns, and aspirations. You assist in their career development through personal and project-specific goals, timely and effective feedback, trainings, team activities and guidance on a path toward continuous improvement.

Your team achieves its goals thanks to your technical know-how, leadership, and ability to make informed choices. You work within a multi-disciplined live production team, where you build along creative, technical, qc and management peers. Finally, when Ubisoft Connect features land in the hands of our players, while all works well and smoothly, you know you have contributed to delivering a reliable, consistent, and enriching experience, which in the end is our source of motivation.
