On being a Team Lead Programmer (3D) at Ubisoft Montreal:

As a Team Lead Programmer for the 3D team, you guide a group of talented and inspired  programmers who develop technology critical to creating games Ubisoft fans can't wait to play. Your team achieves its ambitions thanks to your technical know-how, leadership and ability to make informed decisions. You take pride and share a passion for the systems your team develops together.

Your vision and your deep comprehension of what everyone does on your team allow you to harmonize and multiply the results of everyone's contribution. When quality systems are delivered, and when they work together cohesively, you know you have contributed to offering a rich experience to our players, and that's what truly motivates you.

The daily life of a Team Lead Programmer (3D):

On a typical day, you gather your team to discuss progress with assigned tasks. You note issues and brainstorm ways to address them. You review outstanding bugs and how best to approach them. You communicate regularly with leads from other disciplines to plan, identify risks and deliver on time.

You code alongside your team daily. You regularly update your Project Lead on your team's assignments and meet with other leads both within and outside your project to discuss improving workflows and sharing technology.

Essentially, you and your team care about image quality. You have a good understanding of the physics of lighting and a working knowledge of physically based shading. You use these passions, skills, and ability to create exceptional work and are eager for your colleagues' feedback.

What you bring:

  • An undergraduate degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, or equivalent training or relevant experience;
  • A minimum of 5 years experience in game programming;
  • Proficient in C++ and other programming languages commonly used in-game production;
  • Significant knowledge and experience with a modern GPU rendering pipeline and how to utilize it efficiently;
  • Considerable knowledge and experience with real-time Physically Based Rendering (lighting, BRDF's, camera model, etc.);
  • Participation in at least one complete game production or equivalent in a programming role or technical management;
  • Impeccable strategic leadership and communication skills;
  • Act as a role model. You demonstrate care for people, express inclusive behaviours and foster a safe and respectful work environment;
  • Remain calm when facing challenging situations (you know a solution is always at hand);
