Full-time - REF21442P
Production Director, Ubisoft Montréal As a Production Director at Ubi MTL, you’ll plan and guide the overall development of a game. You’ll set its production process up for success and then see it through from conception to completion: tracking and fine-tuning along the way.
With a thorough grasp of the experience we intend to deliver, and the effort involved in producing it, you establish the optimal approach to align our ambitions with our abilities.
Responsible for moving all of the production team forward from one phase to the next, you keep an eye on obstacles that could jeopardize the project as a whole, and adapt accordingly.
Plus, you provide the conditions for everyone to contribute together, combine their complementary expertise, and enable their game – their months of dedication, decision-making, and creation – to reach an audience.
What you’ll do
- Work closely with the producer and creative director to assess the overall game vision & project requirements.
- Define the scope of the entire project: create its high-level roadmap and timeline, establish its main deliverables and key milestones, and set its development strategies and budgets.
- Build the project's organizational structure to optimize the team's talents.
- Anticipate and identify risks and setbacks + put plans in place to overcome them.
- Develop communication channels to foster collaboration and interaction between colleagues, co-dev studios, and internal and external partners.
- Monitor progress + sync up with associate producers and production managers to keep the project on pace.
- Reflect on what’s working and what’s not + look for areas of improvement to evolve our processes, methods, and practices.
- Create and maintain a supportive work environment + grow the production team.
What you bring
- Around 5 years of experience in production or project management in the video game industry (or other related experience)
- In-depth knowledge of development pipelines and interdependencies + familiarity with a variety of project management methodologies
- A degree in Project Management or Business Administration (or relevant training)
- An innovative spirit that drives you to explore and bring about new ways of doing things
- The ability to influence change + anticipate blockers and find creative solutions to remove them
- A collaborative mindset
- Excellent communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills
- Consideration of the impact your choices have on creators
- Plenty of flexibility to adapt to whatever production (inevitably) throws your way: you can modify any part of your plans based on the situation
