Senior 3D Programmer
Full-time - REF13128T
As a Senior 3D Programmer at Ubi MTL, you provide insight and guidance across the 3D spectrum to connect with our players on two of the most critical aspects of a AAA game: its visuals and its performance.
Whether your expertise lies with visuals or low-level systems, you’re a go-to person for information and a reference throughout our studios. Both a hands-on programmer and a direction-providing mentor, you’re responsible for seeing your area of ownership through to completion and making sure that all other areas of the game ship.
What you’ll do
- Write and review code customized to the hardware you’re working with.
- Coach and mentor other members of the graphics team, empowering them to innovate.
- Provide support to content creators, meeting often to assess their needs and vision + discuss limitations.
- Improve existing graphical features and inspire the development of new ones.
- Anticipate complex problems + propose adapted solutions, considering the entire production pipeline.
- Explore new hardware and deal with the interesting challenges and opportunities it poses.
- Stay up to date on the latest tech trends and techniques + recommend our best practices.
- Foster relationships with first-party partners.
- Encourage knowledge sharing and facilitate information flow (e.g. produce modular code for colleagues from other projects and studios, host and attend 3D tech talks and other presentations, write about your work, etc.).
What you bring
- Graphics programming experience (for video-game consoles a huge plus) or related experience
- Proficiency in C++
- Knowledge of GPUs, HLSL, and graphics APIs (e.g. DirectX and Vulkan) + understanding of game engines and their limitations
- A thorough grasp of memory management & multithreaded programming techniques
- Solid interpersonal and presentation skills & the ability to clearly communicate cross-departmentally
- A long-term approach to problem-solving (if the solution isn’t sustainable, it simply won’t do)
- A collaborative and innovative spirit
- Willingness to continue learning – new technologies, engines, rendering techniques, programming languages, you name it
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.
What to send our way
- Your CV, highlighting your experience, education, skills, and any games shipped
- Samples of your best work (e.g. video demos, personal projects, published articles, etc.)
