Technical Lead (Architect) – InnerSource

Full-time - REF17874H

Job description

As a Technical Lead (Architect), you’ll guide DTest, a primary distributed test framework and InnerSource project for automated testing, into the future: steering it – and its many contributors throughout Ubi – in a unified direction.  

Used by several game teams, like Rainbow 6, Assassin’s Creed, and Far Cry, DTest is a suite of tools that encapsulate automated test creation, distributed execution, and results collection across our titles.

You’ll evolve and improve DTest: ensuring the scalability, stability, and continuous performance of all aspects of this framework while supporting a group of programmers in creating high-quality and feature-rich components.

A seasoned developer, you’ll be the technical reference for not only the team dedicated to maintaining the project but also the community contributing to it.


What you’ll do 

  • Play a key role in setting DTest’s technical direction and priorities. 
  • Build infrastructure as code + design custom tools and scripts as necessary.
  • Define and promote storage, cloud, and build pipeline standards and requirements.
  • Foster communication with game teams to understand their needs & offer technical advice and guidance.
  • Mentor and motivate your team of programmers, empowering them to innovate, perform at their best, and develop their technical skills.
  • Provide technical oversight by reviewing code & ensuring that contributions from the community are integrated safely and efficiently. 
  • Create and maintain accessible technical documentation that will serve as a company-wide reference.
  • Anticipate, assess, and troubleshoot complex, escalated issues (related to storage, cloud services, etc.).


What you bring

  • Experience in DevOps tooling
  • A deep understanding of build pipelines, build automation, and continuous delivery
  • Proficiency in C++ and C#
  • Experience managing reproducible infrastructure & creating and maintaining a microservice architecture
  • Solid communication skills that allow you to enhance collaboration in distributed teams
  • A desire to share your knowledge to push the boundaries of technology & help others learn and grow

Nice to have, but not essential:

  • Experience managing or contributing to open source projects
  • Experience with Elasticsearch, Mongo DB, MySQL, Docker, and Kubernetes


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.
