Job description

Ubisoft International Production, the link to our network of production studios, plays an essential role in the conception of our games.

Working closely with upper management and studios worldwide, we support an array of project teams on a wide range of topics (like production processes, design, content, game direction, financial planning, and human resources) to enable them to develop high-quality games, all while maintaining editorial and strategic coherence.

This big picture perspective allows our team members to benefit from a global overview of all current projects in development.
 

As a transformation project manager within the International Production team, you’ll coordinate and drive meaningful transformation projects and initiatives – ranging from talent management to operational excellence, production governance, technological convergence, and beyond.  

Reporting to our Transformation Project Director, you’ll support video game production teams worldwide in introducing any changes to the production organization as efficiently as can be.  
 
 


Location: This position is based out of Montreal, Toronto, or Québec City.

 

What you’ll do

In a multi-cultural, distributed environment, you’ll:

  • Contribute to designing, developing, and implementing production “to-be” models aligned with our strategic orientations.
     
  • Follow the transformation framework and provide feedback to improve it + guide and support project leaders across the organization.
     
  • Coordinate program projects with sponsors.
     
  • Oversee, support, and monitor multiple projects in parallel to ensure they’re progressing.
     
  • Engage people around transformation projects through effective communication, trusting relationships, and a positive mindset.
     
  • Carry out change impact analyses + propose actions that fit the Ubisoft culture and context.
     
  • Proactively raise issues to stakeholders (like project leaders, sponsors, and the transformation leadership team) + guide them in implementing methods to prevent issues from becoming blockers.
     
  • Support general management information needs: preparing presentations and developing agendas, inputs, outputs, and reports for transformation meetings, etc.
     
  • Occasionally travel to visit other Ubisoft studios when need be.

Qualifications

What you bring

  • Significant experience in project management, consulting, or change management (Project Management accreditations like PMP, Lean Six Sigma, or SAFe, a plus)
  • The capacity to work with diverse teams in multiple locations, engaging their input and commitment, and inspiring trust through your words and actions
  • A deep understanding of the obstacles that come with driving change in distributed environments
  • The ability to gather, assess, and prioritize requests from multiple sources + carry out adapted solutions
  • An inclusive and influential leadership style that allows you to rally people together
  • Familiarity with transformation management programs
  • French and English communication skills
  • Experience working with Microsoft Teams and in an Agile environment
