Working within Ubi MTL's Harbour team, the candidate would be responsible for design, implementation, and maintenance of tools and web applications.

These tools and applications allow automation and simplification of key operations like deployments of builds and versions, or the capacity to quickly develop operational apps designed specifically for "Games as a Service" projects.  In addition to offering a platform where our partners can be autonomous in their development efforts, we also act as co-developers using our expertise to produce applications.

  • Docker and Gitlab CI for the testing and integration pipeline.

Our tools must also integrate several internal APIs.

There is a specific focus on the implementation of best development practices (continuous integration/deployment), code review, pair programming and microservice architecture.

What you'll  do

  • Develop and maintain frontend web applications based on internal client needs.
  • Compile, understand, and analyze the operational needs of the production and service teams to best serve their interests. 
  • Suggest improvements by designing and implementing new systems and functions.

  • Support the functions and systems designed for production.
