On being a Technical Artist at Ubisoft Toronto


As a Technical Artist at UbiTO, you and your team strive towards creating game features that are visually stunning while maintaining their performance, exceeding the expectations of players.


To achieve this, you bring together the worlds of the artist and the programmer, acting as an interpreter and problem-solver. With your help, the two collaborate cohesively and efficiently, while staying on time and sticking to budget, using the most appropriate tools and pipelines. You ensure assets can be rendered without compromising the artistic vision, on the one hand, or busting your memory budget on the other, setting benchmarks for your feature as you go along. You are the team’s hybrid specialist, speaking both from the heart and the mind, while keeping an eye on quality.


Your curious and passionate nature sees you considering, creating and implementing new techniques that will see your team’s feature set new standards in the videogame industry.


Type of Position: Permanent, full-time.
