Job Description
Game Designer (3C)

As a Game Designer at Ubi MTL, you will be the creative energy behind a specific set of game systems and mechanics. You provide players with tools to build unique gameplay experiences and opportunities to make meaningful choices.

You go through an iterative, hands-on process of adjusting and balancing your design as you bring it from concept to playability. Throughout production, you shift your focus from the big picture to the micro details; tackling hurdles in development and stepping back to asses how all the pieces connect and affect each other. You tweak and tune until it finally happens: a smooth and engaging player experience emerges.

What you'll do
• Drive and own the design of AAA quality 3C (character, controls and camera) gameplay features from conception through final product.
• Create new systems and features while balancing and tweaking existing ones.
• Collaborate with cross-functional teams to integrate your assigned features.
• Develop in-engine prototypes.
• Adapt to technical and production constraints, reworking your design when and as often as needed.
• Create and maintain design documentation that will guide interdependent teams.


What you bring
• Experience in video game production. It would be ideal if you had experience with single-player 3rd person action adventure games.
• An ability to recognize great game feel and how to manifest player fantasy into gameplay mechanics.
• Experience with game engines (e.g. Unity or Unreal) and productivity software (word processors, spreadsheets, etc.)
• An innovative, empathetic, and collaborative spirit
• Exceptional communication, interpersonal, and presentation skills (you're able to clearly explain your thought process on paper and in person)
• Critical thinking, curiosity, resourcefulness, and plenty of flexibility
• A solid understanding of the market and a passion for video games – you play enough to know what makes quality gameplay!

What to send our way
• Your CV highlighting your education, experience, and skills
• Samples of your work (attach files or send us a link to your demo reel or online portfolio)

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.
