Job Description

As a VFX Artist at Ubi Quebec, you will deliver visually impressive moments that positively influence gameplay and enhance the player experience. Be it smoke, fire, an explosion, falling snow, or a waterfall, every one of your effects accents the immersive game world – and often has people wondering, ''How did you do that?''

As a tech-savvy artist, you combine technology and creativity to make the magic happen. You can adapt to a variety of tools while relying on your core talent to create and integrate impactful, high quality, real-time visual effects.

What you'll do
• Collaborate with the core team to understand the overall creative vision and establish visual effect priorities;
• Create environment and cinematic effects using particle systems and textures you produce;
• Partner with programmers to assess needs and develop tools;
• Work within technical constraints to craft attractive and functional effects;
• Integrate your created VFX into the engine;
• Develop effects based on play test results and comments from cross-functional team members (debug and optimize);
• Adapt to feedback received from the community after live launch (in some cases), balancing expectations with limitations.


What you bring
• A diploma in Visual Effects, 3D Animation, or equivalent (undergraduate degree an asset);
• Experience in modelling, texturing, lighting, image processing, or related experience;
• Knowledge of 2D art tools (e.g. Photoshop), compositing software (e.g. After Effects or Nuke), 3D software (e.g. Maya or 3DS Max), and game editors (e.g. Unity or Unreal) *
• An understanding of basic vector math and art fundamentals (lighting, composition, proportion, colour theory, etc.);
• Ability to accept feedback and adapt to it;
• A creative and collaborative spirit;
• Exceptional communication, interpersonal, and presentation skills;
• A keen eye for detail.
*Knowledge of procedural generation software (e.g. Houdini) & shader writing and optimization a huge plus.
