Project Lead Programmer
- Montreal, Canada
As a Project Lead Programmer (CPI), you lead the game’s technological vision that brings to life the creative ambitions of the project. To achieve those ambitions, you build teams composed of talented and inspired programmers, overseen by just-as-passionate programming team leads.

Thanks to your leadership and your ability to make the best decisions when faced with challenges in production, your programming teams can achieve their ambitions.
Sometimes, you roll up your sleeves and get deep into coding, because, after all, it’s still your first love. Your global vision and your deep comprehension of what everyone does on your team allow you to harmonize and to multiply the results of everyone’s hard work. When quality systems are delivered and when they work together cohesively, you know you contribute in offering a rich experience to our players. And that’s what truly motivates you.

- Voice the challenges, the observations, and make recommendations on behalf of the project’s programming teams at the core team level
- Monitor the game architecture’s evolution
