With every new iteration, you commit yourself to answering the most fundamental questions: Will it be easy for the player to flow through menus? Does the HUD feel right? Is it AAA quality? You’re an avid gamer who cares about the player experience.
As a dependable member of a cohesive presentation team composed of UI designers and artists, you will bring to life the vision of the UI designers, who will take your point of view and expertise into consideration when making their decisions.
The daily life of a UI Programmer at Ubi Montreal:
- Code new and existing UI systems to meet the intent of the game’s design and flow;
- Keep them coherent with existing code;
- Understand existing functions, and suggest and develop improvements;
- Collaborate with designers and artists on layouts;
- Resolve UI bugs;
- Document your work.
What it takes to make it:
- Around 5 years of experience in C++ and optimizing code
- Experience in gameplay, UI, and design (menus, HUD)
- Experience as part of a team that has shipped a video game
- Experience developing on video game consoles (Playstation, Xbox)
- A degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering (or related training)
- Proficiency to communicate with all disciplines and to support and elevate the team in terms of quality and vision of the game
