Ubisoft Halifax began its journey with Ubisoft in 2015 and has since grown to over 70 employees with a focus on diversity and expertise, and a taste for experimentation. The studio is Ubisoft’s first Canadian studio to specialize in mobile free-to-play games, mixing Ubisoft’s expertise on major franchises with an approach to wider casual audiences. Ubisoft Halifax is also a solid co-dev studio inside of the Ubisoft ecosystem, participating in many of the most exciting future mobile projects in the company; as well as working on exciting unannounced projects of its own. The studio takes part in many local initiatives to grow the community of game developers in Atlantic Canada, and make the industry more inclusive and diverse.
Halifax is the largest city on Canada’s beautiful eastern coast and is a hub for the Atlantic tech industry. The city is home to history and culture, with a scenic waterfront, world class restaurants and a multitude of festivals and events. Yet denizens can access a taste of nature in the surrounding hiking trails, beaches and provincial parks that are an easy drive away from the city centre.
The studio is located in the heart of the city in the historic and iconic Keith’s Brewery Market. The harbour is in view from our window and lunch breaks can be spent on the boardwalk or at one of the many restaurants and cafes that popular the downtown core. The studio culture is dynamic and cooperative, with communication between teams and an emphasis on team building. Studio members are encouraged to maintain a work-life balance by offering days to focus on volunteering, self care and professional development.
