Job Description

La Forge: facilitating technical prototyping based on the latest academic progress

La Forge is a bridge between academia and video game production, between scholars and industry experts. Dedicated to innovation, we aim to accelerate research and development. Through prototyping, we help content creators build increasingly believable worlds and better understand our players. Academics and professionals, together, we explore subjects such as rendering, animation, AI, audio, and physics. Our mission: to tackle some of the biggest challenges in art and tech in gaming.

As a Technical Lead at La Forge, you’ll guide a small yet mighty team of R&D developers in transforming prototypes into minimum viable products for video game productions.

With the support of the department’s development director and production manager, you’ll provide invaluable technical oversight and direction – from design to delivery.

With a responsibility to help your team of developers refine their skills, you’ll coach and mentor them, empowering them to innovate and perform at their best in a collaborative R&D space.

Thanks to your know-how, credibility, and reliability, not only can your colleagues at La Forge turn to you for information and direction, but so can others. You’re a go-to person for guidance and a trusted advisor for Ubisoft employees worldwide.
