  • Identify and define technical solutions for bleeding edge online features
  • Write clean, maintainable, portable code with the goal of bringing the best online experience to our players
  • Ensure that new features and systems meet high performance requirements and match the project’s C++ code style
  • Contribute to planning sessions and code reviews with your peers
  • Work together with other international Ubisoft studios
