Berlin - Full-time - 743999693870173

JOB DESCRIPTION

As a Realization Director, you will report to the Producer and you will lead a cross discipline team in charge of bringing the extra layer of polish and production value that players expect from Ubisoft games. You will work alongside the Game Director (game design, gameplay, narrative design, UX etc…) and the Content Director (level design, environment art, concept art, technical content etc…) to lead the team and deliver the highest quality.

Your team will be composed of a mix of experts in their domain (VFX Artists, Lighting Artists, Animators, Technical Artists, Audio Designers etc…) and of versatile profiles (“Realization Specialists”) whom will be the glue between the different disciplines. The mandate of this team is to push the production value and polish of the content and features owned by the content and game design teams while fitting into the technical constraints of the project.

Further responsibilities include:

  • Lead the Realization Team: As a Director, you provide the right environment for your team to grow and feel fulfilled by their work. You encourage autonomy, initiative and self-management. You ensure growth of each member of the team in the direction they choose to pursue. You own the vision to grow your team in collaboration with Production and handle the recruitment.
  • Own the vision for the Realization aspect of the game: In accordance to the overall creative direction (game direction, art direction, etc…), you define how the project is going to push the boundaries of production value. You define the intention and the pillars that will help the team to converge and make their own decision. You also demonstrate some strategic skills and aptitudes towards innovation.
  • Handle “project scale” questions: You communicate the long-term goals and the expected standards. You leave the details of implementation to your team. You advise the Producer on Leadership and Strategic topics. You handle communication across studios for strategic topics for the project/brand.

Qualifications

  • You are an expert in one of these disciplines (animation, vfx, lighting, environment art, cinematic, presentation, cinematography, audio) and you are very comfortable with the other ones.
  • You thrive in a fast paced and highly complex environment. You are not easily overwhelmed and you can work on several complex situations at the same time. You are able to make decisions with limited information while also understanding you do not need to make all decisions or even need to agree with all decisions.
  • You strive to build a sustainable environment where continuous improvements and high performances are key. You understand when it is meaningful to prioritize short term over long term but you always build for the decade ahead.
  • You have strong people skills built-in with a servant leadership mindset. You always prioritize others over yourself and you put yourself on the line to protect your team but you also know when authority is required. You know that to make your authority meaningful you have to use it in an extremely sparse manner.
  • You have a track record of released projects with high production value in a creative industry with technical constraints (better if it is in games).

We aim to have a wide and diverse range of profiles within our studio; thus, we are looking forward to being surprised by your application. The most important quality for us is to be a strong team player with a resilient and positive attitude.
