On being a 3D Programmer at Ubisoft Toronto:

When you’re a 3D Programmer at Ubisoft Toronto, you connect with our players on two of the most basic aspects of a AAA game: its visuals and its performance. Your exceptional maths skills, your sharp eye for visual detail, and your knowledge of GPUs allow you to write a game’s most fundamental code and deliver a stunning visual experience.

As a dependable member of a larger production team, you collaborate with colleagues from a range of disciplines who depend on you for quickly getting something that is clear and good-looking up on screen. You work well with technical artists, transforming their requirements into efficient, working code.

Essentially, what you care about is image quality. You have a good understanding of the physics of lighting and a working knowledge of physically based shading. You use these passions, skills, and knowledge to create striking work, and are eager for your colleagues’ feedback.
