Your life at Ubi
As a Monetization Specialist, you contribute to the financial success of an online game by setting up and supporting its monetization strategies throughout production and post-launch.
From subscriptions to custom items, you’re responsible for anything with a cost. When it comes to purchasable content and services, you know that value can’t be overlooked. That’s why you take a player-centric approach to monetization design, asking yourself questions like: Is there a balanced range of products? Are their prices reasonable? Are offers displayed at the right place at the right time?
Once live, you stay tuned to how players are responding, and adjust accordingly. You evaluate what’s actually happening in and around gameplay and ensure that cross-functional teams understand the realities of how players are interacting with the game you’re collectively creating. You iterate on what’s not working and improve on what is to consistently deliver a fun and fair experience for the long-term.
Your main mission:
Partner with the monetization director to develop monetization strategies aligned with player expectations and the creative & game directions.
Work closely with game economy designers to come up with justified pricing for items, events, and services.
Plan and oversee the content, promotions, and offers of the primary and secondary stores with the digital sales teams.
Collaborate with interdependent teams (UI, UX, programming, etc.) to implement your monetization systems and features.
Contribute to defining KPIs & work with the user research team to establish tracking and reporting needs.
Monitor performance and revenue + share your findings to identify monetization opportunities and influence decision-making.
Follow up on monetization features and adapt them based on player feedback, reporting results, etc.
Support esports, licensing, and other business teams in negotiating with external partners.

Stay up to date on trends and techniques to develop monetization best practices + promote them across our studios.
