On being a Production Director at Ubisoft Toronto

As a Production Director at UbiTO, youโ€™ll plan and guide the overall development of a game. Youโ€™ll set its production process up for success and then see it through from conception to completion: tracking and fine-tuning along the way.

With a thorough grasp of the experience we intend to deliver, and the effort involved in producing it, you establish the optimal approach to align our ambitions with our abilities.

You will be responsible for moving all of the production team forward from one phase to the next, and for keeping an eye on obstacles that could jeopardize the project as a whole and adapt accordingly.

Plus, you provide the conditions for everyone to contribute together, combine their complementary expertise, and enable their game โ€“ their months of dedication, decision-making, and creation โ€“ to reach an audience.

Type of Position: Permanent, full-time.

The daily life of a Production Director at Ubisoft Toronto

  • Work closely with the Producer and Creative Director to assess the overall game vision & project requirements;

  • Build the project's organizational structure to optimize the team's talents;

  • Develop communication channels to foster collaboration and interaction between colleagues, co-dev studios, and internal and external partners;
  • Monitor progress + sync up with Associate Producers and Production Managers to keep the project on pace;
  • Reflect on whatโ€™s working and whatโ€™s not + look for areas of improvement to evolve our processes, methods, and practices;
  • Create and maintain a supportive work environment + grow the production team..

What it takes to make it

  • Around 8 years of experience in production or project management in the video game industry (or other related experience);
