Software Development Manager (Rainbow Six Siege)
As a Software Development Manager, you’ll shape the technological vision of Rainbow Six Siege.
Siege is a constantly evolving game as a service. Over the last 6 years, we have continuously added new content while simultaneously enhancing its tech.
As a team, we firmly believe:
- In a sustainable work rhythm and a healthy and inclusive environment.
- In iterative development and delivering value to players rapidly (we ship live every 2 weeks 😊).
- That nothing is off-limits, and it’s possible to deliver major technical improvements in small increments.
- That this philosophy enables us to deliver a better quality game for our players.
Collaborating closely with team leads, you’ll contribute to defining Siege’s long-term direction on the human and technical management fronts.
In this strategic role, you’ll oversee core tech teams, like engine, graphics, audio, and network. Proactive and results-oriented, you’ll foster a supportive and sustainable work environment, always putting the well-being of your teams first.
Plus, you’ll contribute to laying a firm foundation for R6’s tech to ensure the game's stability and quality of service (and you won’t be starting from scratch, we already have stable processes and tools in place – we need your help to maintain and improve them).
What you’ll do
- Participate in defining the technological vision for the future of Rainbow Six Siege, in partnership with team leads.
- Define long-term roadmaps and execution strategies + support the teams responsible for implementation.
- Oversee and coordinate core tech teams (engine, graphics, network, audio, physics & destruction).
- Take part in technical discussions with team leads, tech leads, and technical architects + be a key member of the Rainbow Six Siege Tech Braintrust, the group involved in all major tech decisions for the project.
- Facilitate reuse, knowledge sharing, and collaboration across Ubisoft.
- Bring an iterative (DevOps) approach to development, focusing our efforts on delivering value faster, incrementally + reduce technical debt.
- Be accountable for the game’s quality of service.
- Continue to promote a sustainable work rhythm and a healthy and inclusive environment.
What you bring
- Experience in team management and real-time applications (or other relevant experience)
- Proficiency in C++
- Strategic leadership and solid communication skills
- A people-oriented approach: sure, you care about results, but you never lose sight of the dedicated people behind them
- A degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering (or related training)
- The ability to balance short-term priorities with long-term goals
- An entrepreneurial spirit that allows you to persevere and bounce back from setbacks in a constantly evolving environment
Just a heads up: If you require a work permit, your eligibility may depend on your education and years of relevant work experience, as required by the government.
