Team Lead Programming, Online Services
As a Programming Team Lead within the online services team, you'll oversee a small group of back-end programmers to develop innovative solutions that let Ubisoft production teams give players new, reliable, connected, and rewarding online experiences.
Regardless of the specific product, you'll be responsible for planning, following up on your team's work, and helping them develop new features to resolve interesting problems.
Your team will accomplish everything it sets out to do because of your technical expertise, leadership, and skill at making sound choices. You're great at inspiring your team and creating a culture of listening that motivates people to take initiative and be accountable.
What you'll do
A typical week will include prioritizing and anticipating issues to deliver optimized, reliable, and scalable solutions. Looking ahead, you'll help plan the roadmap and future features for the long term. Although you may spend some time programming, that won't necessarily be the case based on the project.
You'll follow up with partners and users on game production teams. You'll work with your direct supervisor, as well as technical experts assigned to the project.
The well-being of others matters to you. You'll meet team members regularly, listening attentively and giving constructive feedback.
You'll also talk about ways to improve processes, identify dependencies, and share technologies with managers from your project and other projects.
What you bring
Experience developing and managing online solutions, including:
- DevOps and SRE practices
- Microservice architecture
- RESTful APIs
- Cloud technologies (ex. AWS, GCP, etc.)
- Containerization and orchestration technologies (ex. Docker, ECS, Kubernetes, etc.)
- CI/CD pipelines (ex. GitLab)
- In-depth knowledge of at least one of these programming languages: C#, TypeScript, NodeJS, Python, Go
- Experience managing teams (ideally using Agile methodology)
- An innovative spirit: you're regularly on the lookout for ways to improve in a constantly evolving environment
- Solid interpersonal and communication skills
- A desire to continually learn new cloud technologies (the technologies that power the massive platform are always in motion, the team, too)
