Technical Architect (Machine Learning Platform)
The DNA team develops and manages a variety of data services and tools for storing and analyzing game telemetry. Known as a company-wide reference and trusted source, our products provide:
- real-time visibility on how Ubisoft titles are played; and
- an understanding of the habits and preferences of the people playing them.
Committed to knowledge sharing, we collect, process, and curate in-game data. Then transform it into clear and informative visualizations. The result? Meaningful metrics for production teams to make informed decisions and create even better gaming experiences.
As a Technical Architect within DNA, you’ll help drive the technical direction of a machine learning platform used to deploy machine learning algorithms like our content recommendation system. The purpose of this platform is to provide millions of players with even more personalized experiences.
With a focus on usability and scalability for our clients, you’ll help conceive the future of the product from a technical standpoint, while closely collaborating with tech leads, data developers, and data scientists to build a platform capable of making relevant and reliable recommendations. And, eventually, touch upon other domains within Ubisoft.
