As a Technical Artist at Ubi Quebec, you’ll help build a mobile game user interface that’s visually impactful while maintaining its cutting-edge performance.

While keeping device and user limitations in mind, you ensure all interface assets can be rendered without compromising the artistic vision, on the one hand, or busting your memory budget on the other, setting benchmarks for your UI along the way.
